Description

WRC  is a part of PHYS101 (Introductory mechanics) course.  A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure  vessel – the engine of the rocket – is usually a used plastic soft drink bottle. Water in the rocket is forced out by a pressurized gas, typically compressed air. This process follows mainly the Newton’s second and third laws of motion.

This event is organized in order to help student understanding the physics laws of motion, especially the Newton’s second and third laws.

Total students participated: 31. Number of groups: 7 groups (3 groups with 5 students each and 4 groups with 4 students each). Number of rockets: at least 1 rocket and maximum of 3 rockets per group
