Transcript of Does the Bounciness of a Golf Ball Effect the Distance it wi

By Karen Yao
Does the Bounciness of a Golf Ball Effect the Distance it will Travel?
About This Experiment
My Independent Variable
(what I will change)
I will change the type of golf balls-bouncy, medium and not bouncy.
Data/Results
My Hypothesis
My Procedure
The steps I am going to follow is to first get nine golf balls than I am going to the golf balls according to the bounciness of it (the bounciest balls are #1 the medium balls are #2 the not bouncy balls are #3).The golfers will hit the balls- everyone will get to hit every kind of balls. Balls with the same bounciness's measurements will be averaged. The measurements will be compared.
Materials
The things I need are nine balls, three golfers, a golf club, measuring tools and something to mark the place where the ball landed.
Constants
(what I will keep the same)
I will keep the skill of the golfer, the wind, and conditions in which the golfers hit the balls and the clubs they hit it with the same.
Dependent Variable
(what I measure)
I will measure how far each golf ball goes.
I think that the bouncier balls will travel farther than less bouncier ones because when you hit the ball I think the bouncy balls will bounce off the club and travel farther.
Conclusions
I learned that the bouncy balls are able to travel farther than the less bouncy balls. Though the reason that had happened was because the bouncier balls bounced more and traveled a greater distance with each bounce than the less bouncy balls did.

This experiment is done to find out if relatively softer or bouncier golf balls are able to travel further than the less bouncier ones.
