Apple Schmear

Experiment: We batted at apples with a tennis racket , baseball bat, and golf club to determine which instrument would cause the most destruction to the apple


Hypothesis: We predicted that the baseball bat would cause the most damage to the apple and the tennis racket the least.


Materials: For this experiment we used 12 apples, a tennis racket, a baseball bat, and a golf club.


Results: Our prediction that the baseball bet would cause the most damage to the apple turned out to be false. Although the bat did a lot of damage to the apple, the golf club completely destroyed it. We were correct however when we said that the tennis racket would cause the least amount of damage to the apple, it merely broke the apple into chunks.
