Measuring Model Rocket Acceleration.
Jenkins, Randy A.
Physics Teacher, v31 n1 p10-15 Jan 1993
Presents an experiment that measures the acceleration and velocity of a model rocket. Lift-off information is transmitted to a computer that creates a graph of the velocity. Discusses the analysis of the computer-generated data and differences between calculated and experimental velocity and acceleration of several rocket types. (MDH)
