Comparing Reactivities of ElementsIn this task, you will rank several elements according to their reactivities. You’ll base your rankings on whether a chemical reaction occurs between certain elements. Before you begin, read this information about lab safety. Estimated time to complete: 2 hours If you’ve purchased an Edmentum lab kit, remove the items that appear in the following equipment list. The chemicals are located inside a box within the kit. You’ll also need a pen to label the test tubes. For more information about each chemical, view the safety data sheets. Click the Product Resources tab followed by Datasheet. You’ll need these materials: test tube rack test tubes (quantity: 6) test tube labels graduated cylinder wash bottle with distilled water (Tap water is acceptable, but it can skew the experimental results.) pipettes (quantity: 2) forceps 50-milliliter Erlenmeyer ask scoop test tube brush apron goggles gloves pen or ne-tip marker small piece of sandpaper chemicals from Edmentum Lab kit: copper metal strip (quantity: 1) iron nails (quantity: 2) zinc metal strips (quantity: 3) copper(II) sulfate solution (10 milliliters) iron(III) nitrate solution (10 milliliters), also called ferric nitrate magnesium sulfate solution (10 milliliters) hydrochloric acid (30 milliliters) sodium bicarbonate (7.5 grams) Always work safely: Do not work directly on a granite or marble countertop. These surfaces may be damaged by hydrochloric acid. Keep lids on the chemical bottles at all times, except when you are actively dispensing from a bottle. Wear an apron, goggles, and gloves anytime you are working with chemicals, including during disposal. Do not mix chemicals together except as instructed in the laboratory procedure. If a chemical splashes into your eyes, immediately remove any contact lenses
