purpose
purpose
  • To determine the best material(s) for insulating a Snapple bottleusing household materials.
background
background
  • Insulation is a key part of temperature regulation, and affects energy conservation.

Pink Board and Blue Board, two of the most potent greenhouse gas agents.

A change must occur, or many species like the beautiful polar bear will face extinction.

setup
Setup
  • Split into teams of 2.
  • Each team take 2 Snapple bottles and fill with room temperature water.
  • Rock, Paper Scissors for first choice in material.
  • Winner selects first, then alternate in choosing materials until they have all been selected.

data collection
Data collection
  • Each team will have 4 materials to insulate 2 Snapple bottles.
  • Lab view will take temperature readings every 15 seconds for a duration of 5 minutes (20 total).
  • The insulated Snapple bottles will be tested 2 at a time (1 from each team).
results
Results
  • Each team’s average change in temperature can be calculated with this formula:

Bottle #1 change in temp.

+

Bottle #2

Change in temp.

2

  • The team with the lower average change in temperature wins.
analysis
analysis
  • Teams will finish their experiment by answering a set of questions…
  • Which insulation materials worked best? Why do you think these were better materials?
  • What suggestions do you have to improve this lab for future students?
  • How does this lab relate to sustainability? Is insulation an effective way to conserve energy?
