P6 Science Project

P6 Science Project
 
P6 are just finishing up a science project. Our project is about Galileo and his pendulum. We have three experiments to do. We are investigating if the weight of the pendulum affects the swing. We do this by having a little container attached to a piece of string. We put a different number of marbles in the container each time, we then swing the pendulum and count how many swings there are in thirty seconds. The second thing that we have to find out is whether the length of the string will affect the swing. Finally we need to find out if the angle of the swing affects the swing time. We will record our findings and do some graphs to show our results. Now you will have to wait to find out what our results will be.
