Pre-lab to Lab 9: Critical Thinking and Designing an Experiment Please read the Theory” section in full in order to answer these questions correctly Problem 1 Which of the following are components of critical thinking? (May have multiple right answers) [1 point) A set of information and belief generating and processing skills The habit, based on intellectual commitment, of using information and belief processing skills to guide behavior Acquisition and retention of information for future purpose Possession of a set of skills Use of possessed skills without acceptance and/or understanding the result ) v) v) Problem 2 Example on how critical thinking works! Here is the setup [3 points). Two beakers of water that have the same initial temperature and the same depth of water and are set at the same time on identical hot plates adjusted to the same setting. The beaker in case 2 has a base that is twice the areas as the beaker in case 1. Which beaker of water reaches boiling point in less time, or do they reach boiling point at the same time? Justify your answer in coherent, paragraph-length response. (Below I am even providing you with partial solutionl): A student attempting to respond the above problem writes the following sentences. The sentences are all correct and maie up a full credit response, but the sentences are mixed up and out of logical order. In the blanks next to each sentence, write numbers to put the sentences in appropriate order.(“1” will the first sentence in the paragraph, “8 will be the last). A. The beaker in case 2 has twice the area of the base but the same height, so twice the volume. Tme to boil is inversely proportional to the rate at which thermal energy is transferred to the water C. If 2 has twice the volume, then 2 has twice the mass as Mass Density XVolume. -D’ The beaker in case 2 has twice the area of contact as in Case 1. E. Both beakers of water reach the boiling point at the same temperature. -F. Thermal energy enter beaker 2 twice as fast since it has twice the area. ーG. Time to reach boiling point is directly proportional to the amount of mass of water. -H. Since mass increases time by double, and area of contact reduces the time by half, both effects cancel out
