    mass of the ball (m) will remain constant. As the air resistance force (F) increases to the resultant force (mg), the acceleration of the ball (a) decreases to nothing, so the ball continues at its previous velocity without accelerating. Above a certain height, therefore, I do not believe that the height from which it is dropped will affect the height of a ball's bounce. However, below this height, where the kinetic energy carried into impact will vary between different drop heights, I believe

  • Investigation of Falling Cake Cases

    Explain Terminal Velocity: I will vary two factors in this experiment to determine their affect on terminal velocity; these will be the drop height and weight. I will record the time taken for a cake case, or a stack of cake cases, to fall from a certain height and record the results. To make sure that I am only recording the time when the object has achieved terminal velocity I will drop the object from 20cm above the height and start timing when it comes past that point.

Due to the views of George Balanchine, it soon became the norm for a dancer to be a certain height and weight. Soon that is what company producers, directors, choreographers, and the public expected. Even today, “an ideal has been set in place in the dance community which reflects the general public’s desire to see thin women on stage” (10-6)

Method: Firstly, I made a whirlybird model and timed how long it took to reach the floor from a certain height. This procedure was repeated several times, each time lessening the wing length and keeping the same height. For each wing length, the bird was dropped three times for maximum accuracy. Once this data was collected it was transferred

    Investigating the Bounce of a Tennis Ball after It Has Been Dropped From Certain Height Aim To investigate how high a tennis ball will bounce back after it has been dropped from a certain height How a Tennis Ball Bounces As the ball is elevated the ball gains gravitational potential energy equal to the ball's weight multiplied by its change in height1. When the ball is dropped, the height decreases, and therefore so does the gravitational potential energy. At the same time, the velocity

    Slant and use of charged language is essential when it comes to effectively writing an opinionated piece while still avoiding shoving it into the reader's face.

    Many steps were taken in order to narrow down and figure out which bacterium unknown 413 is. One of the first step taken in identifying unknown 413 was to do a gram stain. The gram stain, which was purple, resulted in gram-positive cocci. The gram-positive eliminated all the possibilities of unknown 413 being any gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis etc. The cocci morphology result eliminated any possibilities of it being any bacteria that are a rod. This left five
