Science Project #1

Downhill Race

Two cylinders that look the same may roll down a hill at different rates.

Two objects with the same shape and the same mass may behave differently when they roll down a hill. How quickly an object accelerates depends partly on how its mass is distributed. A cylinder with a heavy hub accelerates more quickly than a cylinder with a heavy rim.
