AWARDS:Honorable Mention of the Virtual Summer Science Fair Contest Super Science Fair Projects

My experiment is about comparing the specific heat of ingredients in a mixture. The experiment combines two liquids with different specific heats and analyzes the mixture. My experiment uses 2 thermometers and special equipment that are used for amateur lab studies. The goal of the experiment is to see if combining two liquids will produce another liquid that has a higher or lower specific heat.

Question: When combining two liquids with a high specific heat, does the resulting liquid have a higher, lower, or the average specific heat than either of the liquids that formed it?

Hypothesis: Science Fair Projects about Heat Retention
If two liquids are combined then the resulting liquids specific heat will be average of the two liquids.

Purpose:
The purpose of my experiment is to see if the specific heat of liquids depends on what it contains. I am doing this because keeping heat in foods and liquid is very important. If there is a basic liquid that can increase the specific heat of an object then it can help us in times of need.

Variable – The materials mixed (refer to #2 on procedure)

Constants
C1: The same amount of liquid used for mixing
C2: The same starting temperature for all of the mixtures.
C3: The same two thermometers used throughout the experiment.

TRY TO AVOID AND KEEP SAFE.
USE TONGS WHILE HANDLING THE HOT TIN CAN.
DO NOT PLACE THE HOT TIN CAN HEAR ANYTHING FLAMMABLE. DO NOT PLACE THE HOT PLATE NEAR ANY THING FLAMMABLE
