Introduction

INVESTIGATION ON CRATERS.

Aim

My aim is to try to find out that how much a marble (crater) would make a width and depth. And from different heights, and we are trying to find out that how much impact well it have on the sand and the effect.

Prediction  

I think that how much higher you go you will get a deeper depth. And I think that the width is going to be the same, because the marble is being used the same one and being used in every experiment. And I think that the depth is going to be big and the marble is going to go faster if you throw it from a longer height. And it’s going to be slower if the marble’s height is smaller.

And I think that how much higher you go, you well get a deeper depth.

Method

What I did was that I worked with a partner. What we did was that we got some sand and we added some water to make it softer, then got the basin and we added the sand into it. Then we set up the measuring apparatus, by first getting the clamp stand, and clamping the meter ruler. Then we got the marble and we then threw it from the first height. Then we took a smaller and we took the wood and laid it over the depth that the marble made before.  Then we took some string and we carefully put the string into the depth that the marble had made.  Then we marked the string and then we measured it.  Then we measured the width, but this time we measured along.  Then we carried along and threw each height, at a stage what was between 200mm.

CONCLUSION

What I found out that how much higher you throw the marble the deeper depth you get and some times the same length. I was wrong about the length was going to the same. I can see a pattern that every 200m you go up that it only rises about 20-30mm. And how high you throw you throw the length well be bigger.

Improvements

I could have improved my investigation by using more marbles. And using a bigger ruler to measure the height. And by using a bigger marble and more sand. And by experimenting by rocks or a brick. And I could of improved by having more sand and using more marbles. And I could of used a bigger basin so I could of put some more sand.
