1 Science Fair Project Does Mint Cool Things Dvery own Davis Environment-friendly Mrs. PaceRichmond County Technical Career Magnet High School
2 Statement of the ProblemDoes mint, recognized for its cooling result, really lower temperatures, or is it simply a sensation?
3 Research The ancient Egyptians, among the the majority of medically-advanced primitive cultures, grew and also offered peppermint leaves for indigestion. The prehistoric Romans and Greeks likewise took peppermint to soothe their stomachs. The primary energetic ingredient in Peppermint is Menthol, which is an organic compound that produces a cooling sensation once used to the mouth or skin. It also acts as a mild anesthetic Mint, likewise well-known as mentha, is actually a genus or group of around plant species, including peppermint and spearmint. Mint has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food.
4 Variables Independent Variable: Altoids, Mentos, Tic-Tacs, Ice Breakers, Sprig of Mint Leaf Dependent Variable: Temperature of the water Control or Constant Variable: Water through no mint product
5 Hypothesis If I area mint in a cup of hot water then it will certainly cool much faster than a plain cup of warm water, bereason of its cooling effects.
6 Materials Pack of Mentos, Altoids, Tic Tacs, Ice Breakers and a Sprig of Mint Leaf Six - 8 oz. glasses of warm water Thermometer Pen and also Paper
7 Procedure 1. Get a glass of hot water and also take the temperature with a thermometer. Record this. 2. Place 2 tic tac mints in the glass of warm water and also take the temperature aget. Was tbelow a change? 3. Place even more mints in the glass of hot water 2 at a time and also record whether you watch any kind of adjust at all. I will monitor it for 30 minutes. 4. I will certainly execute the exact same through the other mint items: altoids, mentos, ice breakers, and mint leaf. 5. The various other glass of hot water is to be used as a reference. This is because we know that water cools over time and we desire to make sure that if tbelow is any kind of adjust in temperature, it is not independent of time, but of the mints increasing the cooling procedure. 6. Record your outcomes. Any changes?
10 Data/Observations Cooling Temperatures of Mints in Water: NameStart Temp Temp 5min 10 min 15 min 20 min 25 min 30 min Hot Water no mint 41.4 4.7 35.6 34.2 33.1 32.6 31.3 Altoids 42.9 Tic Tacs 41.2 39.4 36.1 34.7 34.3 32.2 31.0 Ice breakers 42.7 40.2 38.8 35.5 33.7 32.4 Mentos 39.1 38.1 35.3 34.9 32.1 31.1 Mint Leaves 38.7 37.0 33.5 32.7
11 Conclusion Based upon my hypothesis I tested the affects of different forms of mint commodities. This was to determine if they cooled the water dvery own quicker than enabling it to sit at room temperature and also cool. Each was placed in the warm water and watched for 30 minutes. The temperature was recorded every 5 minutes to identify if the water was cooling off. The manage which was the warm water via no mint at all cooled at a rate of 1 to 6 degrees per 5 minutes. The Mint leaf cooled at a sreduced rate of .3 to 1 level every 5 min. The last results confirmed that over 30 minutes the Tic Tac cooled the a lot of however just .3 degrees much less than the altoid and also hot water. The Tic Tac cooled the fastest of everywhere time via a margin of .3 levels. This did prove my hypothesis that mint does cool water fastest. It didn’t cool it as rapid as I believed it would certainly, yet this was a fun and also amazing project.
