The Magnetic Free Fall ExperimentPhysics, Astronomy, and Mathematics
- Mrs. Alexandria Vaughn
"Project Description: What is your project about? My project is about how will a hollow tube’s interior texture, material, diameter, and thickness affect the falling rate of a magnet dropped through the tube? Why did you choose this project? My mom’s dad works at ASU (Arizona State University) and this was a past experiment that my papa suggested. What was your result/overall conclusion? The tighter the fit the slower the fall, and the smaller magnet falls faster than the bigger magnet. Why is your project important? It could be useful for transportation of items slowly downwards. "
