Temperature of the sun practical - Draft Results: Mass of plastic bag with water: 0.325kg �0.001 Area of plastic bag: 0.368m� �0.005 Initial temperature of water: 26�C �0.5 Time of water left under the sun (s) �0.5 Temperature of water (�C) ...read more.


Therefore, the experiment does not seem to be successful and the results obtained are inaccurate. Evaluation: Limitations Suggestions - The plastic bag is not stabilized on the ground; it leads to the spill of water. This will make the result inaccurate as the mass is changing - Use a container which allows the thermometer to be placed in the water ...read more.


This will lead to an inaccurate value of area of plastic bag - Use a fixed shape box to contain water which allows the area to be measured accurately - The black water is more concentrated at the bottom which may cause unequal absorption of heat by the water - Use a container which has a fixed shape and even surface ...read more.

  2. Researching water turbine designs.

    The turbine casing, with the runner fully immersed in water, must be strong enough to withstand the operating pressure. Francis and Kaplan turbines belong to this category. The water pressure is converted into kinetic energy before entering the runner. The kinetic energy is in the form of a high-speed jet
