Natural HeatingApparatus (what we need)

  • 2 Capsules
  • cold water
  • black paper
  • white paper
  • tape
  • sun
  • thermometer

Method (what we did)
We put white paper around capsule 1 and taped the paper. Then we put black paper around capsule 2.

We filled the capsules with cold water at the same level
.
We left the capsules in the sun and measured the temperature many times.

Prediction (what we think is going to happen)
We thought that white paper would left more sun in.

Results (The data)
The black paper absorbed more sun light than the white paper.

Time A (Black paper) D (White paper)
11:31 16.2 15.9
12:33 19.3 18.3
1:05 14.8 13.3
4:18 17.8 16.6
5:15 14.8 14.9
6:44 13.8 13.5

Conclusion (what did we learn)
On a sunny day if you want to keep cool you should wear white clothes.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
