Components of an Experiment Design


Title

To investigate the affects of the reflectiveness of the flap on the efficiency of the solar cooker in heating up the water.


Hypothesis

The more reflective the flap is, the greater the amount of heat the cooker absorbs, the higher the temperature of water at the end of experiment.


Independent

variable

The sides of aluminium flap (one less reflective and one more reflective)


Dependent variable

Temperature of the water at the end of the experiment


Constants

The type of material of the box, the location of the set-up, the thickness of the aluminium flap


Control

A set-up with the flap without any aluminium wrapped around it


Number of trials

2
