Rolling Away

Mrs. Walker’s Second Grade Class


Rolling away

Problem

Does the mass of the ball affect the distance a ball travels?


Rolling away

Hypothesis

If we roll 3 different balls down the same ramp to measure the distance it rolls, then we think the metal ball will go the farthest distance because it has more mass than the other two.


Rolling away

Hypothesis

20 votes for metal ball

0 votes for styrofoam ball

4 votes for wooden ball


Rolling away

Variables

Independent variable: We used different types of balls.

Constant: We used the same ramp for each trial.


Rolling away

Materials

  • Meter Stick

  • Metal Ball

  • Wooden Ball

  • Styrofoam Ball

  • Balance Scale


Rolling away

Procedures

  • Place your ramp on the ground.

  • Roll the metal ball down the ramp and record the distance.

  • Repeat step 2 two more times and record the distance.

  • Roll the wooden ball down the ramp and record the distance.

  • Repeat step 4 two more times and record the distance.

  • Roll the styrofoam ball down the ramp and record the distance.

  • Repeat step 6 two more times and record the distance.


Rolling away

Results

To determine the average distance traveled for each ball, we added the total distance for all three trials and then divided the total by three.

Conclusion

  • In our hypothesis the majority of the class (20 students) predicted that the metal ball would roll the farthest and they were correct. The 4 students that voted that the wooden ball would go the farthest were incorrect.

  • All three balls have the same shape yet their mass is different. The styrofoam ball had the least amount of mass, and the metal ball had the most amount of mass.


Rolling away

Conclusion

  • We concluded that the metal ball went the farthest because its mass was the heaviest out of the three balls.
