Can Solids Flow Like Liquids?
-What materials were used?
-Does more concentrated granular materials flow faster or slower than less concentrated granular materials?
-Did the experiment work?
-Final overview and thoughts about the experiment
What materials were used?
In this experiment, I used:
Wheat Germ, Oat Bran, Sugar, Salt, and crushed up Crackers. They all were precisely measured to ensure that the amount wasn't a flaw in the experiment. I used my IPod to measure the time, and used Google Docs to record the information I gathered.
Final overview and thoughts about the experiment
I thought the whole experiment went well!
Did the experiment work?
Yes! The experiment worked perfectly! It proved my hypothesis, was accurate, and stayed consistent throughout the rest of the experiment. I did have to test all of them twice, but that was only to increase accuracy.
Do more concentrated granular materials flow faster or slower than less concentrated granular materials?
More concentrated granular materials flow faster.
Does salt flow faster than sugar?
It turns out that salt does flow faster than sugar! The reason: salt is smaller in millimeters compared to sugar. This means that salt can distribute better, and act more like a liquid!
Special thanks
to:
My mother! She helped me get the supplies to preform this experiment. She also helped me time a few of the granular materials while I poured them into the funnel. Thanks!
Review:
This experiment was both fun and easy to do. I didn't spent a lot of money on it, and I learned quite a bit! Big thank you to Science Buddies, a website dedicated to cool science experiments that are easy and fun to do!
