OBSERVING ICE CUBES
Firstly, we observed an ice cube in some hot water.
we used a thermometer to measure the temperature
We took note every 30 seconds for 2 minutes the change in temperature of the water and state of the ice cube itself.
Then we did the same experiment with a variety of materials insulating/covering the cup
We recorded our observations.
Which one do you think retained heat the best ?.....
or could it be the cup itself?
It was the Tinfoil!
We drew a graph with our results on it, what type of graph would you do?
