## Abstract/Description

Using applications of Newton's Second Law, I modeled the motion of a rocket moving in the vertical direction. The ideal case was treated first. Then the variation of g with respect to height was added. Then the third simulation added the effect of air resistance to the rocket's motion. The velocities and accelerations where found using the derived equations. The height the rocket flew was graphed.
