a. In this experiment, we hope to discover how the three different temperature scales vary in measurement between each other. To do this we are going to use the hot plate to heat a beaker up to 100 degrees centigrade. After that we will remove the beaker from the hot plate and leave it to cool down to 40ºC. When we it reaches 40ºC, we will attempt to establish the linear relationship and figure out the equations relating the Fahrenheit & Celsius scales. Determination of the equation relationship between Fahrenheit and Kelvin will also be done.
II. Materials and Methods
b. In doing this experiment we used all of the following to perform the experiment: LabWorks or stop watch, hot plate, beaker, thermometer, and thermistors.
c. The hot plate was used heat up the beaker in order. Using thermistors wasn't an option as they were in operable, so we manually used a stop watch after 30 seconds of temperature drops. We used LabWorks spreadsheet to compute the data we found from the measurements from the thermometer.
d. Refer to Temperature Graph and Table
e. The three graphs show the linear relationships between each temperature scale for which the values are listed in the table.
f. We heated up the beaker to 100ºC and started counting down to 40ºC. We gathered that our measurements in centrigrade didn't drop to 40 after 13 minutes, but only 46ºC. On the Temperature Graphs, we collected from the linear relationship between Celsius and Fahrenheit to be 0.998711. Between Celsius and Kelvin it was 0.999998. Between Kelvin and Fahrenheit it was 0.998715. [continues]
