Experiment Title/Hypothesis

Title:
Investigation of the effect of surface area of the nails  on the max force the balloon can hold before popping.

Hypothesis:
When the surface area of the nails decreases, a lesser force is needed to burst the balloon. If there is an increase of surface area of the nails, a greater  force is needed to burst the balloon.

Independent Variable:
- Number of nails.

Dependent Variable:
- Maximum mass needed for the balloon to burst.

Constant:
- Volume of air inside each balloon.
- Orientation of balloons placed on the nails.
- Type of ballon.
- Height/Type of nails.
- The interval between each nails.
