How do you make a Coke bottle rocket?
Fill the chamber with as much gas as you want. We say: the more butane the better. Then go outside and let it rip. Turn the bottle upside down, watch the highly flammable gas mix with the carbon dioxide in your Coke , and boom there goes your rocket flying into space.
How do you launch a plastic bottle rocket?
Launch the bottle rocket . To launch the rocket : Hold the rocket by the neck of the bottle and pump air into it. The rocket will go off when the cork can no longer withstand the pressure building up in the bottle . Let go of the bottle .
How do you make homemade flying rockets?
Rockets made of baking soda and vinegar are a great chemistry lesson for kids. All you need is baking soda, vinegar, a paper towel, three pencils, some tape, and a plastic soda bottle. This basic chemical reaction can launch the rocket up to 100 feet.
How high can a bottle rocket go?
Water rockets are easily capable of 100-meter- high flights, but advanced hobbyists have combined bottles and staged bottles for flights over 300 meters high . Water bottle rockets are ideal for teaching Newton’s laws of motion.
What is the best fin shape for a bottle rocket?
The fins should be thin and tapered. Swept back fins create less drag than straight fins and rounded corners on a fin create less drag than sharp corners. Every surface on the rocket should be as smooth as possible.
Which soda works best with Mentos?
What makes a bottle rocket fly higher?
So to help your rocket go faster and higher : 1) The faster the fluid can be expelled from the rocket , the greater the thrust (force) of the rocket . 2) Increasing the pressure inside the bottle rocket produces greater thrust. This is because a greater mass of air inside the bottle escapes with a higher acceleration.
What makes Coke explode when you put Mentos in it?
As the Mentos candy sinks in the bottle, the candy causes the production of more and more carbon dioxide bubbles, and the rising bubbles react with carbon dioxide that is still dissolved in the soda to cause more carbon dioxide to be freed and create even more bubbles, resulting in the eruption.
How much water do u put in a bottle rocket?
A: The simple answer is something less than half full. Since the compressed air stores the energy, and the water provides momentum, both are needed. Fill perhaps 40-50% of the motor volume with water .
How does the amount of water affect a bottle rocket?
Adding a small amount of water to the bottle increases the action force. The water expels from the bottle before the air does , turning the bottle rocket into a bigger version of a water rocket toy (available in toy stores).
