RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
The different types of soup containers and the temperature of the soup served as the main components in arriving with these results. Through the use of scientific method, the results gathered.
The Initial Temperature of the Soup
The table below shows the initial temperature of soup.
Temperature of Soup
99°C
Table 1. Initial Temperature of Soup The temperature of the soup that was put in different types of containers was 99 degrees Celsius or 99°C. This temperature made the soup that was used to boil. The soup used is a vegetable soup that was not that watery. Vegetable soup was chosen because it is easy to make and it was available during the experiment being performed. The reason why the temperature of the

This container was able to keep the soup hot for a long time and the ceramic container was not that far off. Out of all the commercial containers, the metal container emerged as the best one to keep soups hot. Eventhough metal containers are good conductors of heat, it could still retain heat because of its size and thickness. According to Tom Henderson, 2017, the thicker or longer the object to receive heat, the more heat will be lost but if the insulation is thicker, then the less heat will be lost. According to Heba Soffar, 2015, heat is a thermal energy that flows from a warmer region to a much colder or cooler…show more content…
The plastic container performed the worst because at the first hour, the temperature dropped to 33 degrees Celsius compared to 49 degrees Celsius of homemade container. The way the the temperature dropped in plastic container was fast after one hour; however, after few hours later, the temperature dropped slowly. It was not the best when it comes to storing heat of food, specifically soup. According to Tom Henderson, 2017, the thicker or longer the object to receive heat, the more heat will be lost but if the insulation is thicker, then the less heat will be lost. According to Heba Soffar, 2015, heat is a thermal energy that flows from a warmer region to a much colder or cooler
