Weights – Water Rocket Modules

This page shows modules of our water rockets and their corresponding weights. For individual parts weights refer to this page. I will add to and update this page over time. This page is available in the Weights Category section under Archives Menu.

The digital scale I have weighs in increments of 1g up to a maximum of 3000g. I will put the ounces equivalent beside the grams weight in the table.

This information may be useful when determining the weight of your water rocket while using simulators ie: Cliffords Wrocket Simulator
