meticulous attention to detail and time management necessary to complete large jobs. One must also have had prior experience with the tools involved with the project. Limitations that could be addressed for the future is the amount of time spent mixing some of the chemical reactions. As an example, there was a step in Project C where one had to mix their solution in a hot bath for 30 minutes. After consulting Dora, mixing for 15-20 minutes would have sufficed for the procedure. Conclusion Altogether, the general separation of the metals required changes in temperature, then pH and the final usage of a specific chemical to create a precipitate for each step. The importance of the precipitate’s presence highlighted the student’s ability to extract their components. This report was the evidence shown to the students that everything previously learned from other prior courses and in-class lessons were put to the test for this final project. The world would be unrecognizable if this technique never existed. References (1) Sullivan, R. (2012). Precipitation of Lead Chromate. Retrieved December 5, 2018, from (2) Yoder, C. (2018).
