What’s in the motion? 8.10A Inquiry Lab This lab should provide you with valuable insight in to a convection cell. Supplies: Ruler glitter 250mL beaker ice cold water hot plate thermometers the 250 mL timer goggles the hot mitt/tongs Procedure: 1. Pour ½ cm of glitter in to the bottom of beaker. 2. Next, pour 200 mL of tap water(H2O) into beaker. 3. Place the beaker on the hot plate. 4. We will take the initial temperature of the water and record it. Each time you take the temperature you will use two thermometers one just below the surface and the other as close to the bottom without touching the beaker. 5. You will keep the thermometers in the H2O for 15 seconds before recording the temperature. Take the thermometers out each time. 6. Turn on the hot plate to medium or medium-high heat. 7. Record temperatures from both thermometers every minute for 10 minutes. 8. Turn off hot plate and answer questions while allowing materials to cool down. Make an observation after letting it cool for 10-15 minutes. 9. Remove beaker using tongs. Discard of sparkle water into the waste beaker, rinse out your beaker, and leave lab station clean and dry. Data Collection: Time 0m 1m Temp top Temp bottom Analysis: 1. Using the beaker below, illustrate what the inquiry lab showed. use color. 2. How does a convection current move? 2m 3m 4m 5m 6m 7m 8m 9m 10m 3. Discuss how this concept is directly related to air movement/water movement?
