    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

    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?

        Ice is best

        Yes, the more slipery the surface the better.

    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?

        I’ve you have a pointed nose it would cut throo the air making it faster (a pointed nose makes you more streamline.

    Answers for M I High game
    1. Ice
    2. Cream
    3. Nose Cone
    Also, on the other game, ice is the material that causes the most friction. πŸ˜›

    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 πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

      The ice is very slippy and so is the cream tea, so that causes friction.

        September 27, 2011 at 2:41 pm

        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?

        Why was the ice best?

    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 πŸ™‚ :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?

       
      • Rm Horse lover

        September 27, 2011 at 2:45 pm

        i think i know why is it because the air puts pressure on the parachute which cause the vehicle to get pulled back

      September 27, 2011 at 2:44 pm

      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. πŸ™‚

    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 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.

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