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.
