ABSTRACT

Styro are waste materials that can be seen everywhere. The Styro are harmful in our environment because when it is burned it gives Carbon Dioxide that can destroy our world and carbon dioxide can cause Global Warming. So the researcher conducted an experiment about Styro.

Manufacturers create Styrofoam through the alteration of polystyrene. Polystyrene is composed of a long chain of styrene molecules. In its unaltered form, polystyrene is rigid and translucent. A blowing agent transforms molten polystyrene into Styrofoam through the construction of a porous cellular structure.

The organic compound (CH3)2CO, or acetone, is a translucent flammable liquid that exhibits a high degree of solvency. Many compounds are soluble when exposed to acetone. A Styrofoam and acetone experiment can determine if Styrofoam will dissolve when placed inside a container of acetone.

Starch is the major component of flour. Starch exists in tiny granules, which swell and break when boiled in water. This releases the starch molecules, which then all stick together to make a goopy, gluey mess.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

First of all I want to thank God for giving me strength for doing this investigatory project. When I heard that we will make our own Investigatory Project There is one thing that comes in my mind, what will I do first? What kind of Investigatory Project would I make? I’m very thankful that there is my teacher Mrs. Merian Galang who guide as in this project.

I also want to thank my parents who help me to do this project and specially give me money conduct to this project. I’m thankful that I have parents like them.

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

One of the problem of a people is Global Warming. Global Warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans. Plastics like candy wrapper plastic bags and also Styro can contributed to Global Warming because when this products are burned it release Carbon Dioxide. Carbon Dioxide is one that contribute to Global Warming. This research is about the Potential of Styro as ideal glue. Glue can be used in paper materials. This kind of Glue that is made from Styro can be used in Paper materials, in woods and also in the roof of our houses.

The Styro that we need in this study can be found everywhere. This study is very important in our environment. It lessens the Styro that are in our environment that contributes to Global Warming.
