I AM MELTING
SCIENCE LAB

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

IN THIS LAB YOU WILL BE TAKING A LOOK AT HOW METALS CAN SWITCH AND THE CHEMICAL REACTION THAT GOES ALONG WITH THE SWITCH.

 

IN THIS LAB YOU WILL BE USING THE FOLLOWING CHEMICALS

 

         COPPER CHLORIDE CuCl2

         WATER H20

         ALUMINUM Al

 

A CLASS DISCUSSION WILL BE UTILIZED TO DISCUSS CHEMICAL AMOUNTS AND THE LAB PROCEDURES THAT WILL BE USED TO CONDUCT THIS LAB.

 

 

PROCEDURES

 

ACQUIRE THE CORRECT AMOUNTS OF CHEMICALS AS PER TEACHER INSTRUCTIONS.

 

IN THIS LAB YOU WILL NEED TO USE SPECIAL TECHNIQUES TO TRAP GAS THAT IS PRODUCED IN THE RACTION.

 

PREPARE A HYPOTHESIS THAT IS BASED ON WHAT YOU BELIEVE THE EVENTS OF THE LAB WILL BE.

 

MAKE YOUR OBSERVATIONS OF THE CHEMICALS BEFORE YOU REACT THEM. BE SURE AND RECORD IF THE CHEMICALS ARE SUBSTANCES, MIXTURES, ETC. BE SURE AND RECORD ALL THE PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CHEMICALS THAT YOU CAN.

 

CONDUCT THE EXPERIMENT PER TEACHERS INSTRUCTIONS. BE SURE TO RECORD YOUR OBSERVATIONS OF THE EVENTS OF THE LAB.

 

THE CHEMICALS IN THIS LAB WILL REQUIRE SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS IN ORDER TO USE THEM.

 

 

WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR ANALYSIS

 

      WRITE AN ANALYSIS OF YOUR LAB: (HELPFUL QUESTIONS TO ANSWER)

 

      WAS YOUR HYPOTHESIS CORRECT?

 

      HOW DID THE EVENTS OF THE LAB DIFFER FROM THAT HYPOTHESIS?

 

      WHAT WERE THE EVENTS OF THE LAB AS THOSE EVENTS RELATE TO CHEMISTRY

VOCABULARY? BE SURE AND USE THAT VOCABULARY IN THE ANALYSIS.

 

      DID YOUR GROUP MAKE ANY MISTAKES THAT MAY HAVE CHANGED THE RESULTS?

      CLEARLY RE-STATE THE EVENTS OF THE LAB BASED ON WHAT YOU OBSERVED.

 

 

LAB APPLICATION QUESTIONS FOR YOUR CONCLUSION

 

WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPEN TO THE COPPER AND THE ALUMINUM IN THE LAB?
