(Hobbies, sports, health, etc.).
What is the effect of the height of a ramp (3.5cm, 7.0cm, and 10.5cm high) on the distance a “Hot Wheels” car will travel in centimeters from the bottom end of the ramp?
Manipulated Variable: (x) The ONE
Responding Variable: (y)
The height of the ramp – 3.5cm, 7.0cm, 10.5cm
The distance the car travels in centimeters from the bottom of the ramp to the back wheels of the car.
List all possible results
I think that the car will roll farther when the ramp is raised higher because I know that my bicycle and wagon go faster when I ride down a hill or down the steepest part of my driveway.
Detailed directions that another person should be able to use to do your project the same way that you did it and get similar results.

Distance in cm
The data shows that the car rolls almost
twice as far each time the ramp height is
raised. The average distance at 2cm high
was 22.5cm, at 4cm high it traveled
43.2cm, and at 6cm high it averaged
The results supported my hypothesis.
The higher you raise the ramp, the
faster and farther the car travels.
