Jump rope experiment

Postby jennpgold » Mon Feb 25, 2019 8:15 am

Doesn’t the height of the subject impact the results? Can the experiment be done with the length of the rope as a multiple of height instead of the same length for all jumpers? Thank you?

Hello Jenn,
Did you record the height of each of the jumpers? Maybe you could use that data together with your other results to answer your first question? Let us know what you find!

Yes, be sure to consider not only the jump rope height but yours as well, and it may serve you well to have a variety of people testing.
