Experiment Title: Action Reaction
What was the purpose of your experiment? Provide a brief description of what you were hoping to learn, discover, or study.: I was hoping to learn how hard it is to do certain things when you do not know when they are going to happen.
What was your hypothesis?: It would be easier to catch the thing that you knew when it was going to happen and it would be harder to catch the thing that you didn’t know when it was coming.
What materials did you use in your experiment? List them all.: notecard, friend.
What procedure was followed? Provide a brief description of the steps you followed during your experiment.: First I dropped the card and tried to catch it. Than, I let August, (friend) drop the card from on top of the couch.
What were the results of your experiment?: It was much easier to drop the card myself and catch it. It was harder for me to catch the August-stand-on-top-of-the-couch-and-drop-it-one.
What is your conclusion after conducting the experiment? Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect? What did you learn?: It is much harder to catch something when you knew it was coming and harder when you did not. My hypothesis was correct. I learned that notecards are hard to catch too. Maybe, next time, I will do it with a ball.
