Energy - Lesson 4: Transferring Heat Energy from Warm to Cold Water
Create a blog post entitled, "Transferring Heat Energy."
Take a screen shot of your line graph and insert it as an image at the top of this post.
Drag in a slide show or at least a photo of your lab. These pictures should help show what we are experimenting on and how we did each of the steps.
Read Chapter 4 in your SRB: Heat Energy and Temperature - What's the Difference? (You have to be signed into Prime to view it.)
- How did the temperatures of the water in the red Solo cup and the water in the bucket compare at the beginning?
- What happened to the temperature of the cold water over time?
- What happened to the temperature of the warm water over time?
- How did your graph show what happened?
- After 15 minutes, what did you notice about the lines on your graph?
- What happened to make the temperature of the cold water get warmer?
- What happened to make the temperature of the warm water get colder?
- Use your line graph to predict what the temperature of the warm and cold water would be after 10 more minutes. Record your predictions below. Why did you choose these temperatures?
- Did the water go through the red Solo cup? How do you know? Can the food coloring in the warm water help you explain this answer?
- Which direction did the heat energy move?
