How can we use Newton’s Laws of Motion to design an investigation with a balloon, straw, and fishing line?
How does this lab relate to the motion of a rocket?
Why do you think the balloon produces thrust and travels the opposite direction?
Does gravity affect the motion of a balloon? If so how, or why not?
Would there be any changes if the lab required the balloon to travel vertically instead of horizontally? Why or why not?
Would it make a difference if weight was added to the balloon? Why or why not?
