Are People Who Snore Usually Less Capable of Long Periods of Exercise?

Research Questions:

Snoring often results from obstructed airflow from at least one of the structures used for breathing. Maybe people opt for surgery or alternatives to rid themselves of the obstruction because some snoring sounds can be unpleasant and disruptive. In this experiment, we'll find out if snoring is linked to limited respiratory capacity.


  • Test subjects: At least 25 people who snore and at least 25 people who do not snore.
  • Timers/stopwatches
  • Pen/paper for notes

Experimental Procedure:

  1. Separate your subjects into two test groups based on whether they snore or not.
  2. Have your test subjects run around in a circle around a field until they get short of breath or tired. Time this.
  3. Evaluate your results and find the average workout times of people who snore and don't snore.
