Compare Insulation Properties?

To test the insulation properties of each paper coffee cup, black coffee equivalent is poured into each cup type. (This is an extreme test starting at a higher than average temperature of 93°c) The temperature at the outer surface of the cup is measured every minute. This is the ‘holding temperature’, the heat that your hand feels when holding your coffee. A comfortable holding temperature is 65°c. This graph shows the difference in holding temperature for each cup type.
