Abstract:An experiment to discover what angle of nose cone, on a model rocket, would produce the least amount of drag. The forces on a rocket; thrust, weight and the aerodynamic forces of lift and drag; are presented and discussed in detail. While conducting the experiment, Newton's 3 Laws of Motion were researched and applied to model rockets.
