BottleRocketSim v.1.0
The Bottle Rocket Simulator by Steven Gutierrez

Suggested Simulator Activites:

  • Is putting a cone on your rocket beneficial?
  • What calculating factors does putting the cone change?
  • Why is putting water in the rocket helpful?
  • What is the popping sound I hear a few seconds after the rocket launches?
  • Why does a bigger bottle help increase thrust?

BottleRocketSim v.1.0 - Application

BottleRocketSim v.1.0 - Simulator will open in new window. If the simulator does not start in a new window it may be because this is a Macromedia Flash SWF file and you will need the Flash player to run the simulator.


For a more accurate simulator that also models stomp rockets, and solid model rockets , visit this site:
