Principles of the water rockets

First we will look at the problem of propulsion. How does it all work, what is the thrust of a water rocket, what can be done to have a greater or lesser thrust, how to get a greater total impulse, all of these questions we will try to answer in the propulsion page.

Then, it will be interesting to calculate the different parameters of the flight: altitude, range, peak time. This is what we will find in the page "the flight"

Finally, for the rocket to hold the performance that we will have calculated, its flight behavior will have to be as perfect as possible, in other words, for this rocket to be stable on its trajectory. We will therefore examine the factors that influence this stability and how to regulate them to have an optimal behavior. And to fully understand this part, the page on the basics of aerodynamics will provide some useful notions.
