I am chalanging my self I'm trying to take a 18mm minimum diameter rocket to supersonic flights but should I use a parabolic nose cone or an ogive?
Well... unless you manage to carry a recording altimeter on board your rocket, or have a nice, high-resolution tripod-mounted video camera, there's not much you can do to prove that your rocket went to mach.Well I guess it's just for bragging rights, wing able to say you made a rocket go supersonic
The mathematical formulae are different. Check the links in this sentence and below and see the tangent ogive section and the parabolic section.Forgive my ignorance,but aren't ogive and parabolic the same thing?
