THE SCIENCE BEHIND A PINWHEEL

THE SCIENCE BEHIND A PINWHEEL IS

  • Force and resistance

  • Rotational motion

  • The rotational motion (the power behind windmills and wind generators) is dependent upon the size and quantity of the blades and the force of the wind

  • Cause and effect: how rotation differs depending on sizes of blades, quantity of blades, how speed differs depending on force of wind

  • Observation, investigation, communication
