Rocket Flight Path
  • Jamie L Waters, University of South Florida

This project uses Newton’s Second Law of Motion, Euler’s method, basic physics, and basic calculus to model the flight path of a rocket. From this project, one can find the height and velocity at any point from launch to the maximum altitude, apogee. Once complete this can be compared to what the actual values were to see if the method is a plausible way of estimation. The rocket used in this project is modeled after Bullistic-1 which was launched by the Society of Aeronautics and Rocketry at the University of South Florida.
