Nordeck, Charlie
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Newton's 3rd Law of Motion states that, "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This video uses model rocketry to explore this concept, and introduces the basics of rocket propulsion and the forces that affect rockets in flight (thrust, gravity, and drag) A demonstration of the use of both solid fuel and compressed air rockets is shown, while colorful graphics illustrate key concepts and terms. It's a great way to generate interest in the field of aerospace technology!
