Create a Design Lab Report

  1. Jan 18, 2010 #1
    A wooden block is clamped at one end so that it projects horizontally from the clamp. A mass is suspended from the block causing it to bend. Investigate one factor that affects the amount of bending.

    I have to 1. Find a research Question
    2. Find a Hypothesis
    3. Identify dependant, independant and controlled variables.
    4. Also deign an experiment to test the hypothesis.

    I have done some work and am thinking about the factor that affects the bending..like extension of spring, and acceleration due to gravity. So with those factors or if you have any better so i can design a lab for it..can you pls help find a research question and hypotheses as well as the variables.
