Is this a good science fair project?
“I determined the coefficient of friction of different basketball shoes. I found the normal force (weight) of each shoe by hanging them from a spring scale. Then each shoe was dragged across a wooden floor, in order to represent a basketball court, at constant speed. This then measured the frictional force of each shoe. ”
i will change it up but is this a good science fair project for 11th grade?
Sounds kindof cool. What if you worked in comparisons of the frictions of different kinds of shoes, like work boots, formal shoes, even bare feet, etc. That would be interesting.
