Fun would best describe my holiday, fun is one of the abbrieviations of FIRE at school.
Over the last two weeks I had got the chance to sleep in at the morning and wake up to my family up and about being noisy and enjoying their holiday. I most thing that I loved to do was spend time with my family having sleep overs with my cousins and friends, I had also played on the playstation and I stayed up a few nights playing warzone with my mates. I really enjoyed this holiday I can’t wait for the longer holiday at the end of the year.
The second thing for Science this week I’ve been learning about the PH Level and i have also been learning about litmus paper and the reactions that it does to different types of liquid hope you enojy !
Yesterday we had attended a trip Motat, at first I had started thinking that the trip was going to be boring but to my suprise it ended off being fun. My personal highlight from Motat was just spending time with my friends and we had got taken up to a room with different experiments and my favourite one was when you hit the stick to the table and then you put it in the water and then it will course basically an e ruption.
Last week Friday we had a fun run from st heliers to mission bay and I was one of the top runners and I think that I may have beaten my time from last year but if I haven’t that’s still good cause I hold the record but the run was about 2.4 K.
This post is about me talking about how to spike and because 2 weeks ago I attended the volleyball tournament and if you would like to learn how to spike probably just try and learn what I listed down.
This week we had $10,000 and we had to spend it and we at least had to have 20 items and I managed to get 22 items hope you enjoy looking at what I wanted.
|Title: Levitating Ball|
|Understanding Air Pressure|
Hypothesis/Prediction (What I think will happen and why?)
|I think that once you place the ball on top of the hairdryer, then you turn it on and make the air come out but not that fast then it should be just floating on top of the hair drier. I think the more you crank up the air pressure the higher the ball will be above the hair drier. But I think you move around with the hairdryer on and the ball will stay at the top of the hairdryer no matter where you walk around.|
|Hair DrierPing Pong Ball|
|Firstly you will need two things which are a hairdryer and a ping pong ball and after doing that you will need to plug in the hair drier into the outlet in your house/school. After plugging it in, hold the ball just on top of the hairdryer and turn it on and the ball will start floating and make some new moves and have fun.|
|L .When the hairdryer had been turned on the ball had floated above it due to the air keeping it up. I also didn’t expect it to still be floating in the air even after we turned the air pressure up.
S . I had seen the ball floating above the hairdryer and it was fun because when I cranked up the pressure I didn’t expect it to still hover over top, it was also exciting because when I was moving the hair dryer the ball was still over the hairdryer but I thought that it was going to fall off
M: When I used the hairdrier and ping pball and we had to start on a low heat so that the ball could kind get the hang of floating in the air. Then you can start turning the heat up and try different speeds. A higher speed made the ball go higher. The change of heat settings made no difference.
|Hope you enjoy this second report and try this out if you have the equipment !
L: The air kept the ball high, even at high speeds, controlling the ball.
S: As L said, I was surprised the ball kept there at the higher speed.
M: A higher speed makes the air stronger but the heat setting made no difference.
During LCS, we were learning about hypotheses and experimenting and this one experiment was great I’ll teach you what we did :
Lighter, Matches/ Stick
Plate any size
Food Color – optional
Marker – optional
My prediction was that the water would start rising but the only thing that I couldn’t tell was why it would rise up.
- First you grab the plate and place it on a flat surface, after doing that you will need to grab your lighter or match/stick.
- After gathering those together you will need a candle and place it on the plate ( if you only have a birthday plate just light the bottom and then place it on the plate ).
- Thirdly, after placing the candle on the plate gently pour some water onto your plate and make sure it’s not too high ( place the water gently because if you do it too fast it may make your birthday candle fall down ).
- This will be the last step for you using your lighter, match/stick, all you will need to do is just to light the top of the candle carefully before you burn your fingers or hand.
- Finally the last step is that you should place the cup over he candle and make sure just sit back and enjoy to see what happens ( if you would like to mark how high the water level went from the start then grab the marker and do it ! )
To my guess I got it right but I just couldn’t explain why it was rising.
What Happened :
When you place the cup over the candle you’ll start to see the fire go out because there is not that much air for the candle to operate so when it goes out the water starts to rise.
For this blog, I did a self portrait this year and I believe that this is better than last year, hope you like what I’ve done if you would like to know I will soon have a set of instruction on how to make a poly line enjoy !
