State Lamont's Hypothesis and determine if the hypothesis was supported by the data. Lamont knew that water made things look larger. He wondered what other liquids such as alcohol and glycerin would do. Lamont thought a pencil would look larger in the thicker liquid (glycerin), followed by water, and then alcohol. In the experiment he rated the increase in pencil size from 1 to 10, with 10 as the largest. His rankings were 7 for glycerin, 5 for water, and 2 for alcohol.

    Objects in liquids look larger and thicker, liquids with more viscosity will look larger.

    Explanation:

    The hypothesis were correct because at the beginning Lamont wanted to compare how it will look objects in different liquids. Also he thought that if the liquid was thicker (like glycerin) the objects will look larger.

    Testing different liquids from the thicker to the thinner (glycerin, water, alcohol) his results were similar to the initial hypotesis that he state.

    Hope this is a useful info.
