# Double Double Boil and Bubble

## Hypothesis

I think the larger the pan the faster it will heat up because the pan will conduct more thermal energy and heat it up faster.

## Problem

Will different sizes of pans affect how fast water boils?

## Materials

• multiple pans of different shapes and sizes as listed below
• width 6'' depth 4''
• width 8'' depth 2''
• width 8'' depth 3''
• width 11'' depth 2''
• width 11'' depth 5''
• stove
• water
• lab notebook
• thermometer
• clock

## Procedures

I have five pans of different sizes and I am going to heat the same amount of water one at a time in each pan. I will never turn off the heat until I am finished and at the end of two minutes I will record the temperature in my lab note book.

## Results

1. width 6'' depth 4'' -- 130°F
2. width 8'' depth 2'' -- 130°F
3. width 8'' depth 3'' -- 117°F
4. width 11'' depth 2'' -- 115°F
5. width 11'' depth 5'' -- 102°F

## Conclusion

My hypothesis was incorrect because the larger the pan the more heat goes into the metal. This means there is less heat to go in the water.

## Further Questions

If I was to increase the time I wonder if the bigger pan does more of a curve if I gave it more time it will heat up the pan then be able to heat up the water.

## Real-Life Application

Now I will use the smallest pan that will fit the size amount so it will heat up faster.
