The Effects of Different Lids
Which cup of brown Scentsy wax will cool the fastest?
By: Gracie Ames & Morgan Fisher
Question & Hypothesis
How will the different types of lids effect how fast the brown Scentsy wax will cool?
The wax in the no lid cup will harden the fastest, because the others which have lids will trap the heat of the wax, unlike the cup with no lid.
2. Three Clear Cups
4. I Pod Touch Timer
5. Three Cubes of Brown Scentsy wax
8. Three Rubber bands
9. Two Erasers per Cup (to prop cups)
Was Our Hypothesis Right or Wrong?
Our Thoughts about our Results
We also think the reason the wax in the no lid cup had temperatures between the foil covered and wax-paper covered wax is because we believe the wax-paper absorbed a lot of the heat lamp's heat for it's volume and then took the most time to release the energy.
Lastly, we're not sure why the wax of the foil covered cup cooled the fastest, it surprised Morgan but that's just what our results showed.
