1 Which type of paper will allow a paper airplane to fly farthest? By: Leslie AlvarezSubject: SciencePeriod: 1
2 ResearchThis Experiment was based on the research of aerodynamics.
3 HypothesisIf I create a paper airplane out of copy paper then, I think it will fly the farthest.
4 Independent and DEPENDENT VARIABLES Independent: Type of paper used.Dependent: Length in inches of how far the paper airplane flies.
5 Controlled (5) Design Paper Size Force of Throw Weight Upon Plane Wind in Surrounding Area
6 Materials and Procedures Copy PaperBoard PaperManila PaperMeasuring StickScissorPenLaptopCameraProcedures……Fold Copy Paper into the design of a nose heavy paper plane.Throw at a 45 degree angle three times and measure length in inches.Find the average of the three trials.Cut Board Paper into same size of copy paper.Fold into nose heavy paper plane.Throw at 45 degree angle and measure length in inches.Find average of all three trials.Cut manila Paper into size of copy paper.Fold into nose heavy plane.Throw at 45 degree angle three times and measure length in inches.Find average of three trials.Take Pictures with my camera of everything done and pass to my laptop to paste on PowerPoint.
10 Problem Statement 2With which type of design will a paper airplane fly farthest?
11 HypothesisIf I design an airplane after the dragon plane , then I think it will fly the farthest.
12 Independent and Dependent Variables Independent: Design of Paper PlaneDependent: Length in inches of how far the paper airplane flies
13 Controlled (5) Type of Paper Used Force of throw Wind surrounding area Weight put upon planeAngle of throw
14 Materials and Procedures Copy PaperLaptopPenMeasuring StickCameraProcedures….Looked up three different types of designFold Copy Paper into Nose Heavy Paper PlaneThrow at 45 degree angle three times and record length flown on data paperFind average flown of all three trials.Fold Copy Paper into Dragon Paper Plane.Throw at 45 degree angle three times and record length flown on data paper.Fold Copy Paper into Cobra Paper Plane.Take pictures with my camera of everything done.
16 ConclusionAfter three trials of testing with three different types of design I came to the conclusion that the dragon airplane flies best, thus proving my hypothesis incorrect.
17 Problem Statement 3Will a Paper airplane fly farther with one, two or three quarters of weight put upon them?
18 HypothesisIf tape three quarters on top of the paper airplane ,then I think the plane will fly the farthest.
19 Independent and Dependent Variables Independent: Weight using amount o quarters put upon planesDependent: Length The airplane flies.
