- Describe how the heat energy transferred from the hot plate to the butter.
- How did the results compare to your predictions.
- Which of the tested materials were the two best conductors? What is your evidence?
- Which of the tested materials were the two worst conductors? What is your evidence?
- Do you think water is a good or poor conductor? Why?
- Why do you think it matters which material is a good or bad conductor? How do we use conductors in our life?
1. The energy transferred from the hot plate to the butter because the hot plate was heating the jar that was heating the stick that heated the butter to make it melt
2. I was at preteaching for the predictions
3. The two best conductors were copper and aluminum because they were the first two to have the butter melt.
4. The two worst conductors were plastic and bamboo wood because those ones melted last.
5. I think water is a good conductor because it makes the stick hotter so that means there is a better chance of having the butter melt it would be bad if the water was cold because then the butter wouldn't melt a fast.
6. It matters if the material is a good or bad conductor because if you want it to go faster than you should use a good conductor. It matters in our life because you use conductors to cook thing so you can eat like putting water in a pot on the stove it heats the water and it also heats whats in the pot.
