Which brand of paper towel is the strongest?
Amount of water
Brand of paper towel
How much pennies it can hold.
If we test Bounty, Paseo, Kirkland, Sparkle, Valutime, Publix Ultra, and the school’s paper towel, then Bounty will be the strongest.
7 brands of paper towels
60 mL of water
1.Fill the measuring cup with 60 mL of water.
Bounty averaged 36 pennies. Paseo averaged 154 pennies. ValuTime averaged 123 pennies. Publix Ultra averaged 233 pennies. School paper towel (Tweety) averaged 125 pennies. Sparkle averaged 179 pennies. School paper towel (Sly) averaged 56. Kirkland averaged 359 pennies.
My hypothesis was not supported by my experiment. Bounty held the least amount of pennies, while Kirkland held the most. However, when we looked at the sizes of the paper towels, Bounty was the smallest. In the future we will make sure all of the paper towels are the same size before experimenting.
