Water Resistance Investigation 5BC

In Science, year 5 have been studying forces. In one of our investigations we carried out a fair test investigation to find out the time it took for different shapes of blu tack to fall through a cylinder of water. We found out that the bigger the surface area the shape had, the longer it took to travel to the bottom of the cylinder. We concluded that this was because there was more water resistance pushing against the bigger surface area.
