Lab #4 – Fun in the Shower
Put a ceramic mug and a metal pot or dish in the freezer and wait for a half hour….
Now get the shower going as hot as it will go; really steam up the bathroom. Keep the fan off and the bathroom door closed. After the bathroom is good and steamy take the cold items from your freezer into the bathroom. What do you observe in terms of condensation? How does the condensation on the ceramic mug compare with the condensation on the metal pot?
Now try it with the ceramic mug and metal pot starting at room temperature.
Now try it with the ceramic mug and metal pot after they have been heated up in the oven at 300 degrees for a half hour.
