written by John Roeder
This student activity is designed to study energy flow and conservation. The rate at which the temperature of water increases in different containers is used to explore the insulating properties of the containers. Students are provided an introduction to heat flow and insulating properties of materials. Included are notes for instructors wishing to use this material.

This activity is part of a PTRA manual on Energy.
