The Effect the Surface type has on Bouncy Ball's Bounce

Erica, Ryan, Sharanya Section 8-5

Objective: Measure the return height of the bouncy ball, based on the surface it is dropped on.

Materials: Standard medium size solid rubber bouncy ball, Meter stick, 8 surface types, standard lab table surface, 3-ply dinner size napkin, 2-ply bounty brand paper towel, 1-ply commercial grade paper towel, gallon size plastic Ziploc baggie, 2-layered cardboard, 8.5x11 standard printer paper, aluminum foil.

Slide 2 (Erica) = Our objective as to measure the return height of the bouncy ball, based on the surface it is dropped on. Slide 3(Erica) = the materials that we used were Standard medium size solid rubber bouncy ball

Meter stick

8 surface types

standard lab table

3-ply dinner size napkin

2-ply bounty brand paper towel

1-ply commercial grade paper towel

gallon size plastic Ziploc baggie

2-layered cardboard

8.5x11 standard printer paper

aluminum foil

Slide 4 (Erica) = our prediction for the return heights was from least to greatest height was 2-layered cardboard,gallon size plastic Ziploc baggie,3-ply dinner size napkin,Aluminum foil,2-ply bounty brand paper towel,8.5x11 standard printer paper,1-ply commercial grade paper towel,standard lab table.

SLide 5 (SD) = This is our data table where we recorded all of the different materials, the the three different bounce back heights from each material, and the average bounce back height of that material along with a picture of that given material.

Slide 6 (SD) = To keep our comparisons precise, we kept the gravitational potential energy the same each time by dropping the bouncy ball from 50 cm. When falling, the bouncy ball had a rate of acceleration of 9.8 m/s, the same rate as any object falling on earth.

Slide 7 (SD) The standard lab table had the greatest average bounce of 31 centimeters. The paper tied the table for the greatest average bounce of 31 centimeters. The gallon size plastic Ziploc baggie had the 3rd greatest average bounce of 30.67 centimeters. The commercial grade paper towels tied the bag for the 3rd greatest average bounce of 30.67 centimeters.The aluminium foil had the 5th greatest average bounce of 29.67 centimeters.The Bounty paper towel had the 6th greatest average bounce of 27.67 centimeters.The napkin had the 7th greatest average bounce of 21 centimeters The cardboard had the least average bounce of 19 centimeters.

Slide 8 (Ryan) = The results of our prediction were pretty good. We got 5 out of 8 surface types in the correct order. We underestimated the bounce of the gallon size plastic Ziploc baggie and the 8.5x11 standard printer paper, but we overestimated the bounce of the 2-ply bounty brand paper towel. Slide 9 (Ryan) = Qualitative data is data showed by numbers rather than letters. That makes quantitative data data showed by numbers. The 2-layered cardboard had the least bounce average of 19 centimeters whereas the standard lab table had the greatest bounce average of 31. Slide 10 (Ryan) = Based on our results, we can conclude that the material the bouncy ball bounces on can greatly affect the return of the given ball. The cardboard had the lowest average return height and we can make a reasonable theory that this occurred because the cardboard absorbed the energy from the bouncy ball. This was different from the lab table as the table is very firm and hard, so the bouncy ball retained almost all of its energy which let it have a relatively high bounce back. The reason the ball did not bounce back to the height it was dropped from is because of thermal energy / air resistance which slowed the ball down while it was falling.
