Slide 27

So, how can you determine which rocket will go higher by knowing its initial mass and speed, in the absence of air resistance?

Slide 28

Put these three rockets in order from highest to lowest

*

A

Mass 10

Speed 10

B

Mass 10

Speed 20

C

Mass 20

Speed 10

B highest

A and C are tied

Slide 29
