Jules Verne’s novel “From the Earth to the Moon” will be read and students will be asked to design rockets.
NEWTON’s Laws of Motion -Explain the relationship between the concepts of force, acceleration and mass.
– Explain action-reaction forces with examples.
– Determines the direction of the net force and calculates its magnitude.
– Make calculations about the motion of the object under net force.
– Students are enabled to obtain the mathematical model between impulse and momentum by making use of Newton’s second law of motion.

|Topic||The novel “From the Earth to the Moon” by Jules Verne is read. Then the class is asked the question: “The story is also notable in that Verne attempted to do some rough calculations as to the requirements for the cannon and in that, considering the comparative lack of empirical data on the subject at the time, some of his figures are remarkably accurate. However, his scenario turned out to be impractical for safe manned space travel since a much longer barrel would have been required to reach escape velocity while limiting acceleration to survivable limits for the passengers.” If you were, what kind of rocket would you send to the Moon?|
