Warm Up # 1-2 – August 25

  • Answer all of the questions to the best of your ability in complete sentences .

    Three groups of students decided to design experiments to learn more about the process of evaporation. One group of students used the four different containers shown below.

    The students poured 100 milliliters of water at 20°C into each container. The containers were placed side by side on a table near the window for 24 hours. The next day the students used a graduated cylinder to measure the amount of water left in each container.

  • Write one question the students were probably trying to answer in their investigation.

  • Explain why the students put the containers side by side instead of putting each container in a different room.

Warm Up #1-11 – September 8

The second group of students decided to see if different liquids evaporate at the same rate at room temperature. The students decided to test three liquids: freshwater, saltwater, and rubbing alcohol. The students poured 50 mL of each liquid into a separate beaker. All the beakers were placed next to one another on a shelf.

After two days, the students used a graduated cylinder to measure the amount of liquid remaining in each beaker. The table below shows the results.

Results – After Two Days –

Question: Before the experiment, the students had the hypothesis that salt water would evaporate faster than the other liquids. Do the results of the experiment support the hypothesis? Explain your answer.
