Abstract: In this experiment we are trying to see how long it takes to smell perfume within 10 feet. My hypothesis is that when you squirt perfume twice it will take less than one minute to smell the perfume. I believe that the brand does matter because some brands make their perfume scent stronger than others. The brand may also affect how long it takes to defuse in the air because of how strong the scent is.
Procedure: Before we did our experiment we needed to gather our materials. We needed to gather tape, four different perfumes and a timer. During this experiment we needed to measure out ten feet and put tape at the end of each side. We had Mrs. Neuman at one end and the class at the other end. Mrs. Neuman would take a perfume bottle and stood at the end of the tape. She would squirt the perfume twice and we would time how long it would take to smell the perfume. Some people used their devices to time how long it took to smell the perfume. We did this procedure three times for each of the perfumes. We would have done this procedure four times but one of the perfumes clogged up when we tried to use it. When we got our time for how long it would take for us to smell the perfume we recorded our data. After we got all of our data we put the results onto a chart.
Data: Brand Two squirts (Yes or No) Took to diffuse across 10 feet
Honey Do Yes 18 seconds
Be delicious Yes 15 seconds
JLO --------- -----------
Pods of Vanilla Yes 8 seconds
Conclusion: In the end it would take around 15 to 30 seconds to smell the perfume. Some of the perfumes were stronger than others so we had to step out of the room for a while. My hypothesis was correct that you would smell the perfume in less than one minute. Also that it does depend on the brand of because some perfume company’s make their perfume than others. I found out the depending on the brand the amount of perfume that is squired may be more than other because of the size of hole in the nozzle. On the chart the Pods of Vanilla was the strongest smelling perfume to smell and it took the shortest amount of time to smell.
