The bar and marker shared the same relationship with the table and the frame.
The more the frame moved, the greater the amplitude on the seismograph.
While observing the experiment, I noticed that the more vibrations or higher magnitude resulted in a higher amplitude on the seismograph.
The harder the table was being hit, the higher the amplitude rose. I believe the results are accurate because while the experiment was in progress, the frame moved at the same rate as the table.
One person slowly moved the paper past the pen, as the other hit the end of the table.
The first trial represented a medium magnitude movement.
Hypothesis: An increase in the magnitude of vibrations will result in an increase in amplitude of the seismograph.
Materials: clamp, metal bar, piece of string, rubber bands (2), table, pencil, two people Procedure: I laced a piece of paper directly beneath the pen and the clamp stand.
During an experiment you may collect a lot of information, or data.
But that data is not very useful unless it is organized.
