Science Friction experiment 


Yesterday you planned and selected the surfaces you were going to test and the object you were going to push along each surface. 

Please copy and fill in the table below with the surfaces that you have chosen. 

Once you have filled in your table with your surfaces, push your object along each one and measure how far your object moved. Which surface did it move the easiest on? Which one did it struggle on? Why do you think this happened? 


Make sure you answer the questions once you have finished your experiment. If you have pictures of yourself conducting the experiment, feel free to send them to your teacher to show them how you did.
