Students will investigate the action-reaction principal (Newton's third law of motion) by creating water-propelled engines and changing different variables to see how their engines perform.

In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to detect frost in lunar craters, determine the density of Mars' liquid core, calculate the powered output from a dam, and find out how far a spacecraft travels as it returns data to Earth.
