Is air heavy?


What do I think: No. Am I wrong or am I right? lets see.

  • News paper
  • Ruler (one that you wont mind snapping)

  1. Put the ruler on the edge of the table half on and half off
  2. Karate chop the ruler
  3. It doesn’t break
  4. Next put the ruler on the edge again but this time put a scrunched up piece of news paper on the end that won't be karte chopped.
  5. the paper should fly in the air. Why? It happens because it is not flat so the air can not hold it down.
  6. So then put  a flat piece of newspaper on and karate chop the ruler did it break?

The ruler should have snapped because the air is holding the paper down and forcing it to snap.

Was I right? No.

Science experiment 1: Air exists

This term are topic is on movment and force. This is an expeirment that proves air exists.


  • Container full of water
  • Jar
  • Paper towel

  • Put the paper towel in the jar. Try and keep the paper towel big so it doesn't fall out  
  • Turn the jar upside down and push it to the bottom quickly (If there are bubbles it probably hasn't worked)
  • Quickly pull the jar back up and check the paper towel is dry if it is wet the experiment has failed

Will the paper towel stay dry in the jar or not?

Yes the paper towel will stay dry because it is cushioned by the air

We put the paper towel in the jar and quickly put it in the water.Most of it stayed dry but a tiny bit was sticking out. On our last go it was completely dry.

Yachting and Kayaking day 3

Reflection for
Something I was pleased with was that I was the third kayaker back  because I usually come close to last.
I really enjoyed learning what to do with three people in the boat because I didn’t think you would be able to have that many people at a time.

Something I found hard was paddling in the kayak  because my life jacket was too tight.
Something that made me think was working the tiller because I have never had that job before.
