Best form of insulation

-16 RUBY
-18 RUBY
Problem:
What is the best form of
insulation?
Hypothesis
 I think that if I will use
wool for insulating then
it will be best among the
other insulators.
Experimental Design
 Controlled Variable  Manipulated
 Surface temperature Variable
(outside)  Insulation (form of)
 Equal portions of
water  Responding
 No. of bags and jars Variable
 Inside temperature
Materials:
 Equal portions of
every form of
insulation (wool,
flannel, hair,
thermal insulation,
chicken feather,
cotton)
Materials:
 7 large plastic resealable bags
 Masking tape
 Tap water
 Canning jars with lids (7)
 Refrigerator
 Thermometers
Procedure:
 1.) Insert 1 type of
insulating material
into each plastic
bag. Must be
equal. One bag is
empty as for
control
 2.) Boil water and
put in 7 jars with
equal amounts
Procedure
 3.) record the
temperature of
each jar.
 4.) Put all in
refrigerator.
 5.) Leave for an
hour
 6.) Measure the
temperature again
