Science project 7

                Science project 7
Week 9.                                  Vortex wings
This week we were split into 3 groups. Group 1 did paper helicopters, group 2 did vortex wings and group 3 did paper parachutes. I had done the vortex wings. I thought mine was weird, it wasn't the way it looked, it wasn't the way it flew, it was the way it landed. It had always landed on the side of the vortex wing. I had made 2 vortex wings. The first one I tried was made out of plain white thin paper. The other vortex wings I made was made out of green cardboard, I also had added some decorations on it. I had gone up at a really high point and tested my vortex wings. They had both went really well. I started to think, what force is acting on the vortex wings. Well I thought it was drag because when I tested them they had gone back to me like a boomerang. I started to wonder what would happen if I put a GIANT hole in the middle of the vortex wings. I think it would just go straight down and have no forces acting on the vortex wings. I was also wondering does it go further depending on the wind or does it depend on the vortex wings, who knows? Does it have to be certain material to make it go higher, who knows? I wonder when you go to fly the vortex wings, does it have to be on a certain angle. I wonder what's better to use out of paper or card paper, I think it is better to use paper because paper is thinner than cardboard, I also think it's better for thin paper to go through the wind. I had inferred that when I had flew the vortex wings it went back to me (like I said earlier on.) For my data gathering I am at relational because I have explained to you what happened. With my inferring I am at relational because I can infer stuff and connect them together

  1. Well done Anne you have used some very scientific words and I really like the language you used.
