2.METHODS


Our method:Every time a wire goes under and over the other wire,it is counted as one knot.Only by going under and over another wire,it creates a knot,thus we used this method to count number of knots/tangles in the wire.From the above example,as we do not know the formulas,we started to try to understand the diagram.We start off by counting by each time it goes under and over one wire and that is the only idea we had from the diagram.So we decided to use that as our method for counting the amount of knots.

PROCEDURES
1st experiment:We are testing for the length of the wire and how it will affect the amount of tangles
1.Place shorter wire into box
2.Shake for one minute
3.Count the number of tangles
4.Repeat with longer wire
2nd experiment:We are testing for the thickness of the wire and how it will affect the amount of tangles
1.Place thicker wire into box
2.Shake for one minute
3.Count the number of tangles
4.Repeat with thinner wire
3rd experiment:We are testing for the weights at the end of a wire and how it would be affecting the amount of tangles
1.Put wire with weights into box
2.Shake for one minute
3.Count the number of tangles
4.Repeat with wire without weights
