Lava in a Cup

By: Faith Fickey And Kelsey Richmond

The Purpose

We did this project because it seemed like something fun to do and it was something really easy to experiment on.


-14 grams of salt

-1/4 cup of vegetable oil


-red food coloring

-clear plastic cup


The experiment ended up resulting the same as the hypothesis. The second time the the experiment was done lasted longer than the first because two times the amount of salt was used the second time made the reaction time about two times longer than the first reaction time. The experiment could of been better by repeating it over and over and finding the average amount of time between the two times it was experimented.
