Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Looked cool so I thought I might post, for those who can't quite get their hands on Kno3, I'm sure that they can get their hands on weed killer (sodium chlorate, which is an oxidizer) and some table sugar.

He DID post it to the "off topic" forum which is the correct place to post anything not related to water rockets.

Ok fairysnuff!

HOWEVER there is the potential for weedkiller/sugar mixtures to be turned into bombs!

EVER thought of that and just HOW it might affect this forum if "the spooks" ever found out that some lunatic had blown up a shopping mall (or similar) after finding out how to make such stuff from this forum?

Oh don't let the paranoia in. That's how governments justify mass surveilence programs. This is just a video he found on youtube.

I'm more concerned at that kid prepping a weed killer concoction in the kitchen with eating utensils.

I'm not that stupid. It's not like its even that harmful. It just causes oxidation of the hemoglobin in your blood and makes it as thick as molasses. So far it seems like no one likes it. Whats that to me? Thought it was cool while I was searching for that.

I use Dihydrogen Monoxide even though it has killed more people than all other chemicals combined. #livingontheedge.

Are you allowed to purchase "Stump Remover"?

Since I am 15, my dad would have to take me to the store to purchase it (unless I can buy it from my neighbor, or have my friends smuggle it home for me). On the way to Home Depot, my dad would say, "Why do you need stump remover". I say "Uh? Well I know, I need to remove that tree in the woods." Things would go down hill from there as my dad has a pretty bad idea of me playing with explosives although I try to make him understand that it is just an oxidizer, he says that in school, he remembers it being flammable. I build a hybrid motor today and the flame melted the nozzle made of a metal garden hose connector. I made the oxygen from bleach and hydrogen peroxide and the fuel being PVC. I ignited it using steel wool.
