Your team MUST DOCUMENT ALL DESIGN DETAILS ON A ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT FOR CREDIT - (design & construction details, payload mass, launch angle.)

Stomp on the 2L bottle with ACROSS THE MIDDLE, WITH ONE FOOT ONLY (foot @ right angle to the length of the bottle - lengthwise ruins the bottle quickly, and you only get one bottle exchange!)

You must get from the back nearest seam to the building of the nearest sidewalk to beyond the edge of the furthest sidewalk for group credit. First team to make the goal gets double credit:> Sharing elements of success is encouraged with an additional full credit (3x overall:>).

Obtain from Mr. Justin a #7*2-hole stopper, some glass tubing, a cutter, & some non-coated tongs. Use your Bunsen, igniters, safety equipment, & gauze heat shields as found in your lab stations. If you missed the intro to glassware after break, team up with someone who is comfortable with the techniques, or see Mr. Justin before school for help. Design your own nozzles to fit into the stopper, harness, & bearing. Mr.J. MUST approve stopper tightness as a fuse before runs. Experiment with water amounts, distance from burner, and of course nozzle design. Be careful to vary only one thing at a time, so you’ll know what changes in performance result from.Test your nozzles using splashguards at each station, and Boiling Flasks (Fishers) checked out from Mr. Justin, who will approve all experimental runs!10 ADDITIONAL points for EACH 100rpm above 200, NO LIMIT! Write up as a standard CER (including controlled, manipulated, & resionding variables, & illustrations of the nozzle, harness, & ring stand design). Minimum of 2 nozzle designs, 3 varied runs each, within a minimum of 2 sides of a paper handwritten.

Each table / period gets a 2L bottle, tape, fin, nose cone materials, and design software.

Also consult the
water rocket web pages, water-rockets.com &
Air Command.
(tips)

memo - the multistage design on BigFoot's page does not work:<...

The launcher & pump are shared among all tables. Your table group can launch on your own, but ALL GEAR MUST COME BACK EACH TIME USED (or lose credit)!

Consider mass distribution, water/air ratios (reaction mass & impulse), pressure, streamlining, and center of pressure/center of gravity (cp/cg) placement.

Vary one thing at a time, & RECORD what causes what.

To find center of pressure, balance a cutout of your design. CG applies to the actual model, loaded & empty.

DownLoad a PDF file for making your own Altitude Tracker if interested in assessing altitude performance on your own. Mr. J. still needs to VERIFY altitude XC's.

Present your table group's findings in an oral presentation to the class.

Categories for extra credit are:
ALTITUDE (10pts/100ft.),

DOWNRANGE DISTANCE ATTAINED (10pts/100ft - must designate direction to be measured before launch),

EGG LAUNCH & INTACT RECOVERY (40pts),

PARACHUTE (10pts/functioning mechanism of significant difference)

GLIDER (10pts/100ft downrange, or 20pts for 2 phase flight - clean boost, & glide recovery).


Celestial Navigation 101 =

Constellation Blanks (Titled by Season & Page #)(3pts/each)
Identify 10 constellations, and one named star apiece MINIMUM. Suggest making WORKING prints, working in pencil, and number / lettering constellations / stars on the front, and identifying them on back.
Use YourSky , SkyView , Northern Sky Highlights , SEDS Constellations, and EarthViewer (for downloadable planetaria applications) links for help.
