This study aims to know the active components of the materials for them to produce an alternative ceramic product. This study will also compare the strength, texture, appearance, and water resistance of the experimental product and commercial product. Sawdust and charcoal ashes have an active component but it is just thrown away or ignored. So the present study is significant for the reason that it might produce a ceramic pots out of sawdust and charcoal ashes. Risk and Safety: Risk Some processes that will be conducted in the study may not be safe if done all alone.
Smoke may be inhaled or intake by the researcher while the experimental product is under the heat process. Safety The researcher must wear protective clothing and is advise to be supervised by an adult Statement of the Objectives: The main purpose of this study is to produce an efficient ceramic pots out of sawdust and charcoal ashes. Specifically, this aims to achieve the following objectives: 1 . To determine the active components of sawdust and charcoal ashes as an alternative ceramic material. 2.
To know if there is a significant difference between the experimental product and the commercial product in terms of: 2. 1 strength; 2. 2 texture and appearance; . 3 and water resistance. 3. TO conclude if there is a significant difference between the efficiency Of the experimental product and commercial product. Statement of the Problem: The main problem of this study is to utilize sawdust and charcoal ashes as an efficient alternative ceramic pots. Specifically, it aims to answer the following specific questions: 1 .
What are the active components of sawdust and charcoal ashes as an alternative ceramic material? 2. Is there a significant 2. 3 and water resistance? 3. Is there a significant difference between the efficiency of the experimental reduce and the commercial product? Hypotheses 1 . There are no active components of sawdust and charcoal ashes as an alternative ceramic material. 2. There is no significant difference between the experimental product and commercial product in terms of: 3.
There is no significant difference between the efficiency of experimental and commercial product. Materials and Equipment: In conducting the study, the researcher will use the following: 1. 5 grams of sawdust, and 1. 5 grams of charcoal ash, and 30 grams of ceramic mud. The equipment that will be used in the study are the following: measuring equipment, containers, and mortar and pestle. General Procedures: The researcher will gather all of the materials that will be needed in conducting the experiment The 1. 5 grams of sawdust, and 1. Grams of charcoal ash will be mixed together with the ceramic mud an the researcher will make sure to mix it thoroughly. Vases, pots, and other materials will be formed in any shape and sizes using the experimental mixture. The researcher will then put the experimental ceramic material in a kiln or oven with the temperature of 400 degrees. The researcher will get the experiment n a few minutes and will let it cool down for some time. Data Analysis: In terms of strength, the researcher will create a dummy table and will record the data’s precisely.
In conducting this the experimental product must be drop several times and will be measured after every drop. In terms of appearance and texture, and water resistance, 30 respondents will be asked to compare the experimental set-up and commercial set-up. In terms of texture and appearance, the respondents may judge it by using their sense of touch and sight. While in terms of water resistance, the experimental reduce and the commercial product will be soak in the water for ten minutes and the respondents will judge if the products were still as the same as it is before or not.
