I used Ice, Cream tea and the Nose cone. I used these surfaces becauses they were a lot smoother than all the other surfaces.

I used the same materials, look at the dinky arrow and if it’s small it is a good material

The MI High games are fun
I used the nosecone to make my veicle more streamline because the paruchute woulod pull the air back and stop you from going fast.

What about the surface, did that effect the speed you travelled?
September 27, 2011 at 2:36 pm
Ice is best
September 27, 2011 at 2:41 pm
Yes, the more slipery the surface the better.
we uesed cream to go faster on the road.

We said that the ice is the best because it was slipy and that it would have the least amount of friction.

Great answer. How does the shape of your vehicle effect the speed it travels?
September 27, 2011 at 2:45 pm
I’ve you have a pointed nose it would cut throo the air making it faster (a pointed nose makes you more streamline.
Try walking on it.
Answers for M I High game
3. Nose Cone
Also, on the other game, ice is the material that causes the most friction. 😛

The first anwser was ice because it was the smoothest surface. The second was cream because it was slippery. The last was the nose because it was streamlined!:)
Why is a smooth surface good? How does it change the speed you travel at?
Because the ruffness of the suface pulls on the vehicle
We found that the nose cone was the Best because it was more streemline and caused less drag 🙂 😉

The ice is very slippy and so is the cream tea, so that causes friction.
Rufus, is it causing friction? OR is it that it has less friction?
I diddnt die on any of the challenges on MIHigh.Also i watch MIHigh on TV.
why didn’t you die? What science did you use to help you?

MR.cobb i Just used the ice

Why was the ice best?
Rm Horse lover
On the first one we used the ice because it is a slippy surface so the car would go quicker.
On the second on we used the cream because it would be slippy.
and on the third one i used the nose cone and not the parachute because the air would push against it which would cause you to get pushed backwards.
I think the nose cone was the best because the wind got pushed over when the nose cone acted as a barrier and I think the muffin and the scarf weapons need to be updated 🙂 :0

I think the ice is the best because the ice is more slippyer and makes most friction
We lovd the game but the parshout made us go slower.
The link is so good.
i tried the paruchute and it pulled my vehicle back but i dont know why.
Does anyone else know why?
i think i know why is it because the air puts pressure on the parachute which cause the vehicle to get pulled back
Its because the wind blew you back.
The parachute was really slow because the air was pressing against it. The carpet was really bad because the friction was so strong. 🙂
it was a good chalenge
why didnt you slip off track when burger granny put cream tea on the track? 🙂 🙂 🙂
why was the stogey cream faster than the normal road
It pulled the vehicle back because the air was pushing against the paruchute pulling the car back with it.

I dont know how a old person scooter could beat a hoover time car thing 🙂
i like the game because the weapon that she uses are so funny. and the best one was the nose cone because the air went over the nose cone to make you go farster.
it was a good game a good chalenge the ice was the best because it was more slidy

I think the ice has the most friction because the ice is the slippery and the carpet had the les friction :):)

when you rub your hands together and they go hot that is fricton
