A3_9 Rocket Powered Ski Jump Part 2

Cameron Dickens, Jack Healings, Elliot Sampson, Ben Carlisle


In this paper we continue the analysis of a rocket powered MINI attempting a ski jump. Here, we continue the investigation by creating two models, one theoretical and one realistic. Each of these have been plotted in order to visualise the difference in the two. From the maximum velocity previously calculated we estimate the car should be able to travel approximately 440 m horizontally. A more realistic velocity, 45 ms$^{-1}$, results in a horizontal distance travelled of 170 m.
