|What is the effect invisible ink has on snow.
|What was the purpose of your experiment? Provide a brief description of what you were hoping to learn, discover, or study.:
|I was wondering what effect invisible ink has on snow.
|What was your hypothesis?:
|That it would melt the snow, because it was an acid and the snow would change color because of the lemon inside.
|What materials did you use in your experiment? List them all.:
|Invisible ink pen, snow. ALERT: THIS EXPERIMENT CAN ONLY HAPPEN IN WINTER.
|What procedure was followed? Provide a brief description of the steps you followed during your experiment.:
|I drew on the snow with an invisible ink pen and watched.
|What were the results of your experiment?:
|It worked. The snow melted and changed color. It also shone brighter when the black light was shining at it.
|What is your conclusion after conducting the experiment? Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect?:
|The invisible ink has an effect on the snow; some of it works like actual paper, some don’t. My hypothesis was correct except for the part that you could still see the glow after.
|Spend a few minutes learning about the scientific principles involved in your experiment. Write 3-4 sentences about what you learned and how it relates to your experiment.:
|The snow melted because the invisible ink was acidic. It also got dyed yellow because it was made from lemon. It worked like actual paper because it glowed even more when the black light was shining on it.
