Campbell, Dean J.; Staiger, Felicia A.; Jujjavarapu, Chaitanya N.
Journal of Chemical Education, v92 n10 p1687-1691 Oct 2015
The whoosh bottle rocket car has been redesigned to be more reusable and more robust, making it even easier to use as a demonstration. Enhancements of this demonstration, including the use of heat sensitive ink and electronic temperature probes, enable users to find warmer and cooler regions on the surface of the whoosh bottle.
