Water Molecules
BCR: Which Towel?
A student asks a testable question: “Which brand of paper towel absorbs the greatest volume of water?” Design an investigation to provide an answer for the student.
Be sure to include • the materials needed. • a numbered procedure. • the independent and dependent variables. • important data that will answer the question. • ways to help ensure the accuracy of the results.
Materials: Several paper towels, a flat dish, bottled water, a thermometer, a tong, a ruler, and an scale,

Procedure:
(1) Weigh the sick + water
(2) Measure each sample of paper towel to be tested to assure a common size and weight.
(3) Measure the temperature of the water.
(4) Add the towel sample to the water for a period of time using a consistent method.
(5) Remove the sample from the water with a tong and allow excess water to leave the sample.
(6) Measure the weight of both the wet paper towel sample and the flat dish
Independent and Dependent Variables:
The dependent variable is the water absorbing capacity of the paper samples, and the independent variable is the weight of water captured by each paper sample.
Important Data: The weight of the water trapped by each paper sample.
Ways to Ensure Accuracy: Each measurement should be checked for accuracy at least twice by one or more observers, and each paper towel brand should be tested 2-3 times, using new paper samples each trial.

BCR: The Balloon
A balloon is placed over an empty flask. The flask is heated on a hot plate and then cooled in a container of ice water. The effect on the balloon is shown in the diagram below:

[pic]
Explain this observation based on the Kinetic Molecular Theory.
In your response, be sure to • describe the effect of temperature on the kinetic energy of the gas particles. • describe the motion of the gas particles. • describe the effects of this change on the pressure and volume of the gas sample.
When temperature

    Rembac states that paper towels are porous and permeable, which means they have small spaces that liquid and air can pass through, and liquid is able to rise through a property of water called cohesion. In this paper towel experiment, Rembac will be testing which brand of paper towel has the highest rate of capillarity, or ability to absorb water into its many spaces. Rembac`s procedure cut out 3x8 inches of each different brands of paper towel and observe any differences in the paper towels and take note. Then she fills each beaker half was and dips the strips of paper towels about an inch in the water and uses a marker to see how far up the water was absorbed on the strip, and repeats 4 to 6 times with each brand. (Rembac,…

    Procedures In the experiment with just tap water it included one hundred milliliters of tap water. Then fifty more milliliters of water. Water was added with an eyedropper until the surface appears to be rounded or about to pour over. Then, the paper clips are dropped in the water until the water spills over. In the second experiment with soapy water it uses one hundred milliliters of water. Then, forty-eight more milliliters of water. Water is also added with an eyedropper until the surface appears to be rounded. Add paper clips until it spills over. Then record the results.…

    Experiment: See lab sheet. In this experiment there was no control. The independent variables in this experiment are the time, and the amount of sand and water put into the cans. The dependent variable is the degrees (in Celsius) that air, water, and sand get to. The time, and amount of sand and water is the independent variable because it does not have to rely on anything.
