Exclamation In need of quick 101 of Intentionality...

Working on a paper for my intro philosophy class and I've come upon a problem. Although I grasp the vague concept of what "intentionality" is... I can't come up with a good way to really describe it. From what I understand it's a way of describing a mental state or what it's about. I know a physical state can't have intentionality either but why? Any help at all with this would be greatly appreciated or feel free to go off on anything as long as it ties into the main topic... I found out really fast I'm not one that's big into philosophy, I enjoy the material but too much reading and comprehension for me lulz.

I thought intentionality can be exhibited by a physical state. Am I wrong? I remember reading something in my intro class about a rocket that is programmed to bomb a house that has a specific look but doesn't exist and so the rocket keeps flying around with the intention to destroy the house.

I've seen that example too... As best as I could understand, the rocket's physical state was dependent on it's mental state. Since it's mental state couldn't find the non-existent house that would then result in it's physical state of flying around... I really don't know. I'm lost reading some this stuff, I've understood everything thus far in the class except for this.

Pretty good at bull****ting papers so I already have it halfway done.
