SCIENTIFIC METHOD PRACTICE Directions: The following are steps from scientific experiments. Read each one and decide if the step is a QUESTION, HYPOTHESIS, EXPERIMENT OR CONCLUSION.

Does a baseball travel farther than a golfball if hit with the same amount of force? Does a baseball travel farther than a golfball if hit with the same amount of force? Practice #1

PRACTICE #2 When the golfball and baseball were hit with the same amount of force, the golfball traveled 30 meters, while the baseball traveled 25 meters. The golfball traveled 5 meters farther than the baseball. Therefore the golfball will travel farther. When the golfball and baseball were hit with the same amount of force, the golfball traveled 30 meters, while the baseball traveled 25 meters. The golfball traveled 5 meters farther than the baseball. Therefore the golfball will travel farther.

PRACTICE #3 Take ten baseballs and ten golfballs and hit each with 60 pounds of force. Measure how far each ball travels and record your data on a chart.

PRACTICE #4 I think that if a baseball and golf ball are hit with the same force, the baseball will travel farther because it is heavier.

PRACTICE #5 IS IT POSSIBLE TO RAISE A SHIP FROM THE BOTTOM OF A LAKE USING PINGPONG BALLS? IS IT POSSIBLE TO RAISE A SHIP FROM THE BOTTOM OF A LAKE USING PINGPONG BALLS?

PRACTICE #6 Take one thousand ping pong balls and pump them into the boat using air pressure. Observe the boat to see if it begins to rise. If not, continue pumping ping pong balls into the boat until it rises or cannot hold anymore balls. Take one thousand ping pong balls and pump them into the boat using air pressure. Observe the boat to see if it begins to rise. If not, continue pumping ping pong balls into the boat until it rises or cannot hold anymore balls.

PRACTICE #7 CAN A PERSON BE LIFTED OFF THE GROUND BY HELIUM BALLOONS?

PRACTICE #8 I think that if you fill a boat with ping pong balls, you will be able to lift it off the bottom of a lake. I think that if you fill a boat with ping pong balls, you will be able to lift it off the bottom of a lake.

PRACTICE #9 After filling the boat with 5000 ping pong balls, the boat still did not float at all, therefore, ping pong balls cannot be used to raise a boat from the bottom of a lake. After filling the boat with 5000 ping pong balls, the boat still did not float at all, therefore, ping pong balls cannot be used to raise a boat from the bottom of a lake.

PRACTICE #10 Fill helium balloons with helium and tie the strings of the balloons together to make a balloon bouquet. Select people with different masses and have them hold the balloons. Keep giving balloons to people until they either begin to float or cannot hold anymore. Fill helium balloons with helium and tie the strings of the balloons together to make a balloon bouquet. Select people with different masses and have them hold the balloons. Keep giving balloons to people until they either begin to float or cannot hold anymore.

PRACTICE #11 We gave people of different masses as many helium balloons as they could hold and they all failed to be lifted off the ground, therefore, a person cannot be lifted off the ground by helium balloons. We gave people of different masses as many helium balloons as they could hold and they all failed to be lifted off the ground, therefore, a person cannot be lifted off the ground by helium balloons.
