Flying experiment

Purpose:  we are trying to figure out where the energy is coming from. 
One rocket and a handle, one rubber band. 

Method: we put the rocket on the rubber band then we pulled the rubber band back and the we released the rocket for it to fly. 

Observations: when it started to fly it counldn't go higher so the gravity pulled it down.

Conclusion: from this experiment where this energy is coming from it is first portenteil energy it's power comes fromus pulling the rubber band when we release the rubber band the energy turns into kenitic because it was going to the rocket when we release the rubber the power is on the rocket for it to fly.

  1. A good description of your understanding of potential and kinetic energy. Well done Nasibah
