Bikini Bottom Experiments – Bubble Time
Purpose: To find out what brand of gum will blow the biggest
bubble so that Patrick can win the Bikini Bottom Big Bubble
Brand A will have the largest bubble. I believe this is
because it comes in the largest pieces.
Brand B will have the largest bubble. I believe this is
because in the past I have blown the largest bubbles with
this type of gum.
Brand C will have the largest bubble. I believe this is
because it is the most popular bubble gum brand.
Brand D will have the largest. I believe this is because
winners in the past have used this gum.
1) Unwrap a gumball
2) Place gum in mouth
3) Chew for 30 seconds
4) Blow the largest bubble you can!
5) Measure the bubble (with a partner or take it out of your
mouth and measure on the table)
6) Record your results on paper!
7) Pop/deflate your bubble gum
8) Throw the gum and wrapper in the garbage
9) Repeat steps 1) through 8) with each type of bubble gum.
Observations: Measure each bubble across the circle in cm.
Gumball Trident Super Hubba Juicy Friut
3cm 5cm 10cm 12cm 8cm
The trident gum slipped out of the testers mouth and fell
on the floor before they could measure it.
Gumball tasted stale. It was not chewy.
Based on the data collected Hubba Bubba had the largest
bubble. My hypothesis was correct. Patrick should use Hubba
Bubba gum in the Bikini Bottom Big Bubble Contest.
