Thermodynamic Ice Cream

1373 Words6 Pages
Introduction : Ice cream! We all love it, but do you know the thermodynamics behind it? Thermodynamics is the physical science that deals with the relations between heat and other forms of energy. Other forms of energy such as: mechanical, electrical, or chemical. We are completing this research project to understand how our favorite past time treat can have a more scientific background and how heat flows from a warmer object to a cooler object. As aforementioned thermodynamics deals with a lot of forms of energy, so in this case we would be using chemical. The goal of this project is to observe the thermodynamic process whi8ch will ultimately lead to the creation of ice cream.
In this group assignment we are conducted to test how thermodynamic

Using raspberry flavor of course. A survey on what type of ice cream out classmates/peers prefer the most is what would be done after the ice creams are made. Since it’s hard to actually make ice cream from scratch of from the plant itself, we’re going to use the flavor and some of the actual fruit. The survey would include the taste of both ice creams (is it sweet, salty, sour, savory, etc) and the texture (is it thick or soft). These are the things that be compared amongst our…show more content…
Methodology Research Design

II. Sampling (Information about your survey) We know how ice cream is supposed to taste, feel, etc so that would obviously be tested. We are choosing different grade levels so we can see if the ice cream itself does affect how old you are and how often you eat ice cream.

Instrument #1

There wouldn’t be any instruments used in this project. This project is only using a survey and wouldn’t take much days to actually conduct the experiment.

Data Collection and Analysis Procedures
The survey would be done in homeroom 118. There is a mixture of 9th graders, 10th graders, Year 1’s and Year 2’s. We would collect the surveys and analyze it and see the difference between everyone’s opinion and the similarities as well. From this, we would see if thermodynamic ice cream is any different from regular ice cream and the science behind ice cream itself. Protection of Human Rights We would make sure the ice cream is edible of course and see if anyone is allergic to raspberry. If anyone in homeroom 118 is allergic to the fruit/ice cream, we would ask someone who isn’t to take the
