science project posted by Liv

It’s raining, it’s pouring!
This week’s science experiment was wet, and rainy. The supplies were quite easy, two almost exactly the same t-shirts and… [Drum roll please,] rain?
The question is whether walking in the rain gets you less wet than running. I believe it is true because when you run you are in a hunched position and you have more surface area exposed to the rain. When you walk you are upright and less area is exposed. When Luke did the test of running and walking down the driveway, we found that as he ran down the driveway he also ran into the droplets as well as them hitting his back. Then while he walked, he kind of walked through the water. If you look at the pictures and compare the shirts, the shirt from him running [light grey] is wetter than the walking shirt. Drawing from our results, I conclude that if you’re stuck in the storm, walk and don’t run to shelter
