The purpose of this lab is to test substances and to determine the physical
and chemical properties of substances. This will be accomplished by
observing the color, odor, effect of heat, cold water, hot water, litmus test,
dilute HCl and dilute NaOH for each of the substances.
Initially we will
look at physical properties and then through a series of different
experiment we will observe the substance with added stimulus.
important because it is very common for a matter as thoroughly as
possible. In doing so he would observe both the physical and chemical
properties of a substance.
Start the lab by reading all the applicable lab material. Create a safe work
area clear of debris and clutter. Use proper safety equipment safety
equipment during the lab including goggles. Collect a necessary lab
equipment including; 4-well Plate, Goggles, 100 mL Beaker, Burner fuel,
Test tube cleaning brush, 4 Test tubes, 96-well Plate, Blue and red litmus
paper, Mg (magnesium) metal, Cu (copper) metal, Mossy Zn (zinc), MgO
(magnesium oxide), CuCO
(copper (II) carbonate), Cu (NO
nitrate), and NaCl (sodium chloride). Procedure: We will be observing
some chemical properties and physical properties of the elements and
compounds contained in the experiment bag. You should work neatly on
a separate sheet of paper and transfer data to table on pg 56 to be
handed in. I will test several elements and compounds then observe the
color, odor, effect of heat, cold water, hot water, litmus test, dilute HCl
