Abstract and Bibliography
The purpose of my hypothesis is to ask a question in which i have to answer with facts. My procedure is to tell you to be in a neat area and gather all your materials. Also its to help you do your task step by step so you don't have to wing it.my results were not supported by my hypothesis, i mean a hypothesis is an educated guess and you perform the experiment to see if it was correct. My conclusion is a summary recap of my experiment and my application is how i can relate this to my life, how i can improve my experiment, and while i was doing this experiment did i have any other questions, which i did.


The purpose of this investigation is to see which one can carry more weight. My hypothesis was incorrect and paper hold more. the findings that i found was when the plastic started to stretch and the paper bag barley did anything. the possible reason for the result is to prove my experiment.
