For this project we went outside every day and measured the surface temperature of short grass, white concrete, asphalt, and water. We used our infrared thermometer and measured the temperature each time. We expected to see little to no change in the temperature of the water over the course of the weeks and we expected to see the biggest change in the asphalt since black absorbs the heat from the sun. We found that our hypothesis was right.
