How does the bow of a ship influence water resistance?
The hypothesis that a boat with a V-shaped bow and a curved bottom will have the least amount of fluid resistance, is proven to be true.
The study of fluid dynamics is useful in developing more fuel efficient boats and planes.
This science project can be repeated by varying the number of water pumps to simulate varying flow rates.
This experiment can also be repeated using different weights placed in the boat.
