|Title: Having Fun With Hair Dryers|
|The purpose is to understand the air pressure.|
Hypothesis/Prediction (What I think will happen and why?)
|M: I think that the ball will fall off every time you tilt or move the hair dryer.
K: I think that the ball will lose balance (fall off) at times.
J: I think that the ball will float higher and higher.
|K: The ball did fall off because we couldn’t keep the hair drier still. So the air coming out of the hair drier was moving in a different direction.|
|K: To keep the ball up in the air, the hair drier must be kept in one place.|
One thought on “Ping Pong ball Experiment”
Hi Morgan, I really like the way you have written up this experiment – it makes it very easy to follow – ka pai! I hope you enjoyed carrying out the experiment – I think science is a lot of fun. The results can be surprising and it’s a great way to learn about how the world works.
