The configuration that would lift the most washers would be: using 3 batteries in a series order, 2 wires, short string, and, not completely sure yet, a nail, not pulley.

My hypothesis was correct because 1 battery lifted 1 washer, 2 batteries lifted 4 washers and 3 batteries lifted5 washers. something would change is going slower so the washers don't fly off amd hit you in the face. I liked doing series because the washers lifted up faster! Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:20 PM GMT • comment • Reads 341

The reason i wrote this is because, we are doing an experiment with all these things in science! The experiment is to see how many washers a motor/pulley can pull up! My groups motor/pulley pulled up 9 washers! Do you think it could pull up more than 9?? -Bradynn Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:20 PM GMT • comment • Reads 55

My team used series,nail,2 batterys,short string,and 4 wires and we lifted 6 washers average.   ~Ally Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:20 PM GMT • comment • Reads 291
 Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:19 PM GMT • comment • Reads 333 What was the highest number of washers our motors lifted? We lifted a highest of nine. What configuration of motor, batteries, string, wires, etc. accounted for the highest numbers of washers lifted? We need to put our batteries in series, have three batteries, put the string on the nail, have two wires and have a short string. Can this lift more than nine washers? It should be able to lift more than nine washers. Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:19 PM GMT • comment • Reads 333

 Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:17 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1002 Series 3 batteries Nail? 2 wires Short string/ distance : will probably be the configuration for the highest washers lifted. Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:17 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1002
 Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 97 The range of how many washers we lifted was 6-9 but my team (g2) got 5 for 3 batteries. To lift more than 9 washers: Series 3 batteries Nail? 2 wires Short string/distance Complete circuit! Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 97
