Measuring the Speed of Light
Transcript of Measuring the Speed of Light
Katlyn Reece & Kaycee Morales
East Coweta High School
we are both freshman at ECH and we enjoy sports and hunting. We are both 15 years old. We are here to show you how you can
The purpose for doing this experiment is to measure the speed of light. We will be using a few simple materials that include: a microwave, caculator, a ruler, eggs, a plate, and oven mitts. This experiment is to see how light travels from the different hot spots in the microwave oven to the egg whites on the plate. This will identify how much light travels from one hotspot in the oven to one particular place in the egg white on the plate.
Our hypothesis was that the different hot spots in the microwave would either travel faster or slower to different parts of the eggs.
First crack the egg. Then , separate the egg white from the yolk into a bowl. Take a portion of the egg white and pour it onto a microwave safe plate. Carefully place the plate into the microwave and cook it for 30 seconds. Once the egg is partially cooked, remove the plate and record your data.
1. metric ruler
2. 30 eggs
3. microwave safe plate
4. oven mitt
The results for this experiment were that egg whites on the plate have different distances. Each one of the eggs that we cooked had a different distance between the cooked parts of it . Once it was cooked. we compared the different time distances
we would like to thank Ms. Cathy and Mrs. Daniels for helping us with this project . And answering the questions that we had
