The effect that wind has on a baseball game
Transcript of The effect that wind has on a baseball game
Data from behind the baseball
Open indoor area, such as a gymnasium
1.Mark a spot on one end of the room to indicate where you will stand to throw the baseball.
2.Stand on the spot and throw the ball toward the opposite end of the room.
3.Measure the distance the ball traveled.
4.Turn the fan on low and position it so that the air is behind the ball and traveling in the same direction as the throw.
5.Use an equal amount of force to throw the ball again and record the distance.
6.Repeat the throw with the fan on high.
7.Position the fan so that it is in front of the ball and blowing in the opposite direction of the throw.
8.Complete one throw with the fan on low and one throw with the fan on high.
9.Compare the distances that the ball traveled without the fan, with the fan blowing in the direction of the throw and with the fan blowing against the direction of the throw.
10Compare the distances of the ball when the fan was set to low and to high.
I think with the wind blowing the ball in the same direction its going it will be faster and if the wind blows from the opposite direction it will slow down
Data from in front of the baseball
i state in my hypothesis that the wind blowing the ball in the same direction that it is going it be faster and with the wind blowing the opposite direction it will slow down. after testing my my experiment my hypothesis was correct
