Abstract
The purpose of this study was to compare the two brands of rubber bands to determine which brand of household rubber band has a longer elastic limit. The researcher picked this topic because she was curious as to which of the two brands would yield better service for future purchase.
Elastic limit was the measuring point because a rubber band’s effectively is how long it can stretch without breaking. It is also what this whole research is based upon. The researcher chose rubber bands for her experiment because it is common and found almost everywhere especially in households. Procedure for this experiment was to stretch these bands to its elastic limit and measure the distance in centimeters. There were two brands of rubber bands used in this experiment but Brand B is clearly superior to Brand A since Brand A’s elastic limit (approx. 40cm) is at least 10cm less than Brand B’s elastic limit (approx.50cm).
Her recommendation for future researchers is to further study the elastic limit of household rubber bands and perhaps use different brands for better comparisons. Another possibility is to determine if the type of rubber or latex can have an effect on the elastic limit or maybe manufacturing method. Lastly one can possibly use Hooke’s Law as an alternative method to the researchers set up.

CHAPTER 1
The Problem and Background of the Study
Introduction
Rubber bands, or elastics as they are sometimes called, are one of the most convenient objects in the world. It is often used as a binder to tie or hold things together due to its elasticity. (Newspapers use rubber bands for home deliveries for folding or rolling individual newspapers. In the flower industry it is used for...

It is the process of taking one’s environment and new information and fitting it into pre-existing cognitive schemas. Assimilation occurs when humans are faced with new or unfamiliar information and refer to previously learned information in order to make sense of it. Accommodation, unlike assimilation is the process of taking
