ABSTRACT
The purpose of this experiment was to test hand strength in different variables. A few examples of these variables would be boys vs. girls and tall vs. short, and all measurements were taken in Newtons. The method most commonly used was having the test subject squeeze the hand dynamoter three times so that an average could be taken. Overall it was found that boys, short boys, tall girls, and the dominate hand are stronger than their counterparts. In many of the graphs it can be seen that it was very close and that it really depends on the person.

EXPERIMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS & FUTURE EXPERIMENTS
Some improvements that could be made to the process of conducting the experiments could be to have more advanced technology and to have several test subjects waiting for when you are done with one test subject so the next could just take the first one's place. Some future experiments could be to test how fatigue affects hand strength and to see if female adults or male adults have better hand strength.
