In this lab activity students figure out what happens when heat is added to water. This basic lab allows students to use thermometers to record the temperature of water in Celsius as it is being heated.
At each lab station, students will need a beaker of water, a thermometer, and a Bunsen burner. Please use extreme caution when using the Bunsen burner. Students will take the temperature of the water at the starting time and then add heat. Students will continue taking the temperature of the water every minute for five minutes. At the end students will draw conclusions about what happens to water when heat is added.
