Question: Why will hot water cool down quicker when you have a large surface area?
I’ve been doing a science experiment using different sized beakers, and the biggest beaker with the hot water in cooled down the quickest because it had more surface area than the other beakers and I would like to know why?
Answer: large surface area means more exposure to colder air, therefore makes it cool faster.

Question: Need fast help with a Volcano experiment ten points!?
Me and my friend have to do the volcano experiment for a science fair. We already tried lots of mixes but they wont explode over the top. All that happens is the bottle fizzes up. We need a mix that will explode without having to shake it or stir it. we already tried baking soda, vinegar, dish soap, warm water, and food colouring. Please help!
Answer: Baking soda, Vinegar etc are things of the past, though its safe. I am not sure if you can lay your hands on a chemical called Ammonium Dichromate, which when burnt produces a dazzling volcano. It has been used in classes as well for demonstration. Try this link…

Question: Where can I find homework help?
I have read a lot of thoughts on how much homework is appropriate for a 4th grade. From the sounds of it we are right on track 1-1.5 hrs a night. I think it’s it ridiculous but it is what it is. Unfortunately I have trouble helping him with his homework at times because I need a refresher myself. Is there any good homework help online for 4th graders for free?
