RocketModeler II SIMULATOR

 

This is a copy of the RocketModeler II program. To test a Bottle Rocket, click on the blue button labeled "Water". You can change the design by clicking on the blue buttons above the graphic, then use the sliders or input boxes at the lower right. Click "Go" when you are finished, then click "Fuel". You can change the pressure in the tank, and the volume of water by using the inputs at the lower right. Click "Go" when you are finished, then click "Pad" to set launch conditions. Click "Go" when you are finshed, then click "Launch". If all the "Mission Control" buttons are Green, you can click "Fire" to launch the rocket.

RocketModeler II can also simulate stomp rockets and model rockets. For a complete user's manual for RocketModeler II, visit this page.
