Water rocket is an upside down plastic soda bottle and fins and nosecone are attached to it. The task of the nose cone is creating aerodynamic state for the rocket and minimizing air resistance. In the rockets that use parachutes for landing, the parachute is placed within this section. For direct flight of the rocket, fins are required. In order to fly, first a system should be built for the nozzle of the bottle that keeps water inside the bottle and after the rocket launch should allow water to exit from the tip of the bottle.
