Unformatted text preview: To make our test fair, we will keep these things the same: Our Results: Surface Distance (cm) The 2p travelled the furthest on the so it has the smoothest surface and has the least amount of friction. The 2p travelled the least on the so it has the roughest surface and has the most amount of friction....
