Topic: Hypothesis on growing plants
June 17, 2019 / By Rayner Question:
I am home schooled through k12 and I have to do a science experiment. I decided to do it on plants. I was going to grow bean plants and water one with an ice cube and the other plant with normal tap water. Would this be a good experiment? I looked up online and could not find anything about ice cubes making plants grow faster.

Not as is. What is your hypothesis? That the temperature of the water changes the growth rate?
You think the ice will make it grow faster? No, it won't have any effect at all. The ice cube melts in a few minutes.

You did not list the results.
Placing a wet cloth on a thermometer and blowing on it would make the temperature go down.
This is the principle in a sling psychronmeter [weather instrument used to measure amount of moisture in the air]
Short answer: YES, anything that has not been done before is great!
What grade are you in? In the end, it really only matters what you enjoy to do!
All plants have a certain temperature they grow best at, even the water temp affects growth. Althought, currently I can not think of any plant that would grow better in sub-zero temperatures. Science experiments are meant to literally "experiment" as in, do things no one has done before. So if you can't find information on it, that's a great sign towards the overall success. Also, if you prove that cold temps are better for growing certain plants (which is almost guaranteed to be incorrect) you would win awards.
Roughly what grade you would be in:
Grade 11-12: Extremely mediocre in my opinion, I've had to do many science experiments and they involved at least a week of setting up and for-planning. Sorry.
Grade 9-10: Fists well actually, and is very similar to projects teachers would assign in these grades.
Gradde 7-8: Fists perfectly.
Science Fair: anything goes here, but remember, there are sometimes VERy advanced projects, you would probably not get an award.

Honestly I would have to say no. If you want to do a quality project then I would really suggest researching the plant you intend to use and then after you have a decent under standing of the organism think of your experiment, and formulate a hypothesis that is supported by the research.

Wanna stop fire, by poring "magical, unvisable stuff" on it?
you need: vinegar and Baking powder
(Which will be used to make the gas co2)
You'll poor co2 over the lighted candle
there you go.
Easy to do, for an explanation +demonstration of this very easy experiment:
and let the gas in the balloon after the chemical reaction escape in a controlled way in a glass or wathever. No need to turn the glass upside down, CO2 is heavier than air.
poor you "invisable water" (actualy a gass (co2) of course) over the candle

pepsin 50 to 300 µg pepsin/mL
amylase i dont think you'll even need since amylase works best at pH 6-7 so i dont think it will even do any effect at pH 2-3 which you'll more likely to have in that solution.
