pertandingan roket parachut dan jarak jauh di smk serendah

how to build you own parachut rocket

Create one bottle rocket that will fly straight and remain aloft for a maximum amount of time.


Two 2-liter bottles
One small plastic cone (athletic)
Duct TapeScissorsString
Manila Folder
Large Plastic Trash Bag
Masking Tape or Avery Paper reinforcement labels (you'll need 32/chute.)
Hole punch


Cut the top and the bottom off of one bottle, so that the center portion or a cylinder remains.

Create one bottle rocket that will fly straight and remain aloft for a maximum amount of time.

Get the manila folder; fins will be made from it. Cut three shapes out of the folded bottom in the shape that the diagram shows. Your fins will be triangular.

The next drawing indicates how the fin should look once folded.

Mark straight lines on the bottle by putting the bottle in the door frame or a right angle and trace a line on the bottle with a marker. Use these lines as guides to place the fins on the bottles.

Make three fins and tape them on the rocket. Be sure that the fins are spaced equally around the rocket body. This can be achieved by using a piece of string and wrapping it around the bottle and marking the string where it meets the end. Mark the string and lay it flat on a meter-stick or ruler. Find the circumference of the bottle by measuring the length of the string to the mark. Once you know the circumference, then you can divide it by three to find the distances the fins should be separated.

Use the athletic cone to make your nose cone. Use fairly rigid scissors and cut the bottom square off of the cone. Depending upon your project's mass limitations, place a golf ball sized piece of clay in the tip of the cone. This will add mass to the cone and give the rocket/cone more inertia. Then, using scissors, trim the cone to make it symmetrical. (Hint: the diameter of the bottom of the cone should be a little wider than the diameter of a 2-liter bottle.

Attach the cone with string to the top of the other two-liter bottles so that it looks like the diagram. Tie a knot in the end of each piece of string to give it more friction and tape it using a piece of duct tape to the inside of the cone and to the inside of the rocket body.

Many students have trouble with their nosecone getting stuck on the top of the rocket and not coming off. This can be prevented by making a pedestal for the cone to sit on. It should be high enough up so that there is space between the cone and the top of the parachute compartment. You can make a pedestal out of the same material you will make the fins, the manila folder. Make three mini-fins, invert them and tape them on the rocket where the cone should sit.

Making the Parachute

Don't forget a good parachute has shroud lines that are at least as long as the diameter of the canopy.

Lay your garbage bag out flat. Cut off the closed end. It should look like a large rectangle and be open at both ends. Lay down the bag on a flat surface and smooth it out.

The bag has a long side and a short side and is open at both ends. Fold it in two so that the short side is half as long as it was originally.

Make sure the edges are perfectly lined up during each fold. Now fold it in half along the long axis.

Make a triangle with the base of the triangle being the closed end of the previous fold.

Now fold it again. Fold the hypotenuse so that it lines up with the right side of the triangle in the above drawing.

As mentioned earlier the minimum length of the shroud line should be the same length as the diameter of the canopy.
Examine the base of the triangle and find the shortest length from the tip to the base. This is the limiting factor for chute size. The most pointed end will end up being the middle of the canopy.

For an example; if you want the diameter of the chute to be 34 inches then measure 17 inches from the center of the canopy (the most pointed side of the parachute) along each side, mark it and then cut it.

After cutting it, unfold it. If you have been successful there should be two canopies.

Fold the canopy in half, then into quarters, then into eighths. Carefully crease the folds each time. Crease it well and fold it again. Now the canopy is divided into 16ths. Unfold the parachute. Notice the crease marks. Get masking tape and put a piece around the edge at each fold mark. You may also use Avery reinforcement tabs. Place one on both the inside and outside of every crease, making sure that they are overlaid on top of each other.

Punch holes through every piece of masking tape or Avery tab pairs and use these to attach the kite-string shroud lines.

Carefully read the safety instructions. Fill the rocket half full of water, place on the launch pad, pressurize, and launch.

Be safe, and have fun!

what is fizik ?


The Malaysian science curriculum comprises three core science subjects and four elective science subject. The core subjects are science at primary school lever, science at lower secondary school level and science at upper secondary school level. Elective science subjects offered up the upper secondary levels are and consist biology, chemistry, physics and additional science. The core science subjects for the primary and lower secondary level are designed to provide students with basic science knowledge, prepare students to be literate in science and enable students to continue their science education upper at secondary level. Core science at upper secondary levels is designed to produce students who are literate in science, innovative, and able to apply scientific knowledge in decision-making and problem solving in everyday life. The elective science subjects prepare students who are more science subjects prepare students who are more scientifically inclined to pursue the study of science at post-secondary level. This group of students would take up careers in the field of science and technology and play a leading role in this field for national.


The aims of the physics curriculum for secondary school are to provide students with the knowledge and skills of science and technology and enable them to solve problems and make decisions in everyday life based on scientific attitudes and noble values.


The physics curriculum for secondary school enables students to :

1. acquire knowledge in physics and technology in the context of natural phenomena and everyday life experiences
2. understand developments in the field of physics and technology
3. acquire scientific and thinking skill
4. apply knowledge and skill in a creative and critical manner for problem solving and decision making
5. Face challenges in the scientific and technological world and be willing to contribute towards the development of science and technology.
6. Evaluate science and technology information wisely and effectively.
7. Practice and internalize scientific attitudes and good moral.
8. Appreciate the contributions of science and technology towards national development and the well-being of mankind.
9. Realise that scientific discoveries are the result of human endeavour to the best of his or her intellectual and mental capabilities to understand natural phenomena for the betterment of mankind.
10. Be aware of the need to love and care for the environment and play an active role in its preservation and conservation
