  • Parachute Experiment

    592 Words  | 2 Pages

    Parachute Experiment Prediction My prediction is that as the weight of plastercine increases the time taken for the parachute to reach the ground will decrease I think this because when the weight has just been dropped it is going slowly, but as it falls through the air it will gain speed until it reaches its terminal velocity. The weight does not change but the A.R gets bigger until it equals out the downwards force of gravity, so when the weight is larger it will have to fall further

    Pythagoras Experiment Aim: To investigate the relationships between the lengths of the 3 sides of the right angled triangles and the perimeters and areas of these triangles. Task 1: a) The numbers 5, 12, 13 satisfy the condition. 5² + 12² = 13² Because 5² = 5x5 = 25 12² = 12x12 = 144 13² = 13x13 = 169 And so 5² + 12² = 25 + 144 = 169 = 132 b) The Numbers 7, 24, 25 also satisfy the condition. 7² + 24² =25² Because 7² = 7x7 = 49 24² = 24x24 = 576 25²

  • Experiment: A Breaching Experiment

    928 Words  | 2 Pages

    For my breaching experiment, I decided to break the social norm of looking at someone while engaged in conversation with them. Today, it is socially unacceptable and impolite to avoid looking at someone when talking to them. The background assumption for a typical conversation is that direct eye contact will be made more often than not; otherwise social norms are being violated. Avoiding eye contact during an exchange tends to dehumanize the person that is not receiving the eye contact. It is impolite

  • Self Disclosure Experiment

    they can trust. There were two experiments that took place in the study. The first experiment was based on the eye contact and self-disclosure of the experimenter and the subject. The second experiment was the effects of the experimenter’s self-disclosure. On both studies, the purpose was to see how much the subject will self-disclose and respond when the experimenter approach them in a variety of ways (Jourard & Friedman, 1970). The hypothesis for both experiments

    appropriate past studies and chosen those that examine the notions of illusions and beliefs based on concepts of superstitious behaviour, superstition and superstitious rules. Many experiments in this field point at the fact of how causal learning could be distorted by biased beliefs. Langer (1975) has indeed done many experiments and has gone on to define the aspect of ‘illusion of control’. And this, Langer has defined as one that stems from an expectation of personal success probability inappropriately

  • Experiment on Electrical Resistance

    2180 Words  | 5 Pages

    Experiment on Electrical Resistance The electrical resistance of a material is its opposition to the flow of electric current (slowing the flow of electrons down). Resistance occurs when the electrons travelling along the wire collide with the atoms of the wire. These collisions slow down the flow of electrons causing resistance. Resistance is a measure of how hard it is to move the electrons through the wire. A current is the rate of the flow of charge (electrons) and the resistance
