Taking It to the Edge

The Objective

In this project I will investigate the relationship between the amount of information stored on a CD-R disc and the size of the "burn" by measuring with a ruler. Last there will be some questions I answered from my experiment, which you might have asked yourself.

Methods/Materials

The materials I used are the following:

1. Computer

2. CD burner (internal or external)

3. About 10 blank CD-R discs

4. A photo, music file, or folder about 100 MB in size

5. Permanent marker

6. Ruler with centimeters

Results

The CDs that I burned kept getting an area kept on getting higher.

But there was a limit for the CD capacity.

Conclusions/Discussion

When I finished my experiment; I found out that the CDs had a limit as you can see in the graph on the top.

In my project I Burned CDs to find the measure of the information on them.
