Rainbow Fire Data Analysis

Postby jenriquez2013 » Thu Oct 25, 2012 3:21 pm

Hello
I am doing the Rainbow Fire project (Link: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Phys_p058.shtml)
Well my partner and I want to know ways we can analyze the data (the pictures of the different flame colors). I'm wondering if:
1. is it possible to express the data through charts or graphs?
2. if we can express data through charts or graphs, how should we do it?
Thank you for taking the time to read this. :)

What a great question!
A possibility for you to be able to use graphs and charts is that you could do multiple trials and then record the number of times you get a certain color. The charts could be frequency charts.
You could record the number of times you got a certain color and put that in a bar graph.
Please let me know if that helps/if you need more help!

Hello again! My apologies for answering for the wrong project.
I cannot find the procedure for this project then. Could you please help me and describe it a bit to me and then maybe I could answer your question?
