Dropping Lab CEE By: Francisco Anorve Perez

Claim: The data suggests that a bigger mass that would give more joules of energy and that when you drop a object ar a greater height and it would give more energy in the sand.


My evidence: suggests that the mass of 0.05kg had the least amount of energy delivered to the sand and the greater amount of energy of 0.35kg had a impact in the sand with the most joules and crater depth. My second variable I was solving was height of dropping masses we used a low mass as our dependent variable and the height as our independent variable. If we had a mass of .45 Kg and a height of one meter given us a deeper crater and a bigger GPE.


My explanation is on how I had to do two testable questions. One was on the amount of masses on the mass dropping the greater amount of masses the biggest the crater would be. My second testable question was trying to prove that a greater height would give more energy in joules. Both of my experiment where a bit perfect but the least amount of height and more amount of the mass would cause the crater have a greater impact and a greater GPE.

"GPE(Y) VS Mass (X)"
Depth of the crater (y) VS GPE
