# Learning Rocket Science #Software – Rocket Altitude Calculation Program

This post is also available in: Türkçe (Turkish)

## Introduction

• The altitude calculation program can calculate how high your rocket will reach.
• However, this is not its only purpose; it also provides information such as the maximum speed reached and the time it will take to reach the highest point.
• More importantly, it guides you at the beginning of the design process. To explain in more detail, if you have a 1 kg payload and need to lift it to an altitude of 1 km, you can determine how much thrust in newtons is required. With this program, you can predict that.
• On the other hand, if you have a 100-newton rocket motor and need to lift the rocket to an altitude of 5 km, how heavy can the rocket be at most? With this program, you can foresee the solutions to all these and similar problems, illuminating your path during the design phase.
• ##### The Rocket Altitude Calculation program is written using PHP, CSS, JS, and HTML.
• You can ask your questions, issues, opinions, and suggestions about the Rocket Altitude Calculation Program, which is the third publicly available domestic and national rocket software in Turkey, in the QA Forum.
