In science class today, we learned about heat transfers. Our experiment for today was to find out if heat can transfer to cool through a plastic cup. To study this, we used a thermometer that plugged into a computer and had its own app. We measured a plastic cup full of water for our hot, and a bucket full of cool water for our cool. Then we put our plastic cup into the bucket and put red dye in it. We did this so that we could find out if the water was going through the plastic cup. Then we stuck our thermometers into the water. We had 2 so that we could measure both temperatures. We messed up a little on it and we have 3 sets of lines. However, we can still see the pattern. The water gets steadily cooler or warmer through the line parts. I was surprised to find out that the water became almost the same temperatures! Both temperatures became an x and the red water didn't go through the cup. This was surprising because I thought they would just go on in a straight line, but they didn't.
