Discussion As a class, we found that the best set of conditions for this experiment are for 5 minutes, at 95-degrees, with 7 drops of catalyst, and 6 mL of water. From interpreting the data, I learned quite a lot witnessing and observing this experiment I learned that if you vary the temperature of the heated beaker, you would yield much different results. The two reactions, the control and the variable, relied heavily on the temperature of the beaker. Human error can play a major role in the experiment. The human error I experienced, again had to do with the heated beaker. I had to ensure that I heated the test tube for exactly 10 minutes. Not 30 seconds less, or 30 seconds more. I also had to keep the temperature for the variable for 75-degrees, which also can cause human error. It is hard to keep the right temperature because it is always fluctuating and one has to play with the heat dial to ensure it stays at the target temperature. For each variable, 4 of the 6 given samples and reactions created spots on the
