Diagrams/ Figures for special set-ups: III. Outline/Schematic Diagram of procedure: APPARATUS AND MATERIALS: Colorless gelatin 250-mL beakers Zinc metal Copper wire 4 clean 1 ½ inch (ungalvanized) clean iron nails 0.1 K 3 Fe(CN) 6 1% phenolphthalein Distilled water Pliers Sandpaper 2 small jars PROCEDURE: To prepare the gelatin solution: Boil about 250-mL distilled H 2 O. Stir into the boiling water ½ bar of colorless gelatin. Heat the mixture with continuous stirring until the gelatin is well dispersed. Set aside until the temperature of the solution reaches 60ºC. Add 20 drops of K 3 Fe(CN) 6 into the solution. Stir thoroughly. Add 1.0 mL of 1% phenolphthalein into the cooled unsolidified solution before pouring into
