science project

Posted by hazel , Nov 30,2005,22:42       Forum

I am a seventh grade student doing a science project on wood and water. I am using my teachers e-mail adress. I would be very grateful if you could answer some questions for me. My science fair question is What kind of wood absorbs the most water? These are the questions I would like to ask you:
1. What kinds of wood do you think would be the best for this project?

2.Do you think if the woods come from different climates they will absorb more or less water?

3.Why does the shape of the linear cells matter on how wood soaks up water?

4.Does it matter if the water is salt water or not salt water?

5.Will the change of water tempurature affect the rate of absorption?

Thank you for your time and please e-mail my teacher back it will be greatly appreciated.Thank you again.
