Will you please let me know if you think my Problem and Hypothesis is what my teacher is looking for? This is my first science project and I want to achieve an A. I am testing how heat input can affect the velocity of the ocean currents. PROBLEM: Does an increase in water temperature affect the velocity of ocean currents?
My HYPOTHESIS: Increases in heat with relation to rising temperatures within ocean waters will affect the velocity of the currents. Do you think this is a wll written problem and hypothesis???

  1. No. You have to test your hypothesis. How in the world would you do that?
