Unformatted text preview: Results For the first experiment I predicted the temperature would be 38° the actual temperature was 36.8°. I thought it would be the hot temperature plus the cold temperature divided by two. For the second experiment I had the temperatures as: Cold Cup – 17.8 1Hot Cup – 70.5 2Hot Cup – 68 I predicted 56° and the actual temp. was 49.5 For the third experiment these were the temperatures: Hot – 72.5 1Cold – 18 2Cold – 18 I predicted 36° and the actual temp. was 35.2 Discussion I figured out there was a formula to all this, and it was actually really simple to use. Add every temperature and then divide it by the count of number of temperatures. Neither cold nor hot are going to make water any hotter or colder, it just depends on the amount of water and the temperatures....
