Laboratory Report Flying High Chris Conklin February 7 2001 OBJECTIVE To build and fly paper airplanes so that you can practice calculating speed and distance as well as learn a bit about designing an airplane BACKGROUND Before beginning this activity I already had my plane pattern in my mind I knew that my design would be basic but effective in achieving maximum distance This activity relates to our studies because it requires us to apply the scientific method and of change in position MATERIALS The materials that were required to make this activity possible were a follows sheets of paper of various sizes and weights a watch with a second hand a meter stick string tape paper clips and a loaded stapler PROCEDURE Everyone in the group designs and constructs a paper airplane The group then selects an airplane to fly in the class contest Next the groups select a flight area recorder timer thrower and a measurer The groups throw several test flights to get a feel for their aircraft then they begin the experiment itself After all the flights have been properly recorded each group member finds the speed of their aircraft by dividing the distance by the air time DATA The speeds recorded for our group were as follows trial 1 10 meters per second mps trial 2 18 mps and trial 3 with 22 mps I noted that the other airplanes were slower than our plane and I can conclude that this is because of their weight and design DISCUSSION I was pleased with the outcome of this experiment and the performance of our aircraft We didnt encounter any major problems
