Activity Goals: The objective of this lab was to examine the law of cooling by using a container of very hot water, and testing to find the rate at which it cools. Using this data once collected, would then be made into a graph to see how the law looks itself in a visual manner. Procedure: The procedure for the experiments completed in this lab and the information can be found in the Physics 163 Lab Manual on pages 79-80.

When using a thermometer to find temperature, there are uncertainties, which can be linked to it. These uncertainties could have affected the data which was collected. The thermometer which was used has an uncertainty of 0.5 degrees, this can create a big difference in the final data calculations. An identical thermometer was used to find the temperature of the room as well, these data was used to find the change in
