Today in class we did the bubble gum lab.
My hypothesis was supported because gum B or Big league chew was the gum that stretched the furthest and was blown the largest.
How does the gum stretchability relate to the bubble size?
- In order for a bubble to be blown, the gum must be very stretchy. The more stretchy the gum is the bigger the bubble size will be.
With your lab partner, list 5 variables that may affect the outcome of this experiment.
- How long ago the gum was chewed.
- The temperature/ moisture of the gum.
- The total mass of the gum
- If both partners participated in the chewing of the gum vs. one partner alone.
- How long the gum was chewed for, ex. 1 minute appose to 4 minutes.
Explain how the data you collected can be described as both qualitative and quantitative.
- Gum B was stretchier then gum A. Gum B was longer then gum A by 2.86cm.
Were SI units used in this lab? explain.
- Yes, I used Cm to measure the diameter of the bubble, And Cm qualifies as SI units.
