This lesson attempts to answer the question, "What exactly is pushing back on a rocket when it is launched?" Up to this point, students have worked with Newton's Laws of Motion and rocket launches, but haven't yet answered the question of why we need so much force when launching rockets. This lesson introduces students to the composition, layers, and pressure of the atmosphere.
