Disposable rocket engines produce a given thrust to launch model rockets at an efficient rate. With some changes made in chemical composition, these engines can be improved to result in greater thrust, efficiency, and cost to produce them. This experiment is focused primarily on altering the oxidizer as an independent variable and recording data that compares the difference between thrust over time. Data is displayed through graphs with Time along the X-Axis and Thrust along the Y-Axis. To ensure the most accurate data collection, surrounding variables will be identical, and data will be recorded digitally using a program called Logger Pro. The Data is analyzed, and a conclusion is made with its connection to the hypothesis.
