Big Question My big question was which ball will go the highest. Soccer ball (kick, throw) Football (kick, throw) Tennis ball (throw) The reason I did this experiment was because I wanted to know if weight would effect how high a ball goes.
Hypothesis My hypothesis is that the soccer ball will go the highest. I chose this because a soccer ball is meant to be kicked.
Facts #1. Soccer is called football in other countries besides America. #2. Major League Soccer set all-times attendance record for a United States- based professional soccer league game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on June 16, 1996. That day, 92,216 fans watched the Los Angeles Galaxy win a 3-2 shootout victory over the Tampa Bay Mutiny. #3. His real name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, But the soccer world knows him as Pele. A native of Brazil, Pele retired as a player in 1977 but is still considered by many the greatest soccer player who ever lived. Since his retirement, he has been a worldwide ambassador for his sport. Wherever soccer is played, the name of Pele will always be magic. #4. A standard soccer ball is made of leather and is between 27 and 28 inches in circumference. Unlike basketball, young players can use a smaller ball. For kids 8 years old or younger, a ball of 23 to 24 inches in circumference is recommended. For kids 9 to 12, a ball of 25 to 26 inches is often used.
More Facts · Soccer originated generally in its present form in Britain. · Worlds oldest club formed in 1857 is Sheffield FC · Soccer is the most played and most watched sport on Earth · Soccer is called football in practically every country except America, who call 'Grid Iron' football and football soccer. · Famous soccer rivalries include the Old Firm (Scotland), Manchester derby, London derbies, Milan derby, Real vs Barcelona, and many more. · Some famous soccer players: Pele, Maradonna, Charlton, Eusebio, Cruyff, Dalglish, Ronaldo, Beckham, Mattheus.
Experiment Step 1 : get items “soccer ball, football, tennis ball”. Step 2 : measure how high the house is. Step 3 : kick soccer ball and see how high the ball goes (refer to the house). Step 4 : repeat 3 times to get average. Step 5 : do again with football. Step 6 : throw soccer ball and see how high it goes (refer to the house) Step 7 : repeat 3 times to get average. Step 8 : do again with football and tennis ball
Control & Variables There was no control control was. The variables: soccer ball (kick, throw) football (kick, throw) tennis ball (kick, throw)
Observations #1 : The heaviest ball (soccer ball) traveled less height. #2 : The lightest ball (tennis ball) traveled the most height. #3 : The medium weight ball (football) traveled medium height to the tennis ball. #4 : More force caused the balls to go higher.
Analysis The Tennis Ball went the highest because of its lightest weight. The medium angle achieved the maximum distance. The Soccer Ball went the least distance because of the highest weight.
Conclusion My hypothesis was incorrect. I would change the football to a basket ball and I would change the height to distance. My new question are: in distance would weigh matter and does it matter from what angle you kick.
