(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

We have to do a project on finding out the relationship of velocity of the impact to crater depth by experimental methods, then we are supposed to find out the answer on the internet and compare it with out experimental results. However, i couldn't find any website that wrote down any relationship between impact velocity and crater depth

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, i did it experimentally. Also, i guess the impact is to do with the kinetic energy:

E=0.5mv^2

therefore i think a square relationship with the velocity should be expected.

however for my experiment i found an equation that is something like y=0.003x^2. I think that may be wrong...

Thank You Very Much
