The Scientific Method for the
Water Bottle Flipping Experiment
Purpose/Our Question: What kind of bottle and how much water will flip the best?
Research: How much weight is needed? How much force is needed to toss the bottle? How will gravity and applied force affect the way the bottle flips?
Hypothesis: We think that a bottle that is normal sized and 1/3 or 1/2 full will flip the best.
Experiment: Students are currently working to flip bottles of different sizes and different volumes to see which one will flip the best.
