    ..:My Project:..
    Due Date:
    My investigation is about (could be a question you want answered or a problem):
    My project is on to she if a swim cap really effects your speed as your
    swimning and why it does it or doesnt.
    7th November
    My hypothesis is (should be worded as a statement):
    That when using a swim cap it will affect the your speed in the water becuase when using a swim cap it
    will reduce the drag oh your hair causing you to go faster.
    7th November
    My references used to research the question:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swim_cap
    http://www.soloswims.com/shaving.htm
    http://books.google.com/books?http://books.google.com/books?id=yZfUTbFE_AkC&pg=PA284&lpg=PA284&dq=Hair+drag+while+swimming&source=web&ots=SMCZa0vr7M&sig=T8Sak0kEi4ZylwtGBV37E5rw9jQ&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=4&ct=result#PPA284,M1id=cSSW4RhZOiwC&pg=PA63&lpg=PA63&dq=Why+does+hair+cause+drag+in+water&source=web&ots=qjlCdwOU23&sig=bSGhwOFYidlG6gVc4dNAGqymDnQ&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=3&ct=result#PPA63,M1
    http://coachsci.sdsu.edu/swimming/hydro/table.htm* Swim Caps are worn to provent drag in the water to make the swimmer faster.
    Swim caps were started to be used in Competitived Swimming it the early 1980's
    Swim caps were made to reduce the drag in water for swimmers instead of shaving their hair.
    Hair on your body is attached to dead skin cells all over which can absorb water or make it hard for you to swim in water
    By shaving or wearing a swim cap you are enabling more skin cells to fly right off, which then water will moves right past you easier
    If you have alot of haiir then it could make you less aerodynamic.
    Also wearing layers could help reduce drag.
    Some Swimmers could not pull water becuase the hair had a big drag.
    By Shaving body hair or wearing a swim cap your body becomes more hyperdynamic becuase water doesnt get caught in the texture of your body, it just flows right past you as you swim throught the water
    Hairs create drag, and the friction between each hair and the water makes a swimmer have to work harder to move.
    Study provd that shaving body hari or wearing a swim cap does indeed travel futher per stroke then they dis when not wearing a swim cap
    Drag from the water is the primary obstacle for any swimmer
    There are three main types of drag that act on a swimmer: friction, wave, and pressure drag
    Swimmers often attempt to reduce drag by using swim caps, special suits, and shaving prior to competitions
    Shaving is also a very common practice among swimmers, intended to reduce frictional drag
    Frictional drag-is the result of the interaction between the swimmer’s body and the water molecules and serves to slow down the swimmer.
    When swimming through the water, the body will undergo a retarding force due to resistance, or drag
    7th November
    Materials and equipment required to conduct my investigation:
    A group of 4 girls and 4 boys
    A timer
    8 different swim caps
    A place that has a pool
    14th November
    My experimental design (the method you will use to test your hypothesis):
    The effect of Swim cap or no swim cap on Time.
    Purpose: To find if a Swim cap really affect your time in swimming by a big amount or not at all affects it.
    Hypothesis: Wearing a swim cap will affect time of speed becuase it will reduce drag in the water making you go faster

    RProcedure
    1. Swimmer 1 will swim a 50 (2 laps) with wearing a swim cap
    2. Start the timer when Swimmer 1 jumps of starting block and hits water
    3. End Timer when Swimmer 1 touches wall were they started
    4. Record Data In Notebook
    5. Give Swimmer 1 10 minutes to recop
    6. Now Ask Swimmer 1 to swim another 50 without wearing a swim cap
    7. Start Timer when swimmer hits water
    8. End timer when swimmer 1 touches wall they started at
    9. Record Data
    10. Repeat steps 1-9 with different swimmers

    What I am learning is that what science fair project to do and i have seen many I might do for example:
    - Does a swim cap effect how fast you are in the water.
    .:Vocabulary:.
    Drag-
    move slowly and as if with great effort
    Sports Science-
    Sport Science is a discipline that studies the application of scientific principles and techniques with the aim of improving sporting.
    Swim Cap-
    a silicone, latex or lycra cap worn on the head by recreational and competitive swimmers
    Swim-
    travel through water
    Aerodynamic.
    Having a shape that that is not adversely affected by wind flowing past it.
    12-9-08
    Today I will be conducting my experiment on seeing if the swim cap really does effect your speed
