Abstract: Net force refers to what you get when you consider the total effect of all the forces acting on something. If two equal forces are acting in opposite directions, the net force is zero. A net force acting on an object causes the object to accelerate. The study of rockets is an excellent way for students to learn the basics of forces and the response of an object to external forces. The motion of an object in response to an external force was first accurately described over 300 years ago by Sir Isaac Newton, using his three laws of motion. Engineers still use Newton’s laws to design and predict the flight of full scale rockets. Forces are vector quantities having both a magnitude and a direction. When describing the action of forces, one must account for both the magnitude and the direction. In flight, a rocket is subjected to four forces; weight, thrust, and the aerodynamic forces, lift and drag.
