By: Laura K. My Science Fair Project: How Far Can Sparks Jump? Hypothesis The procedure •Place the conducting spheres on the V- shaped cardboard
with some air in between
•Measure the distance of the air gap
press the button on the fire starter and see if there is a spark
•Repeat that at least 3 times to make sure it is right
•Adjust the gap and repeat the steps above. If there was a spark make the spheres wider apart if there wasn't a spark then make them go closer measure the cm each time (don't forget :D)
•Now you can test it out with paper, foil and plastic (don't have to) Data How many cm: Trial 1: Trial 2: Trial 3: Trial 4:
1cm yes yes yes yes
1.1cm yes yes yes yes
1.2cm yes yes yes yes
1.3cm yes yes yes yes
1.4cm yes yes yes yes
1.5cm no no no no The Problem What is farthest distance a spark can fly if we use a piezoelectric barbecue starter? I think that 3 cm will be the farthest the fire starter can be. The yes and no represent if they have a spark or not Bibliography A thanks to the following websites/companies..........

not 3cm but still I had fun and I learned alot
:D Results The farthest it could fly was 1.4 cm
