Fair test and rusting project 2

Today (The 18th of July) 5/6B went into the science lab to start conducting their fair test and rusting project. This is where we work in partners to try and find a way to prevent rusting. My partner and I are using 3 different types of oil.

We are using our knowledge of the 4 states of matter to conduct our experiments. My partner and I soaked 3 nails in the 3 different types of oil for just over 2 hours on then put them in salty water to see if the water had any effect.

If you would like to know the materials we used or any other information please look a the links below:Rusting shopping list   Preventing rust by Oil POE
