Pendulum Experiment Wild Guess: What time will it take for a 6 m pendulum to swing back and forth 1 time? Variables: independent variable: identify and list dependent variable: identify and list controlled variable: identify and list Research Question: (what are you investigating) Based on your variables, write a research question
Pendulum Experiment • Hypothesis: (what do you intelligently expect to happen) • sketch in graph form (think about one set-up, then think doubling and tripling the length) • in words “As the length of the pendulum increases, the time of a swing__________”
Method What are some factors that might affect the time? How will we get the length? How will we get the time for one swing?
Method • Drawing Must Capture • Experimental set-up • How will you change the independent variables • How will you control the controlled variables In words: Explain how you will set up this experiment
