Aim: To investigate the heat loss of the insulating materials, bubble wrap, cotton wool, blanket and foil Introduction: I will carry out this investigation by measuring the temperature of hot water in beakers insulated with these materials. Naturally the insulated beaker with the warmest water will have prevented the most heat loss. To understand how materials prevent heat loss I need to look at the three ways in which heat can be transferred or lost to the surroundings. One of the ways is conduction. This is when heat energy is transported along an object from the...
was if was available to me, I would have used a data logger with temperature probe. This would have given me very accurate readings every second. I could have also used polystyrene lids to reduce heat loss by convection in the beakers.

To extend by investigation I could have used different beakers like copper cans to see how the material of the beaker affects the rate of heat loss. In addition I could look at the effect of the amount of layers of material insulating the beaker as well as looking at different volumes of boiling water.
