Objective: The objective of part one of the experiment is to relate electrical conductivity to the presence of ions in solution. Also, to classify substances as strong, weak, or nonelectrolytes. And, to relate electrical conductivity and chemical reactivity to the presence of H 3 O + ions in solutions of acids and OH - ions in solutions of bases and then to classify the acids as strong or weak. The objective of part two of the experiment is to predict products from reactants in chemical reactions among salts, acids, and bases. Then, to balance these equations into net ionic equations for these reactions. Procedure: For part one of the experiment, we test electrolyte strength and electrical conductivity. First, the instructor demonstrates the conductivity of all substances and/or solutions. Then, we classify each observation as “bright”, “dull”, or “no light.” The tests that are performed are written on the data sheet on page forty-one. And record the data on the page as the instructor demonstrates them.

    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.
