Transcript of What air plane shape would fly the farthest ?

PROCEDURES 1.Make three different kinds of paper airplanes with copy paper.(Standard, Fast, or Delta Wing) January 11, 2013 COPY PAPER MATERIALS S.T.E.M THE FLIGHT OF A PAPER AIR PLANE NYA WHITE MRS.REYNOLDS 6 MOD 3 NOVEMBER 19,2012 WHAT PAPER AIRPLANE SHAPE WOULD FLY THE FARTHEST ? HYPOTHESIS I think the standard plane would fly the farthest because the standard plane has a long wingspan and more air is pushed under the wings, so the air is lifting the paper plane up. . TAPE MEASURE . 2.Throw each paper plane one one-by-one, but between each throw ,measure how far the paper plane has went. 3. Write my data down between each throw on how far the paper plane went. 4.Put my data on my data table, mark it on my bar graph.Look over my data and see which paper plane flew the farthest. VARIABLES Independent Variable :The shape of the paper airplane Dependent Variables :How far the paper airplane will fly. Controlled Variables : The size of paper used.
The same material used for each paper plane. 5.Repeat the steps 2 through 4 for a second and third test. Fold a standard piece of printer paper (typically 8.5 by 11 inches) in half vertically and crease. Open up the paper so that the crease is vertical and fold the top two outer corners inwards so that they meet along the middle crease. Fold the point made in the previous step down to the crease so that the flaps are tucked under this fold. Now the paper should look somewhat like the back of an envelope. Fold the two top corners created in the previous step to the center crease so that the points are about 2/3 of the way down the center crease flap. Fold up the point that has been covered in the previous step so that it secures the flaps against the crease. Fold the paper in half (along the vertical crease you created in Step 1) so that all the folds made in the previous steps are facing outwards. The small triangular fold is now along what will later be the bottom of the plane. Fold both side flaps down to the bottom so that the wings are perfectly aligned with the bottom of the airplane. Unfold the wings slightly so that they are perpendicular to the body of the airplane and form a flat surface next to each other. Test fly your airplane. Start with a gentle toss to see how your plane glides through the air. Experiment with more aggressive throws to see how high and far your plane will travel. Fold the paper horizontally and vertically. Fold two triangles at the top. Fold another two triangles at the top. Fold the bottom small triangle up. Fold the airplane in half. Fold the two halves to make wings. Finished. Get a standard piece of copy paper. Use letter size (8.5 inches by 11 inches) or A4 paper. Crease the paper to locate the center. Fold and unfold the paper vertically and horizontally to form the creases. They should bisect exactly in the center of the paper. Orient the page width-wise, or hamburger-style. Fold the two top corners down until they touch at the vertical crease, leaving a flat horizontal line at the top of the paper. Fold the top of the paper down to the center of the paper. It should line up exactly with the horizontal crease running through the paper. Fold down the top corners to meet at the vertical crease, this time leaving a point at the top. Fold the paper in half along the vertical crease. You should end up with a triangle shape. Draw a line 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) from the center fold. Fold each wing down along the line you just drew. The body of the plane should be vertical, and the wings should be horizontal at a 90 degree angle. Finished. Standard Question Fast 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 1. 2. 3. 4. 9.

Trial 1 TRIAL 2 Trial 2 Trial 3 Data Table Charts Delta Wing Conclusion My hypothesis was correct , the standard paper plane went farther in all three trials . In my first trial, the standard plane went 120 in. far , while the others went 88 or 69 inches far. In the second trial , the standard plane went 155 in. far , and the others only went 87 or 71 inches far . Finally, in my last / third trial, the standard plane went 149 in. far , the fast and delta wing plane went 82 or 76 inches far. Winner !
