House Insulation Experiment

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

House Insulation Experiment Aim: The aim of this experiment is to find out which of the following: Loft insulation, cavity wall insulation and no insulation, will keep the most heat inside a beaker over a period of time of twenty minutes. Prediction: My prediction will be that the control beaker (the one with no insulation) ...read more.

Middle

With another one, we put a polystyrene lid over the top, and left one on its own (the control). * We took a jug of hot water, and poured the same amount of water in each beaker. We looked at the temperature from the thermometer before we put it in, to see the room temperature. We then put a thermometer in each beaker at the same time to make it a fair test. ...read more.

Conclusion

* After twenty minutes, when we took the final temperature, we had to look at how much the temperature had dropped before we finished the experiment. Results: (on average out of three lots of results) Conclusion: My prediction was right. The control beaker lost the most amount of heat in the twenty minutes; it dropped by 22 C. Then the loft insulation dropped by 20 C, and the wall insulation dropped by 17 C, making it the best way to stop heat energy from escaping a house.
