Making a Rocket

  • #1
Hi, I'm in first year physics this year and each group in my class has been tasked with making a rocket. Since we're using old pepsi bottles, we just need to make a nose cone, tail fins, and perhaps a little paper on the main body to draw a design on it.

I looked a little bit online, but I as unable to find the correct angle to make the optimal cone nose cone. Do any of you have any idea about a good range of angles to use, or where I can find such information? Also, how does the weight of the cone and the completed rocket effect what angle the nose cone should be at?

Thanks in advance.
