In this experiment a basketball was used because of its size and was used in a controlled environment. For two of the out of the three trials in the experiment a freezer and refrigerator were used to cool the ball the temperatures. For one of the trials the ball was heated with a heater, the temperature for the heated ball was 111. The basketball was measured by a measuring tape that went by inches. The data chart found that the heated ball was the one that bounced the highest and the freezing ball was the lowest temperature bounce. The three variables of this experiment was independent, dependent, and control. The independent was the temperature of the basketball. The dependent was the height of the bounce. Finally, the control was the floor surface, the height of the drop and the basketball room temperature. The tools that the experiment needed was the thermometer to check the temperature of
In our Penny Lab, we wanted to extend what we were told to do with experimental design. We’re doing this because we wanted to prove what he thought our hypothesis had been, and a hypothesis can not be true unless it can be tested. We investigated what variables made the Penny Lab easier, or harder. As a class we decided to investigate variables like, dropping the penny from the same height, and applying the same pressure to the penny for each drop. But first we had to know what variables were, and which variables we needed to use in the experiment. The variables were, the independent variable, dependent variable, the experimental group, and the control group. We investigated this to show how much water a penny could hold, but we introduced
Paper Airplanes Project Design Plan: * I want to know what type of paper airplane model will fly the farthest. I believe airplane design is very important when trying to see how far a paper airplane will fly. The different shape and narrowness

People of the Road The term “driver” can be applied to just about anyone that is behind the wheel of an automobile. Driving is a task that many people take part in on a daily basis. After driving for a while, one can start to discover the several types of drivers
Lab 1 – Introduction to Science Exercise 1: The Scientific Method Dissolved oxygen is oxygen that is trapped in a fluid, such as water. Since many living organisms require oxygen to survive, it is a necessary component of water systems such as streams, lakes, and rivers in order to support aquatic life.
Fig.2.1: Experimental results for cognitive distraction  III. Factors affecting Driver performance and Accident Hazard Many levels of driver distraction are there depending on how it influences and impacts on the driver performance and accident hazard in different possible manners. Driving performance depends on various interrelated factors: ability of the user, experience of the user, driving task complexity, design and the activities with in-vehicle technologies. Performance of driving are defined in terms of following three measures:
First off, you must always be aware of your surroundings. Of course, this is common knowledge, but you would be surprised how much a dancing man in a taco costume on the side of the road can distract a driver, especially a good dancer. In other words, the driver must keep their eyes on the road. The driver should try to keep their main focus on where they are going. Of course, keeping your eyes on the road is an important goal to have, but you should also be aware of the other drivers around you. For this, I frequently check my side an rearview mirrors, as well as cars turning onto the street I am on and the car next to me.
The purpose of this lab was to find out how the amount of time that has elapsed affect the position of the car away from the point of origin. Our hypothesis was if the time elapsed is longer, then the car is going to be further away from the point of origin. In this lab the independent variable-what you are changing is time. The dependent variable-what you are measuring is how far the car is from the point of origin after a certain amount of time (3 seconds, 6 seconds, and 9 seconds). The controls-things that stay the same throughout the whole lab is the car we used, the meter stick that we measured in centimeters with, and the 40 centimeters of tape that we used to mark the position of the car. Materials we used was a car, 40 centimeters of
With that said, the majority of drivers are not well-educated on the intricacies of human attention. As a result, drivers act on the innate need to respond in what seems like an appropriate fashion to the object that gained their bottom-up attention. A 1999 research study on human decision-making (dubbed the “chocolate cake” experiment for one of the food choices presented to subjects) found that people are more likely to make poor decisions when their brains are overwhelmed (Richter, 219). Drivers suffer sensory overload from having to focus on the road in front of them and by the sounds of their mobile phones, as well as hearing any passengers also in
Data from the intersection, including number of previous crashes, sight distance, number of left turning lanes, number of opposing through lanes, and speed limit, were collected. Other collected data included the volume of left turning vehicles during peak hour, the volume of through and right turning vehicles in the opposing
A T- intersection performance can be affected by the gap acceptance behavior of drivers. There have been a lot of studies conducted on the age differences and gender differences in gap acceptance behavior under several conditions but no research was carried out on difference in gap acceptance behavior between genders at different light conditions(daytime and nighttime). The data was collected at a T - section in College Station, Texas. A high definition video camera was used for data collection. The data collection could be done easily during the daytime by video recording and a stopwatch was used for measuring the gap acceptance or rejection through the video. The nighttime data collection was difficult because the camera could not capture
When driving, sometimes it is difficult to focus on the road which makes it easy to forget that the roads are shared by everyone and not for your exclusive use.
