Experimenting with jelly


Today in science,we did an experiment where we covered jelly in oil and flour to see how quickly we could pass it around our table. We thought about the different variables to try and make the experiment a fair test. What were your results? What did you learn about friction?

    I predicted that the jelly with flour was the quickest and I was right!

    It was really fun because when we did it with the oil because it was so slippery

    I liked the experiment because the day we only had 4 people on the table so we had finished it before every other table

    My average with the jelly with flour was 30.

    The jelly with oil was the slowest because it was really slippy and so were the pencils from touching the jelly with oil.

    I think my quickest time was 28 seconds.

    I predicted that flour would be the quickest because it made the jelly dry and less slippery

    In my opinion, the oil jelly
    and normal jelly tied therefore the normal jelly took too long to get off the plate so there wasn’t much friction but the oil made the jelly too slippery so there wasn’t a promising amount of friction there either . Neave Curtis 5SK

    The jelly with oil on it was creating less friction so it was the most slippery. Tilly 5L0

    The jelly with flour came first because it created less friction therefore it wasn’t as slippery as the oil. Tilly 5L0
