Candle Thermodynamics


What is the effect of burning different numbers of candles on the water level in a pan of water when a jar is placed over the candles?


(Summarize what you know about the burning candles you observed and what happened when a jar was placed over the candle.)


(Predict what will happen to the water level when various numbers of candles are burned. Be sure to include a reason for your prediction)


(List all materials necessary)


(Write a complete step-by-step description of the procedure to perform your experiment. Be sure to include all of the aspects of experimental design you have learned so far.)


(Record all data on a data table. Include that data table and any calculations and graphs in this section)


(Write your conclusion in this section. Be sure to follow all guidelines for writing conclusions to experiments and include data and an explanation of how the data supports your conclusion)
