Friction Face Off!

Physics and Astronomy

Jennifer Johnson

In "Friction Face Off!" our class wanted to learn on which surface Beyblades would spin the longest. We had been learning about friction in class and how different surfaces can slow down or speed up objects and wanted to know friction's impact on Beyblades for future "battles". We brought in multiple Beyblades, voted on which tip to use: pointed or flat; then chose our test surfaces of: tile, carpet, wood, cardboard and aluminum tray. We found the pointed tipped Beyblade spun fastest with the fastest average time on an aluminum tray.
