### Joe,Tom,and Max are doing an experiment on how many times a person blinks in 1 minute. What tools do they need for their experiment?

• A.

Stopwatch

• B.

A snack and a drink

• C.

A test tube

A. Stopwatch
Explanation
For their experiment on how many times a person blinks in 1 minute, Joe, Tom, and Max need a stopwatch. A stopwatch is necessary to accurately measure the time and count the number of blinks within a minute. The other options, a snack and a drink, and a test tube, are not relevant or necessary for this particular experiment.

### Jake and Max are experimenting on what happens when they add a whole bag of Mentos in a 2 liter of both Coke and Pepsi combined. What can you predict will happen?

• A.

It will do nothing

• B.

It will burst into a giant explosion

• C.

It will puff out smoke

• D.

It will catch on fire

• E.

It will turn solid

B. It will burst into a giant explosion
Explanation
When Mentos are added to Coke or Pepsi, a chemical reaction occurs. The rough surface of the Mentos candy provides nucleation sites for the carbon dioxide gas in the soda to rapidly escape, causing a rapid release of gas. This gas release creates a high amount of pressure inside the bottle, leading to an explosive eruption of soda. Therefore, when a whole bag of Mentos is added to a 2-liter bottle of Coke and Pepsi combined, it is likely to burst into a giant explosion.

It begins with asking questions to identify a problem or topic of interest, followed by collecting information or data related to the topic. Then, a hypothesis is formed, which is a proposed explanation or prediction based on the collected information. Next, a plan is made to conduct an experiment to test the hypothesis. The experiment is carried out, and observations are made to gather data. Based on the observations, a conclusion is formed to determine if the hypothesis is supported or not. Finally, the results and findings are communicated to others.
