There's a hole in my builder's bucket
Oh no, there’s a hole in the bucket which the builders were carrying water in to mix cement! Which is the best material to fix it?
- Can you use a real bucket (with a hole) and test different plugs? What might you use? How could you measure which is the best material to stop the water from falling out?
- Could you measure the amount of water which goes in and then measure how much passes through the hole?
You could use:
blu-tac, clay, wax, straw, plastic, play-dough.....
Write up your experiment and measure the water using the worksheet attached below.
