In conclusion, our results matched our hypothesis, because since we observed the flow rate measurements from lowest to highest, as the molasses would be the most viscous liquid, with the lowest amount of flow rate, and water being the least vicious with the greatest amount of flow rate. Again as clarified our results match the conclusion because our hypothesis states that the fluids with a higher flow rate are less are less dense and the particles have a weaker attraction than in the fluids with a higher attraction of particles and higher density, with the exception of water, which the solid form is less dense.
As explained earlier generally the higher the flow rate, the lower the flow ability of the material. As my hypothesis was resulted in being right for this lab, throughout my observation and results, because as my trials resulted that corn syrup would be the lowest flow rate with trial one stating 41.23 seconds as the flow rate, trail 2 stating 34.
87 seconds as the flow rate, and trial three stating 29.96 seconds as the flow rate. So the average flow rate for corn syrup is 0.33cm/s.
To explain furthermore, following, corn syrup being the least flow rate, molasses would be next with a average flow rate of 0.84cm/s, laundry detergent oil being the average flow rate of 2.28cm/s, dish soap being the average flow rate of 3.38cm/s, maple syrup being the average flow rate of 8.56cm/s, corn oil being the average flow rate of 8.89cm/s, vinegar being the average flow rate of 12.05cm/s, and finally water being the average flow rate of 12.5cm/s, and with trials 1.04 seconds, 0.93 seconds, and 1.03 seconds. As we can also see in our observations, most liquids flow rates change after each trial as the seconds being deducted each trial, with the exception of water and vinegar.
The sources of error, as we did the science lab, are the errors arising from the final measurement, of the amount of liquid in centimeters, the final calculation, that could have taken effect for the liquids, when recording the measurements, and finally the temperature in the room, that might have affected the trials and the average flow rate, resulting to my final calculation. If we were to do this lab again, we could have tried this with a different temperature in the room, to get the results and see if it matches the first experiment, we could try other fluids/liquids and record the trials and the average flow rate, and record my results differently, and use a other graph. If companies or industries were to use this experiment.
