Aluminum Lab

Our table did a lab called Aluminum Lab. We wanted to test our hypothesis to see if the water in the can will make the can heat up faster.

Transcript of Aluminum Lab

When we first put the can onto the stove, we saw nothing. When we waited about 30 seconds, steam started to arise from the can. Then we flipped the can into the water. When the can interacted with the water, the can caved in.

In the lab, the question was asked, "Will adding more water to the can increase the heat of the can?" We hypothesized that adding more water to the can would increase the heat of the can. We thought this because we thought the water would absorb the heat, and then distribute that heat into the can. Our hypothesis was correct: the more water you added, the higher temperature you would get. If we wanted to further explore this experiment, we could use different brands of cans, put them on the hot plate, then see which can gets the hottest.
1.) Hot Plate
2.) Aluminum Can (12 oz.)
3.) Beaker Tongs
4.) Cool Water
5.) Bin for water

Does the amount of water in a can make it heat up faster?
20 C*
25 C*
30 C*
Water will make the can heat up much faster. We think that adding water to the can will increase the overall heat of the can. We think this because we think the water will absorb some of the heat from the hot plate, adding to the overall heat to the can.

Temperature (C*)
Some errors that could have effected our data are that we measured the temperature of the can after we "popped" it in the water. Also, we might have not kept the cans on the hot plate for the same amount of time each time we put a can on the hot plate.
Step one: Get the materials.
Step two: Measure water.
Step three: Pour water in can.
Step four: Put can on hot plate.
Step five: Flip the can into the water.
Step six: Measure temperature with thermometer.
We used 1 hot plate, 3 cans, 1 beaker tongs, 1 bucket of cool water, 1 bin, and 1 thermometer.
