Science 28

Three students designed an experiment using various sized aluminum beads. The beads were placed in a cylinder, as shown below in Figure 1.

The aluminum beads used in the experiment varied in diameter. Density remained constant, as shown in Figure 2.

During the experiment, the students filled the cylinder shown in Figure 1 with water, and dropped the beads at random from point A in the cylinder. The beads were then allowed to drop freely through the water. The time it took for each bead to reach point B was recorded. The averages are shown in Table 1.
