Basics of How rockets work

Science Topics

Have you seen what happens if you let the air out of a balloon?

The air goes one way and the balloon moves in the opposite direction, that is why a balloon can be used to propel things, like the Lego car shown in the picture below.

Rockets work just like that! Exhaust gases come out of the engine nozzle at high speed and push the rocket forward.

What is a Rocket?

The word “rocket” can mean different things. Most people think of a tall, thin, round vehicle. They think of a rocket that launches into space.

“Rocket” can also mean a type of engine and like we said, it can mean a vehicle that uses that engine

Can you tell from the pictures were the engine would be placed?
