Cooler than cool

cooler than cool

ITS ALL ABOUT MINTS!


Question

question

Does fresh mint cool things down in temperature or is it merely a sensation?


Purpose

purpose

The purpose of this project is to determine if fresh mint can cool other objects or not. It is important to know this because you can cool down your mouth with fresh mint if you eat something hot.


Hypotheses

hypotheses

We hypothesize that fresh mint will cool objects down. We believe this because when you take a breath mint it makes your mouth cool.


Procedure

procedure


Materials

materials

30 fresh mint leaves

SPARK thermometer

600 ml water

Stop watch


Variables

Variables

Manipulated-mint leaves

Responding-water temperature

Constant-amount of water, size of cups, method of measuring of water temperature


Directions

DIRECTIONS

1. FILL TWO 88.7 ML CUPS OF 60 ML ROOM TEMPERATURE WATER

2. RECORD TEMPATURE WITH SPARK THERMOTER

3. ADD 6 MINT LEAVES TO THE CUP OF WATER

4. WAIT TEN MINUTES

5. RECORD TEMPATURE WITH THE SPARK THERMOTER

6. REPEAT STEPS 1-5 FOR FOUR MORE STEPS


Conclusion

conclusion

Our hypothesis was incorrect. Fresh mint does not cool water down in temperature. It makes it warmer. Our water’s average temperature was 24.08 degrees Celsius. That's cooler than our water with fresh mint’s average temperature which was 24.16 degrees Celsius. Our research led us to discover that mints give off menthol and that maybe raised the water temperature.
