Experiment Title: Bouncing mini soccer ball
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 high a non-bouncy ball would bounce.
What was your hypothesis?: That the ball would bounce back up a quarter of the distance it had before.
What materials did you use in your experiment? List them all.: Mini soccer ball, Measuring tape.
What procedure was followed? Provide a brief description of the steps you followed during your experiment.: I dropped the ball from 5. 4 and observed how high it came up again.
What were the results of your experiment?: The ball went a bit to high, 1. 8.
What is your conclusion after conducting the experiment? Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect?: My hypothesis was wrong, but it was really close, and it does come up about a quarter high.
Spend a few minutes learning about the scientific principles involved in your experiment. Write 3-4 sentences about what you learned and how it relates to your experiment.: The ball came up a quarter. Gravity made it so that it would not keep bouncing forever and forever. However, that is exactly what it would do in zero-gravity.
