Introduction The purpose of this lab is to predict the final temperature after mixing the same volume of water with different temperatures. I believe that the hot water will always overcome the cold water. Experimental Methods I will first fill two cups one with cold and the other with hot water. Both cups will have the same volume of water in them. I will then pour both cups into a separate container and will record the temperature. This will conclude the first part of the experiment. The second experiment will consist having three cups, two with hot water and one with cold, all with the same amount of water in them, mixing them and recording the temperature. The third experiment will be just like the second, but two cups will be filled with cold water, and one cup with hot water.

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....
