CAPPILARY COMPASITY

Purpose: The purpose of the project is to find out which of the soils hold the most water.

Hypothesis: I think the Pete moss will hold more water than the sand because it is a lot rockier and heavier than the sand.

Materials:

• Gym Shirt
• Sand
• Pete moss
• 2 Plastic tubes
• Measuring cups
• Water
• String
• 2 Plastic cups
Procedure:
1. - First we tied the gym shirt to the bottom of one tube.
2. - We filled the first tube with ¼ sand and the second tube with ¼ Pete moss.
3. - We filled each tube with 75 ml of water.
4. - Tied both the tubes to a wire and raised the wire.
5. - We waited for 15 min while the water dripped into the cups.
6. - Then after 15 min then we took the water that was left in the tubes and measured each tubes amount of water.
Observation:

Sandy Soil (ml) Pete Moss (ml)

Water Poured Into Tube 75 ml 75 ml

Equal Amount Of Water Held In Soil 25 ml 30 ml
