"indiv project-does it make difference in how fast a person unwinds while sitting on a wound up swing if body in or splayed out? Also, does the body weight of the person spinning matter in spin time?"

One thought on “Spinning Swings

  1. Very interesting questions and observations! I like that you had several participants and several trials. It made for seeing patterns in your data much more clearly. Do you think your conclusions are applicable in the world beyond swings? I hope you learned a bit about controlling your spinning speed. Keep questioning and testing!
