Why Do Rockets Have Fins?

posted in: Learn, The Science Behind, Videos | 0

I’ve always been really interested in model rockets but I never really thought about how fins keep a rocket stable. In this video, we go into the science behind these rocket fins as we look at center of pressure, center of gravity and the Barrowman equations.

Thank you so much for watching this video! If you would like to suggest a video idea please leave it in the comments, and if you enjoyed please like and subscribe! It was my pleasure to add a bit of science to your day!
