## Introduction

In this experiment, we will be exploring evaporation through colors to determine the kind of color that helps in evaporating water more efficiently.

We hypothesized that the red plastic would work efficiently in evaporating water.

## Aim

To find what color of plastic among, red, black, purple, and clear help in evaporating water more efficiently.

## Theory

The plastic used in food containers is very thin and has less density. Its molecule does not hold much heat. When the water evaporates from the container, its drops quickly cool down the plastic, which lowers the rate of evaporation.

Plastic Packaged Food

## Requirements

1. Four Plastic Containers

2. Sixteen Cups of Water

2. One Small Cup

4. Six Tablespoons of Dirt

5. Tape

6. One Sheet of Colored Plastic

7. One Quarter for Weight

8. Notebook

## Procedure

Step 1: Take four plastic containers.

Step 2: Put sixteen cups of water and six tablespoons of dirt inside each container.

Step 3: Cover each container with one sheet of colored plastic.

Step 4: Use one-quarter as weight on each of the containers.

## Observation

We observed that the clear plastic worked more efficiently.

## Result

Our hypothesis was wrong; in which we assumed that the red plastic would work efficiently because of being translucent and dark shade, but our observation showed that the clear plastics worked more efficiently.

## Precaution

1. Record the observation precisely.

2. Take help in building containers.

## Conclusion

In this experiment of exploring evaporation through colors, we have discovered a plastic color that can be used effectively for evaporating water.

Q.1 What was the aim of your experiment?

ANS. We aimed to determine the color of plastic that can be used effectively for evaporating water.

ANS. We hypothesized that red plastic would work effectively in water evaporation because of its translucent and dark color.

Q.3 Which color of plastic can be used to help water evaporation?

ANS. Clear plastic works effectively in helping water evaporation.
