Rolling Rolling Rolling Problem: Does the height of the ramp affect the distance a car travels?

If we roll a toy car down ramps of different
Rolling Rolling Rolling HYPOTHESIS If we roll a toy car down ramps of different heights and measure the distance it rolls, then we think the car on the highest ramp will roll the furthest distance.

1 15 HYPOTHESIS The Vote Rolling Rolling 8 reading books ramp
12 reading books ramp 1 15

Variables Rolling Rolling Rolling
Independent Variable- The element that we changed: The height of the ramp by adding more books. Dependent Variable- The element that was changed by adding more books: The distance the car rolled.

Materials Rolling Rolling Rolling Rolling Rolling Rolling
1. Reading books for ramp 2. A toy car 3. Centimeter tape measure Rolling Rolling Rolling

Procedure Rolling Rolling Rolling With eight books build a ramp.
Roll car down the ramp. Measure and record distance. Repeat for a total of 5 trials. 5. Build a 10 book high ramp and repeat steps 2 – 4. 6. Build a 12 book high ramp and repeat steps 2 – 4.

Force & Motion, Clint Twist, 2006, Bearport Publishing Company This colorful book discusses force, motion, pushing and pulling. It explains why it takes less force to move something down a slope. Force and Motion, 2003, Delta Education This book describes force, motion, energy, and work. It gives examples of all simple machines and pictures of these machines at work in our everyday life.

Lots of activities about forces and simple machines are included. Check it out!

Conclusion Rolling Rolling Rolling
We noticed that the more books we added to the ramp, the further the car traveled. The majority of the class predicted in the hypothesis that the twelve book ramp would travel the farthest distance. The fifteen students who voted for the twelve book ramp were correct. A ramp is an inclined plane, a simple machine , a tool that uses force to make work easier. We believe that the raised height did some of the work and made it easier for the car to move and move farther.
