Trial Number 4

Trial Purpose:

To measure amount of cleaner delivered per spray.

Date Run:

01/31/2018

Experiment Procedure:

Three clean beakers were pre-weighed.  The selected cleaner was then held directly above the opening of the beaker and sprayed into each beaker for 2 seconds. The beakers were then reweighed and delivery amounts were calculated. A second test was conducted while holding the aerosol can upright and tipping the beaker to collect the cleaning product
