Today we did an experiment. We wrapped plastic bottles in different things. For example, there was foil, plastic wrap, wax paper, batting, foam, and felt. My partner and I wrapped our bottle in felt. We held our bottles in an ice bath. There was hot water in the bottles we had. We put one tempeture probe in the ice bath and another in our bottle. Then we pulled up logger lite on the computer and we saw how the tempetures changed.
I learned that different materials have different amounts of insulation. For example, a good insulator (the material that kept the water hotter)was the batting. The batting kept the water from 42.3 degree's Celsius.
