The blue color m&m melted in every amount of time for my experiment.The orange did not melt at all in 20,30,or 40 seconds.The red melted only in 20 and 40 seconds.The yellow only melted in 30 and 40 seconds.Finally the green and brown m&m both melted in 40 seconds and not in 30 or 20 seconds.

I thought the dark colored m&ms would melt faster than the lighter colors but that did not happen.During my observation I think that it might have been the glass plate that attracted heat from the microwave which might have made the candies melt faster.Next time I do this experiment I would try to use a paper plate so the plate will not heat up in the microwave.The better hypothesis would be that the darker colors do not necessarily melt faster than lighter colors.

The problem was Do Some Colors of m&m's Melt Faster Than Others?It was hypothesized that if I put 6 m&ms into a microwave then I think the darker colors will melt faster.
The procedure followed was
First,put 6 m&m's on a plate.Second,put them into a microwave for 20 seconds.Third,poke each m&m to see what happened.Fourth,put them in a microwave for 30 seconds.Fifth,poked to see what happened.Sixth,put in a microwave for 40 seconds and finally poke to see what happened.
It was concluded that I thought the dark colored m&m's would melt faster than the lighter colors but that did not happen.During my observation I think that it might have been the glass plate that attracted heat from the microwave which might have made the candies melt faster.Next time I do this experiment I would try to use a paper plate so the plate will not heat up in the microwave.The better hypothesis would be that darker colors do not necessarily melt faster than lighter colors.Theresults of my experiment did not support the hypothesis because of the different chemical reactions in food coloring.
