A Science Fair Project on Meteor Impact Abstract
My topic is meteor impact. I became interested in the impact of meteors when my teacher, Mrs. Zakarian, told me about an experiment. Things went running through my mind lie, “Wow, I will get messy in this experiment.” and “I would like to see how meteors and meteorites impact our moon and Earth. ” “Can meteor size be determined by the length of the rays and the size of the crater?”
My research on meteors and meteorites uncovered that meteorites uncovered that meteors are a piece of matter that’s gets pulled into Earth’s gravitational pull and burns up in the Earth’s atmosphere.
When my investigation started, I filled a roasting pan with flour and cocoa. After I filled the pan, I dropped a golf ball in the pan. Then I measured the length of the crater and rays (the distance in which the debris flies). I did the same thing with large aquarium marbles, plastic marbles, and aquarium pebbles.
When I finished with that AI then looked through all my results and added the length of each ray and the depth of the crater. I discovered tha the gold ball was the object with the largest total, the smallest total of all the aquarium pebbles. The pebble test had a total of 7cm crater and didn’t have a single ray! The golf ball really surprised me! It had an array total of 179cm.
The next question that comes to my mind that I would like to determine is, “Would the height of the distance from the mud impact the size of the crater?”
