Air Powered Rockets

In this on-line demo we explore conservation of momentum using balloons, strings, and other common items. We have presented this demo many times and the results have always been positive: Students learn about momentum and everyone has lots of fun with the rockets.

This demo was conceived and developed by Angela Da Silva, Jeff Wilkerson, and Paul Shestople.
