Try an experiment from the book: Layer of insulation
How does insulation affect the flow of heat?
1. Tape one strip of construction paper over the bulb of each thermometer. This will help them absorb heat from the Sun.
2. Place one thermometer inside one sandwich bag and blow air into the bag to inflate it. Secure the air in the bag by twisting the opening around the thermometer, then sealing it with a piece of tape.
3. Place the second thermometer in the other sandwich bag, and again, inflate and seal it. Place this bag inside a gallon-size plastic bag. Inflate the gallon-size plastic bag with air and seal it.
4. Leave the third thermometer unbagged. Read the initial temperature on each thermometer and record the information in your science notebook.
5. Place all three thermometers in sunlight. After 10 minutes, read the temperature of each thermometer and record the information in your science notebook.
Now try this!
Replace the thermometers with ice cubes and see if the double bag insulator helps keep the ice from melting.
Level of difficulty: Medium
- 3 (2.5-by-1.5-centimeter) strips of black construction paper
- 3 thermometers
- 2 fold-top plastic sandwich bags
- Gallon-size plastic bag
