Write a blog post answering the following questions. See the class date below.

How do you explain the behavior of the air pressure water rocket? How do Newton’s Laws and the idea of conservation of momentum apply? Compare the flight of the rocket to the flight of the hot air balloon? How would you explain the result where we used 600 ml of water?
