Step 14: The Physics Behind It

The physics behind the bottle rocket is Newtons 3rd Law that "For every action there is an equal reaction."  The water and air pressure cause the water to push out of the rockets engine and move upward. When the rocket is coming down, the parachute gets released from the rocket.
