The purpose of the rocket project is to see a use for impulse. Model rocket engines like the A8 from Estes are specified for their impulse. We launch, measure the altitude using right triangles, then compare to the prediction.

This project has a ton of error, though — and that’s something I want to tackle before using the project again.
