The Law Elasticity Of Cold Temperature

Table one (which contain 0 degrees) can clearly prove that our hypothesis was supported, the law elasticity states that when cold temperature is applied to a rubber band it will expand meaning the less elastic constant; this worked a bit the opposite in our case. Take note that human error could have played a large part in this experiment. 100 g in test 1, 2 and 3 is rather odd as the elasticity of the rubber band is decreasing in value: it starts at 0.4 and ends up in 0; this should be the complete opposite. This common problem keeps occurring until 250g for test 1, 2 and 3 where the value is the same for each test; this is rather odd as the value should increase. T4 (70 degrees) is the hottest temperature we tested. This follows a…show more content…
The smoothest of all our tests was the one with the room temperatures, on this day one of our group members were absent but we managed to achieve to work effectively, this is mainly because of its simplicity. This experiment had many faults in it. It had vary results and the law that when hot temperature is applied in to rubber bands it will contract did abide with many of our results, same goes to the law about cold temperature where the rubber band expands. It can be assumed that human error played a large factor in the results of this experiment; we did keep it controlled by letting only one person measure the x value of the rubber band. This way only one judgement will be written down in our results rather than multiple which will confuse. I also believe we rushed and did too much one our first go with temperature. There were four members on the group and we had to manage it so that one person records the results while another does measuring, which leaves with only two people managing all the temperatures, this included managing the hot plate, the ice cubes, constantly checking the temperature for four beaker, which I believe was a too big of a burden to carry which resulted in odd result. It also needed to be noted that this had to be repeated three times for each temperature which means it was a total of 12 different experiments in less than 70 minutes with only two people managing all the critical
