3 Washers        

  1. Write a hypothesis for both parts of this experiment.

  2. How does the force of the moving object (type of ball) affect the distance traveled by the cup?

  3. How does the mass of the object at rest (box or cup) affect how far it travels when hit by the metal ball?

  4. Describe the relationship between force (mass of ball) and the distance the box or cup moved. Describe the relationship
    between the mass of the box or cup, and the distance the box or cup moved. Do you agree with Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion?

  5. Did your results support your hypothesis? Explain.
