I found that the diameter and weight of the can don't make much of a difference, like I had suspected. I think this was because they did not differ very drastically. However, I found that the contents of the can did matter a lot. The more watery the contents were, the faster the can rolled. I think this was because there was less friction being put on the can from the inside contents.

What happened was: I found out that, at least for me, that bigger cans with watery contents rolled faster.

I got a chicken broth can and a wider soup can.I made a ramp in my dining room.When I let go I saw that that the thinner one went faster

My class and I did it as a project.First, we jotted down notes from the can.Then, we were ready to test it out.We tried it out many times.The results were that the heavier cans rolled faster and steadier.We then realized that if you try it on a smooth surface,the results will be more accurate.
