Balloon Powered Car Wheel Type Challenge

My project is about wheel types and travel distance. I chose this project because I wanted to learn about wheel powered cars. My overall conclusion was a little undetermined. My project is important because wheel size affects traction which determines speed.

One thought on “Balloon Powered Car Wheel Type Challenge

  1. Great experiment for introduction to physics. Friction is important to get a car moving, but also can cause it to slow down. It looks as though you learned how the construction may impact results! It is always good to have the majority of what can be controlled, controlled. Even if our hypethesis didn’t match the results, we can learn from that! Engineering is an iterative process for that very reason! Great job!
