The idea of our experiment was to see how long it took for different scents to
diffuse throughout the air. Also does the brand effect how long it will take? My
first hypothesis was that it would take a minute at least till we could smell
the scent. My second hypothesis was that it wouldn’t affect the time it took to
smell it if the brand was different.
Our first step was to create a graph so that we could write down data. We also
marked out an area of ten feet with duct tape. After that we took out our
timers/iPod/iPad and set out four body sprays of our teacher’s choice. Our
teacher stood on one side of the tape and we stood on the other. Right when she
sprayed we started our timers. She sprayed twice with the first spray. Right
when we could smell it we stopped out timers. We took our result and marked it
down on the graph we made in the beginning. One of our sprays didn't work. We continued the same procedure the
three that were left.
BRAND OF BODY SPRAY 2 SQUIRTS OF BODY SPRAY TIME TOOK TO SMELL
Green Apple Yes 18 seconds
Vanilla, Vanilla Yes 15 seconds
Honey-Do Melon Yes 8 seconds
CONCLUSION: My hypothesis was that it would take at least
a minute for the scents to diffuse through the air. I was proven wrong as you
can see in my data. Also that the brand wouldn’t affect how long it would take
to smell I was proven correct. The brand didn’t matter because you could make
the same perfume and just put a different brand on it. It was because of how
strong it smelled and how it was made not the brand.
