Transcript of Slime Lab Report

Sadie Wiese and Erin Oakes How will submerging slime in waters with varying temperatures affect its properties? Background information:
we couldn't find any information online about our experiment
we knew that some combinations of borax and glue changed the texture and properties of the slime, so we wanted to see what temperature would do Materials The slimes submerged in the colder waters will have a more solid consistency. Elmer's glue
Petri dish
Stirrers Glue Borax Procedure: 1.) Make slime J (10ml glue to 5ml borax and 10 drops oil.)
2.)Divide slime up into 4 plastic bags and one Petri dish.
3.) Make 4 water temperatures (2*C, 6*C, 43*C, 57*C)
4.) Put slime in bags into cups of water for 5 minutes
5.) Put slime from bags and control into Petri dishes and measure how far it spreads in 1 minute.
6.) We attempted to measure how far it dripped in 1 minute, but it moved too fast to measure.
7.) Once we took out the slime and as we tested it, we made observations about it. Conclusion Our hypothesis was proven correct by how much the slime spread in a petri dish over the course of a minute, as well as the physical properties that were observed over the course of the investigation. Our results were partially inconclusive because of the type of slime used and the effect of the cold water on the already liquid-like slime. These factors made it harder to measure quantitative data about the slime.

Next time, if we were to redo this experiment, we would a more "solid" slime, so that we could test it with more ease.

During our experiment, we began to wonder if it's possible to melt or freeze our slime (slime J.)

We would pursue these questions by doing another lab. In that lab we would use more temperatures so that we could get more data as well as use a different combination of glue and borax for our slime. Why is this experiment worth doing?
If you make a slime and realize that it's not the consistency you needed, you can fix it.
Also it would be interesting to see if we could freeze or melt the slime. Unfortunately, because of the slime we used, the results were difficult to measure. (The slime remained to liquid-like to measure in some ways.) From the way the different slimes spread in the Petri dishes, we were able to see that the colder slimes spread less in one minute than those slimes that had been in hot water. A large part of our data qualitative because we spends a lot of time making observation about our slime. We used knowledge that we already had about the ingredients of the slime. We know that water because a solid at a low temperature, we also know that glue melts at a higher temperature. So, using this information we hypothesized that the slime would get a more solid consistency.
