To investigate a free-falling cone.
- Independent Variables:
- Mass of the cone: I will change the mass of the cone and observe how this affects the time that the cone takes to reach the ground.
- Dependent Variables:
- Time: The time taken for the cone to freefall to the ground will depend on the mass of the cone.
- Controlled Variable:
- Material: The cone will be made of filter paper because filter paper is already in the shape of a circle and hence very easy to fold into a cone. I will use the same cone throughout my experiment to ensure reliable results.
- Height of release: I will release the cone at a height of 1.5 meters.
