Distance Traveled vs. Balloon Length

Submitted by bpmccarthy on Fri, 10/18/2019 - 15:23

Figure 1: Distance traveled by spiders plotted against the length of the balloon used. Spiders use webs to create "balloons" of different lengths to carry them a certain distance. From the graph it is observed that as male spiders increase their distance traveled, the balloon length decreases. On the other hand, female spiders seem to have very little relationship between distance traveled and balloon length, if anything it is very slightly positive.
