A stupid question by a stupid person

    I'm new on this forum. I am currently building a paper rocket.
    Just a question (if you can please help): how much weight do you think spray paint or permanent marker will add to the paper rocket?

    Thanks in advance,

    Aha! First tell me how much weight you add to the weight of the Earth :wink:

    This is impossible to answer, it depends on how much you put on and how big your rocket is.

    Perhaps you could test paint a piece of cardboard, weighing befor and after to see if you can detect the change.
