Why A Balloon Will Be Affected By Temperatures

The experiment will prove that the sizes of balloons can be affected by temperatures whether very cold or extremely hot. I want to do this experiment to see whether a balloon will grow or shrink when I put it in the freezer. I’m looking to see much the sizes change when the balloon is in the freezer as opposed to when leave it out at room temperature. My research will be based on what I will see, books , and a few websites. I will be measuring all four of my balloons daily. I will also be recording my data for fourteen days onto a table. My hypothesis states that if a balloon is in the freezer as opposed to leaving it out at room temperature the balloon in the freezer will expand more than the one at room temperature. In the following…show more content…
SI defines the Kelvin scale in two different points: 1) Absolute zero and 2) the triple point temperature of water. Absolute zero is the lowest possible temperature. It is assigned a value of 0 K. 0 K is equivalent to absolute zero. The triple point of water occurs at 0.06 atmosphere of pressure and at a temperature that is defined as 0.01 degrees celsius or 273.16 K. That is how we know that all units of temperature are related. (World Book Encyclopedia. Kieran Mullen). The other two units of temperature are Celsius and Fahrenheit. The lowest temperature in Celsius is zero degrees celsius which is also absolute zero for both Celsius and Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit is the most common of the units of temperature. It is the one that is mostly used in thermometers. We use Fahrenheit to measure the temperature of most things such as food, liquids, and many other things. We also use in the refrigerator and microwave. One degree Fahrenheit is equivalent to -17.2222 degrees celsius. One degree celsius is equivalent to 33.8 degrees celsius. The World Book encyclopedia 2013. (2013). Chicago, IL: World Book. In these following paragraphs, the paragraphs will be about about balloons. There are three different types of balloons such as gas balloons, hot-air balloons, and sport balloons. According to Russell Lee, gas balloons can be filled with gases such as hydrogen, helium, natural gas, or any other gases that are lighter than air. Hydrogen is the
