------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Science Lab Report About Rocket Science Background Information The aim of this experiment is to measure the maximum height the rocket reaches. It would be interesting to record our experiment in slow motion so that we can analyse our observations in more detail. To do this experiment, we are going to use hydrogen to make it the fuel of our rocket. For the rocket then to fly up into the sky, we need a combustion reaction. Combustion involves a reaction between any combustible material and an oxidizer to form an oxidized product. Combustion is an exothermic reaction, so it releases heat, but sometimes the reaction proceeds so slowly …show more content…
How you could overcome it if you did the experiment again The match did not light. This affects the hydrogen that is in the bottle, therefore, it also affects the results. When we had to light the match on the ruler, but if the match breaks, we have to get another one from other people, and we are doing that, the hydrogen in the bottle escapes, so it does not have the amount …show more content…
For the extension on this lab report, I will design a car that will be propelled by the reaction of when hydrogen and oxygen mix. To make this car, we will need two full tanks of oxygen and hydrogen (one of oxygen and one of hydrogen). When the driver presses the accelerator of the car, it will make a signal to the tanks for them to open on the exact amount (2 hydrogen : 1 oxygen). Now, the mix will go through a pipe that will lead it directly to the exhaust pipe, where the mix will be forced out the the exhaust pipe that will produce a combustion reaction (2H2 + O2 → 2H2O → Combustion Reaction) which will then give the car energy for it to work. These are the steps for this to work are: 1. The liquid fuel (propellant)(hydrogen) has to be stored in very high pressures and very cold. 2. The oxidizer is stored just beneath the fuel. The oxidizer is a highly reactive chemical that creates a high-energy reaction when is mixed with the propellant. 3. The machines control the amount of the two liquids that enter the combustion chamber so that they
What is new in the space travel world? Two article excerpts by author Cameron Keady “A Success in Space” and “America’s New Spacecraft” describe two space crafts with very different missions. The purpose of this essay is to explain the purpose of each mission and then argue which mission was the more successful. The first mission, as described in “A Success in Space,” used a small probe called the Philae lander, which had been dropped by Rosetta, a much larger craft that had been traveling 10 years prior to the drop of Philae.
Trans Alantic Flight 800 was one of the worst aviation disasters. The crash goes down in U.S history as one of the deadliest airplane crashes. Flight 800 is still relevant today because of the cause of the crash. There is much to debate about how the flight crashed but the fight still is recorded as one of the worst aviation disasters. A mechanical failure and an attack by the U.S navy are the theories behind the crash of Flight 800.
Jetstar should not expand its low cost business model to serve international destinations besides the one already being served. The reason lies in the company’s strategic positioning of being a low cost, no-frills carrier serving a price sensitive market and providing these services consistently. The company’s key distinguishable value drivers and the activities are also tailored around the low-cost business model. These low cost practices included automated ticketing, point-to-point service, short hauls, meals on charge, plying on non-overlapping routes (from the parent airline), between mid sized cities and using secondary airports to reduce operational costs. Its low fare price structure attracts price-sensitive customers including families
I unsure but I would say measuring a telescope that orbits Earth would be more advantageous. My reasoning is we may be better able to calculate the parallax because it would be close enough to use the distance formula. But if the telescope was orbiting around Neptune it would be harder to determine the telescope's parallax. Lab Report
Figure 1 Interpretation of the data Graph 1 indicates that as the dry mass of the water rocket increases, the maximum altitude it can reach when launched decreases. The R2 value, which indicates the strength of the correlation between two variables, where one indicates perfect correlation and zero indicates no correlation, in this graph is 0.989. Moreover, the correlation is negative, which can be seen from the coefficient of the X in the equation (-40.667x+ 30.02). For every gram the rocket’s mass increases the maximum height gets reduced by 0.0407 meters. This specifies that as the dry mass of the water rocket increases, the maximum height it can reach decreases.
With the development of technology, pollution stroke all over the world pushing engineers to outcome themselves and find a solution that pleases both the consumer and the environment thinking about the future of our planet. In 1900 the first gas-electric hybrid car came to life and was driven at the first National Automobile Show in New York City, United States and surprisingly this car model was favored as patrons’ first choice. Unlike it was known the model came to life in 1900 but the idea was born in the early 20th century for reasons that are different than those famous in the 21st century. Feeling cars were too noisy and smelly Jacob Lohner from Vienna created the first hybrid car in coalition with the Austrian engineer, Ferdinand Porsche
Identifying the most critical leadership problems within the brigade, I will use “the Rocket Model” as a team building and guiding tool that helps me to get the brigade back on track. I will use the following seven components of the Rocket Model (Mission/ Vision, Talent, Norms, Buy-In, Power, Morale, and Results) to build and develop the brigade. Primary, I will focus on the Mission and Talent during the remaining time of the preparing phase. Mission/ Vision: the first thing I will do is to publicize my vision clearly, which is to make the brigade one of the best in the army as it always was.
Following that step, the uncertainty of the masses was determined in addition to the errors for the measurements of the cylinders. Then, the length and the diameter of the four cylinders were obtained using the digital caliper. After acquiring these measurements, the relative error and uncertainty was determined and the volume of the cylinders was calculated and recorded in excel. The relative error and the uncertainty for those data values were also
I will learn that a reaction is summarized by this formula: 2 H2O2 -->2 H2O + 02. I think my science project is interesting because chemistry happens in the world around you every day, not just in a lab. I think what you would learn can keep you self and prevent you from playing around mixing thing that could hurt you. You can’t mix all liquids and solids together because it could be harmful. Some liquid can cause a chemical reaction when mixing solids.
There is an increasingly interesting debate ongoing between cars that run on gas, and cars that run on “gas”. The first example is the power source everyone is most familiar. Gasoline has power automobiles since the days of the Model T. However, there is a new gas on the transportation horizon. Natural gas actually equates more with the definition of real gas, than does the petroleum-based liquid you squirt from a hose at your local filling station.
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this report is to explain how culture influenced Rocket Lab from its early development up to its continuous progression. It also includes probable reasons on why the company decided to transfer their main office to the US, while keeping the New Zealand office as a subsidiary. As a multinational organization, we also aim to attest what are the specific factors that may have influence their success and what are the possible obstacles they would encounter in the long run.
The hybrid vehicle is common in the market. It helps reduce tailpipe emission by having two mixtures of engines: an internal combustion engine and an electric motor powered by an electric generator. When the speed of the vehicle is moving at a low rate, the electric motor will automatically engaged and will provide the horsepower to the vehicle so the internal combustion engine is not in use so tailpipe emission is at its minimum. The electric vehicle is also common. It gets energy from an electric grid.
Throughout the 20th century, our views of space have changed. We started thinking about space, with the same way we started thinking about Pythagoras’s theory of how the world is round. Curiosity and rivalry have ignited the space race, but rivalry between United States and Soviet Union has boosted the development of the space race. The Cold War was ongoing so neither of country wanted to lose to each other. Also, this race determined which country was more advanced compared to another.
THE FUNCTION OF ENGINEERS IN PROTECTING THE SOCIETY 1. MEANING OF ENGINEERING We often use the words “science and technology” for engineering. what can be done by engineers with science and technology? Researchers think about it and do some research which resulted in the understanding that engineering is about planning and designing something that helps society by regulating science and technology.
