Experiment Precautions

  1. Nov 12, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    An experiment is carried out to study the rate of cooling with an apparatus consisting of a water-filled beaker sealed with a two-hole stopper with one thermometer and one stirrer. The beaker is put on a wooden liner. State two precautionary steps to be taken so that the variation of temperature of hot water gives a good result.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Stir the water with constant strength. Ensure that the thermometer is fully immersed in the water without touching the beaker.
    Is putting on a diaphragm to reduce heat loss to the surrounding a precautionary step?
    Is there any others?
