Experiment 4:  Properties of Gases   Remember to wear goggles at all times.  Please ensure the  safety of those around you.   Objectives:  To investigate some physical and chemical  properties of gases and use these properties to identify  these gases when they are encountered.   Read  pp 46-50 in laboratory manual.   Materials provided by students:   % Matches % Toothpicks % Pie tin % Drinking straw % Marker pen % Household white vinegar % 3% Hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) % Measuring spoons % Baking soda

Bromthymol blue Limewater (saturated calcium hydroxide) Mossy Zn piece.   We will identify some gases by their chemical and  physical properties.  We will look at hydrogen (H 2 ),  oxygen (O 2 ), and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ).   Refer to your lab manual page 47 for the chemical  equations of the reactions we are about to  perform.   Procedure:  Take the 6M HCl (hydrochloric acid)  from the auxiliary bottle. Pour 3.5 mL of distilled water into the graduated  cylinder.  Carefully add, drop by drop, 1 mL of 6mL  directly from the auxiliary bottle.  Mix well and pour  the total 4.5 mL of diluted HCl into a test tube.   Use your well as a test tube and pipet holder.     Graduated cylinder with 3.5 mL of distilled water then 1.0 mL of HCl added dropwise from the auxiliary bag.  Mix by stirring. Make sure goggles are on.
