- Parachute and altimeter port sizing calculations (on different tabs)

## External links

- Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association (WRA2)
- Dean's Benchtop — Dean Wheeler's excellent site about water rocket physics, with a simulator app, and math fully explained. In my simulator I account for some things he doesn't, he figures things out in different ways, and he goes about the math with more rigor than me. Interesting rocket and launcher ideas too.
- Physics Forums — a great place to get (and give) help on all manner of physics and math problems. I couldn't have completed the water thrust chapter without the help I received.
