  • Hypothesis On The Boiling Process Of Water

    1146 Words  | 3 Pages

    heat-matter interaction is apparent in the boiling of water or any other liquid. Boiling involves the physical transformation (no change in the composition) of a liquid (water) to a gas (steam) by using the heat added to the system to break the intermolecular forces of attractions that hold the liquid together. The boiling process in many physical systems depends on many factors. For this study, the effect of adding other substances on the boiling process of water was determined. This was done through

    Investigating Surfaces for Insulating Boiling Water in a Flask Aim I'm investigating which surface (matt black or silvery) is best at insulating boiling water. I will investigate this by covering two equally sized conical flasks in different materials; one in matt black and one in silvery. After that I will fill each of the flasks with an equal amount of boiling water. At regular intervals of 1 minute I will measure the drop in water temperature in each flask. Prediction I predict

  • Which Type of Salt will Increase the Boiling Point of Water the Most?

    875 Words  | 2 Pages

    conducting this experiment is trying to find out which salt- Epsom, table salt, and sea salt- will increase the boiling point of water the most. Sodium chloride is believed to increase the boiling point of water because when salt is suspended into the water, the sodium and chlorine ions leave the “salt crystals” and mix with the water molecules. (“Why does salt… raise boiling point of water?”, 2009). People discovered salt around 900 B.C. They would dig up salt near the Dead Sea and in South America

    688 Words  | 2 Pages

    Changing the Volume of Water in a Container Affects Its Rate of Heat Loss Aim : To investigate how changing the volume of water in a container affects its rate of its heat loss. The variable of this investigation is the volume of water which is put in the container. What I already know: I already know that the larger the volume of water there is the less heat loss occurs. I can tell this from my previous pilot experiment where I investigated, if the volume of water in a beaker affects

    -- show that for decades, the corporate giant concealed what it did and what it knew. In 1966, Monsanto managers discovered that fish submerged in that creek turned belly-up within 10 seconds, spurting blood and shedding skin as if dunked into boiling water. They told no one. In 1969, they found fish in another creek with 7,500 times the legal PCB levels. They decided "there is little object in going to expensive extremes in limiting discharges." In 1975, a company study found that PCBs caused tumors

    Insulating Materials Introduction In this investigation I aim to find out which materials are the best insulators. This practical investigation involves investigating what kinds of materials are best at keeping water in a copper beaker warm. A material that prevents this heat loss is called an insulator. Insulators have to prevent three types of heat loss: · Conduction · Convection · Radiation Conduction - This is where heat energy passes through the walls of the copper beaker by

    Remember the story your parents read to you when you were a child - the enormously popular children’s book called The Three Little Pigs by James Halliwell-Phillips? Almost every child has heard the story of the three piglets whom the Wolf tried to deceive. Although he succeeded in tricking the first two pigs, the third did not allow the Wolf to confuse him. The third Pig managed to outplay the Wolf in almost every situation the Wolf believed he had the upper hand which ended with the third little

  • The Importance Of Macaroni And Cheese

    I came to realize the importance of mac and cheese while babysitting. The mother had not warned me that her two year old was going through a mac and cheese phase. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, all he would eat was mac and cheese. Not being aware of this child’s diet, I had prepared him lasagna for dinner. Although both dishes involve pasta and cheese, this two year old knew the difference. The plate of lasagna ended up on the floor, and he screamed and pounded his tiny fists on his high chair. The

    tearing one another up under the stresses of captivity, survive right up until they’re boiled (Wallace, 60). He mentions that the lobster is in fact boiled alive to maintain it’s freshness and describes the boiling process. “[The lobster] comes alarmingly to life when placed in boiling water. The lobster will sometimes try to cling to the container’s sides or even hook its claws over the kettle’s rim like a person trying to keep from going over the edge of a roof” (Wallace 62). He compares the lobster

    notable characteristic of an egg is how much an egg white can foam up. Why does this happen? Eggs are approximately 90 percent water and 10 percent protein. There is an electrical attraction between water molecules (for this reason you won't get any results from trying to whip up water alone) and when you beat them you are allowing the proteins to break apart the water molecules. When they get farther apart, the electric attraction decreases which allows the egg whites to spread out and bonds to

    rotates (fig 3-1) it forces water down and back as this is happening water must move into the void created by the spiraling blades. This creates a pressure differential across the blade- Low pressure on the back side and high pressure on the front side. This causes water to be sucked into the propeller and accelerated out the back (fig 3-3) much like a house-hold fan (fig 3-2). This action creates the thrust that drives a boat. It is common knowledge that water boils at 100deg C (212deg F)

    tortuous method for killing any animal. When lobsters are put into steaming hot water, it is unjust to assume that they don’t feel any pain while being boiled. In his essay “Consider the lobster”, Wallace states, “Lobsters do have nociceptors, as well as invertebrate versions of prostaglandins and major neurotransmitter via which our own brains register pain.” (Wallace par. 13) Humans just throw the lobster in the boiling water without a second thought of the intense pain the animal is about to go through

    Someone walks into a fancy seafood restaurant, he/she would usually get some sort of lobster-oriented dish. Lobster is just food to many people and those people do not think much about the fact that those lobsters that they are eating were once living creatures. “Consider the Lobster” by David Foster Wallace talks about lobsters during the Maine Lobster Festival. PETA is also brought into the piece as they dispute the cooks who think lobsters do not feel anything while being boiled alive. Lobsters
