Ms. O’ Sullivan’s class investigated Friction and the effect that it has on the speed that Toy cars travel down a ramp. Check out their investigation.

We tested the car traveling

  • Low Friction
  • High Friction
  • Low Friction with Ramp
  • High Friction with Ramp


When the car travelled down the low friction surface with a ramp it travelled the longest distance.

When the car travelled down the high friction surface (no ramp) it travelled the shortest distance.
