An investigation on padding pressure in football helmetsFeatured science projectScience project video

Observation

Increasing the pressure of the padding in the football helmet  led to an increase in pressure inside the airbag during collision with the weight.

Measurement Effect of different helmet padding pressure on the pressure inside the airbag during collision (mmHg)
  750 mmHg 800 mmHg 850 mmHg 900 mmHg
Airbag pressure (mmHg) 1635 1685 1710 1725

Use the graph below to plot the experimental data recorded in the table above.
