The Effect of Exercise on How Fast you can squeeze your clot
Transcript of The Effect of Exercise on How Fast you can squeeze your clot
Independent Variable: Exercise
Dependent Variable:How fast you can squeeze your clothespin in a minute
Controlled Variable(s): How long you exercise, type of exercise, and amount of rest time.
1. Gather your human subjects and your materials
2.Allow them to rest for the same amount of time in the same position. (1 minute)
3.After 1 minute, instruct your subjects to set there timer to a minute. When the timer starts the subjects will start squeezing the clothespin while simultaneously counting the number of times they have squeezed the clothespin.
4.Record the number times you have squeezed the clothespin into the data table.
5.Rest for 2 minutes and then repeat process (steps 2-4) for 2 more trials.
6.After the 3 trials allow them to rest 3 minutes then instruct them to do the same exercise for one minute.
7. Repeat step 3
8. Allow them to rest for the same amount of time in the same position. (1 minute) Repeat for 2 times and record in data table.
My data analysis shows that most of the human subjects were able to squeeze the clothespin more times.if they exercised first.
In Conclusion, the data shows that a person will be able to squeeze a clothespin more times in a minute if the student exercises first. Therefore, disproving my hypothesis, in the data I have represented the number of times the clothespin was squeezed was always higher for the one who exercised. Also comparing the mean median and mode the numbers of times the clothespins was squeezed were also higher for the people that exercised. An possibility that we should all include in our head is the fact that the data we have gathered may be incorrect because all of the different factors of the human subjects that we did not consider, for example diet, health, genes, amount of sleep, etc
Question: Does exercise effect how fast you can squeeze your clothespin in a minute.
Hypothesis: a person will be able to squeeze a clothespin more times in a minute, if the person does not exercise first.
Clothespins ( 1 for each subject)
at least 30 subjects
a timer for each subject.
Suggestions For Improvement:
There are many ways we can improve this experiment, one way we can improve this experiment is the rate that we are exercising at and the accuracy of the exercise they are performing. For example, if we were doing pushups some of us may be slacking off because we are not able to do pushups while others are working harder then others because they can do pushups. Therefore using more energy then others, so we should control the rate that everyone is exercising at. Other variables that we should take in is the fact of how others can be more in shape then others and the different diet everyone consumes. The third variable we should consider is the fact that between every trial we did not switch to a new clothespin so after every round the clothespin may have become easier to squeeze, therefore throwing off the data and making it inaccurate.
Suggestions for Further Research:
Other investigations that we can do that is still related to the topic of the rate of clothespin squeezing is:
Does your diet affect the rate of squeezing the clothespin?
Does Lactic acid help reduce muscle fatigue?
Does the race of people affect the squeeze rates?
Does different types of clothespins affect the squeeze rates?
