WHICH COLOR ABSORBS THE MOST HEAT ?
BLACK,BROWN,PURPLE,BLUE OR YELLOW? BY J. MOLINS & G.VECINO
If we heat them all with the same amount of heat and time, then black will increase the temperature the most.
We fold in half all the cardstocks and we put the in a table with a small aperture in the side which on we can put the thermometer in. We pick up the chronometer and start.
It's important to point out that the cardstock could've heated up before the experiment but we can not avoid this problem. It would be difficult tu fold them all in time and place them in the same time, we should have lots of hands to do that.
INSTRUMENTS & MATERIAL
TEMPERATURES IN CELSIUS:
The first one is 10 minutes from start. The second one in 20 and the third one is the final one(30).
Black temperatures: 22.5, 26, 30.5
Yellow temperatures: 21, 23, 24.5
Blue temperatures: 21.5, 24, 26.5
Brown temperatures: 22, 25, 27
Purple temperatures: 22, 25.5, 28.5
We have made an experiment to see how some colours reacted to light(heat) and so, as we predicted, black was the colour that heated up the most on our experiment.
Yellow was the color that heated up the less in the experiment because yellow is a brighter color, which reflects more light (heat).
