Ivory Soap Experiment
By: Hailey Lambros

Procedure:
Abstract
Question:
Which type of soap Ivory of Dial will expand and make the most foam?
Hypothesis:
If I microwave two different pieces of soap for two minutes each then the Ivory soap will make more foam than the Dial soap because the different types of soaps have different densities.
Results of Data
Before Dial Ivory
Length 3 3
Width 1 1
Height 2 2
Volume 6 6
Conclusion
Materials:
1 bar of Ivory Soap, 1 bar of Dial soap, a knife, a microwave, 2 plates, a ruler, and an assistant
Measure both the soaps length,width,and height.
Record the measurements.
Calculate the volume.
Cut the soap into 4 equal pieces (mom)
Place a piece of Ivory soap on a plate and microwave for 2 minutes.
Watch what happens to soap.
Remove from microwave and take measurements again.
Repeat steps for Dial.

As a result of completing this experiment I learned that Ivory soap made more foam than Dial soap. My results supported my hypothesis. I collected data over four days. I recorded the length, volume, width, and height for each of the four pieces of soap before and I after I microwaved them. While I was conducting this experiment I got a different measurement three times after microwaving them. If I was going to conduct this experiment again I would have used two bars of each soap, which would equal eight pieces for each soap.I would do this to see if I would get the same results and measurements as the first four pieces of each soap. My investigation makes a real life because the pockets of air in the Ivory soap expanded while they were being heated.
The question I set out to solve was which type of soap Dial or Ivory would expand and make the most foam. My hypothesis for this experiment was if I microwave two different pieces of soap for two minutes each then the Ivory soap will make more foam than Dial soap because the different types of soap have different densities. The procedure I followed was measuring the length, width, and height of the Ivory soap. Then I recorded the measurements. I then calculated the volume by multiplying the height, width, and length. Then I had my mom help me cut the the bar of soap into four equal pieces. I then placed a piece of soap onto a plate and microwaved it for two minutes. I then watched the soap expand in the microwave. Then I carefully removed the soap from the microwave and recorded the results. I then repeated the steps for the Dial soap. The data I received from the experiment was that the Ivory soap contains air bubbles and produced more foam than Dial. The conclusion I got from conducting this experiment is that the Ivory soap has a higher volume and produces more foam.
