Hi,

I looked in our Project Ideas for an experiment that would help answer your question. Since we don't have one, I turned to Google for more information. I like the explanations given here:

Did this answer your question? Do you plan to make a science project using this background research? Please let me know if you need further help with that.

Hello!

Are you looking for science fair ideas dealing with the relationship between speed and height? After you do some preliminary research (like the previous expert mentioned), I would suggest asking some of your friends to volunteer, gather a group of short kids, average height kids, and a group of tall kids. If at all possible, try and eliminate differences in weight and age, as these are variables that can affect the outcome of the experience.

Good luck with your project!
