    What are the decomposition rates of different items?
  • hypotosis

    hypotosis
    I think that the paper will decompose the most out of styrofoam, aluminum foil, sun chips bag, regular chips bag, apple, paper, cotton, and an orange. My approximent guess as a percentage of how much i think will decompose is paper 100%, apple 95%, regular chips bag 68%, orange 95%, sun chips bag 98%, styrofoam 0%, cotton 0%, aluminum foil 0%

    materials
    The materials that we used were wooden stickes, sleg hammer, rebar sticks, caution tape, shovles, apple, orange, paper, cotton, aluminum foil, regular chips bag, sun chips bag, and syrofoam.
