Tittle:Rocks In the Wrong Direction
By:Abby and Hannah
QUESTION: If we put rocks in front of the water flow would the water change direction ?
Hypothesis: We think it will change direction ,because if the water hits the tip of a rock it will move the direction of the flowing water.Hopefully it might still go through the whole.
1. big rocks/gravel
2. 1 liter of water
3. 2 trays
4. stands for height,slop
Set up:We Set up the rocks flat out and had very little holes for water to get through. we then patted the sand and clay together at the top.We also put a bowl at the bottem so it could catch the water.
Data and Results
data: once we poured the water on the tray instead of the rocks clogging the water, the water forced the rocks towards the center. As the water squeezed its way through the edges of the tray into the bowl.
Are answer is no because the rocks didn't change the direction of the water flow. Instead the water changed the direction of the rocks.The water forced the rocks because the water was forced down the stream.
