Problem Statement: Does the temperature of the water affect how much sugar will dissolve in the water?

Hypothesis: If sugar is added to water at a different temperature, then the sugar in the hot water will dissolve fastest.

Materials:
Sugar
Water
Beakers
Spoon
Hot Plate
Thermometers

Test Variables: Temperature of water is measured in Celsius (C°)

Outcome Variables: How much sugar dissolves in different temperatures of water.

Controlled Variables:
Same amount of water
Same size of beakers
Same type of sugar
Force used to stir solution same spoon.

Research: Look up solubility of sugar and how it is affected by the temperature of water.

Procedures:
1. Gathered the materials needed to conduct this experiment.
2. Poured 200mL of room temperature water into a beaker, then measure the temperature of the water.
3. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar into the water.
4. Stir the sugar for 8 seconds until to dissolve the sugar. If it’s not dissolved stir for another 8 seconds.
5. Write the results that got tested in the 3 different trials for room temperature water.
6. Pour 200mL of water into a beaker, and add ice to make the water cold. Then remove the ice from the water.
7. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar into the water.
8. Stir the sugar for 8 seconds until to dissolve the sugar. If it’s not dissolved stir for another 8 seconds.
9. Write the results that got tested in the 3 different trials for cold water.
10. Pour 200mL of water into a beaker, than heat the water with a hot plate.
11. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar into the water.
12. Stir the sugar for 8 seconds until to dissolve the sugar. If it’s not dissolved stir for another 8 seconds.
13. Write the results that got tested in the 3 different trials for hot water.

Abstract: In my project, “Dissolving Sugar” the problem was which temperature of water could dissolve sugar the fastest. I predicted that, if the sugar was added to water at 3 different temperatures; room temperature, cold, and hot water, then the hot water will dissolve the sugar the fastest. The procedures I followed was first gathering the materials than pouring 200mL of water into the beaker, adding 1 tablespoon full of sugar to the water. Next we stirred the sugar for 8 seconds until it dissolved. After, we wrote down our results. And then pretty much, we followed the same steps for the cold water and hot water. The data we collected in the first trial was the temperature of the room water was 22°celsius and the amount of sugar dissolved in the water was 2 tablespoons. In the second trial the data we collected was the temperature of the room water was 23°celsius and the amount of sugar dissolved in the water was 2 tablespoons. In the third trial the data we collected was the temperature of the room water was 22.5°celsius and the amount of sugar dissolved in the water was 3 tablespoons. The average temperature was 22.5 and the average amount of sugar dissolved was 2.3 table spoons. Then when we measure the cold water, the data we collected in all three trials it was all the same. The temperature of the cold water was 7°celsius and the amount of sugar dissolved in the water…
