Would heat transfer be affected with
little or no gravity?
Experiment # 2: Heat Convection
This heat experiment will be about investigating heating and cooling effects from natural air convection, based upon heat transfer due to movement of air.
What we noticed...
- In the flight data the lines don't intersect like the ground data.
- The flight data was squiggles in the lines for the temperature. The ground data doesn't have squiggles in the lines for the temperature.
- The temperatures aren't close to each other. For example, in the flight data the lowest temperature is 96.5 degrees Fahrenheit and in the ground data it's 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In the flight data the temperature drops by 1 degree Fahrenheit and in the ground data the temperature doesn't go down.
We think that it does because on the flight data results the range of heat on the flight data's bottom sensor is from 96.5 to 96.52 degrees Fahrenheit while on the ground data's bottom sensor it stays at 74 degrees Fahrenheit.
