All but one of the objects traveled further before there was water on the ice.

I'm having a hard time finding information for my research paper. If anyone has ANY input please help me out and reply asap! Thanks!
One of the objects? Sometimes, there are sources of error that go into the experiment. That is why you need lots of trials. Or do you mean one type of object? It could have something to do with its shape or its surface area. Can you explain more detailed what you have, or post up your results?
God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I could, and the wisdom to know the difference.
