The materials I used for the experiment are :
3 plastic cups

1 litre of water

Tinfoil

Cotton wool

Cloth

Thermometer

Timer
Procedure
First I boiled the water in a kettle.

I poured exactly 500ml of water into each cup

I wrapped each individual cup in each of the different materials - one cup in tinfoil, one in cotton, and one with cloth.

I set the timer for 10 minutes and recorded the temperature at intervals of 2, 4, 6 ,8 and 10 minutes.

I recorded the results and compared which material was the best at retaining the heat of the liquid.
What temperature is this at?
