    I have been set a challenge to build a rocket car, and have a large collection of chemicals at my disposal, does anyone know what reaction would be best to create a good rocket car, and how would i contain the reaction to propell the car forwards????
    Thanks
    Ash

    ok seriously you want to mix a reactive Metal with high Mol acid the more reactive the better and the stronger acid that faster the reaction, reason being Metal and acid produces a salt and hydrogen


    on a basis of Obtainability I would go with magnesium shards/filing (dust if possible) in 3mol Hydrochloric acid, contained in a titanium container
