Abstract The purpose of this lab is to essentially demonstrate the way crystals grow and how they affect the behavior of the material. A comparison can also be made between the growth of crystals in metals and non-metals. We also see that a supersaturated solution of salt will separate out into crystals on cooling. The size of the crystals is a function of the rate of cooling, and the amount of impurities as well as the degree of super saturation.

Introduction: With different materials, crystal structures grow in different ways. The purpose of this lab is to see how some of these crystals are created. The materials used in this lab were Epsom Salt combined with water. After being mixed together the solution was then heated on a hot plate and continued to be stirred until the salt dissolved into the water. While also regulating the temperature of the water to prohibit the water from reaching boiling point, which would in turn increase the concentration of salt which would result water decrease.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
