Rocket Equations

One of my goals in my Rocketry Hobby is to get kids interested in rocket science….to go beyond the “cool” factor of the rocket and the launch and acquire and understanding of the physics and the math behind the process. I’ve tried to explain in simple terms some of the concepts of the Barrowman equations to my 10 year old daughter. She can show me the CG of a rocket and has had some experience testing stability with the string method.

Here is a great site for Rocketry Equations
and information on stability here
