MY QUESTIONWhich of my toy carscan go the furtherest?
Hypothesis• I think my PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS will go the furtherest because it is the biggest of my toy cars and might be the heaviest
Method• I will weigh my toy cars and see what their weights are• I will make a wooden ramp and have it sloped• Slope the ramp at angle• Let each car go down the ramp• Mark how far they go and measure each distance
MATERIALS• TOY CARS:• ASTON MARTIN ONE -77• BUGATI VEYRON• PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS• Metal Ramp *Scales (weight)• Scale monitor• Tape measure
RESULTSWhat I thought was wrongThe ASTON MARTIN ONE-77 WENT THE FURTHEREST (my smallest car)It went 14cm off the ramp and it also went the fastestThe Porsche 911 GT3 RS went the slowest and went the least distanceThe heavier car did not go as far as the lighter ones.The BUGATI and the PORSCHE HAD RUBBER WHEELS but the ASTON MARTIN had plastic wheels. That may be anotherreason why the Aston went the furtherest.
CONCLUSION• Lighter, smaller cars with plastic wheels go further and faster on a metal ramp
WHAT NEXT? I now want to know Will my fastest car (AstonMartin) go further and fasteron a different ramp surface?
