I am building a project on what absorbs most heat. Do you think the heat will stay in a shoe box at 100 degrees Fahrenheit?
Question Date: 2007-01-30
Answer 1:

No object, no matter its construction, will be able to keep heat in indefinitely. If your container is air-tight, then heat will escape more slowly, but heat will still escape. You will have to take this into account in your experiment.
