Purpose: To better understand the concept of limiting reactants in a chemical reaction. We do this by
first a ten grams of baking soda into a bottle holding 250 ml. of vinegar with a balloon placed securely
on top, meas
Purpose: To test the principal of limiting reactants. That the reactant which first runs out, limits the complete
reaction of the chemicals.
Hypothesis: If we perform several chemical reactions, and ch
The Conversion of Mass
Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to test the Law of Mass Conversion. To see whether or not it is true
that even when matter goes through a chemical reaction, mass is neither lost or gai
Formal Chemistry Lab
Purpose: To aid in understanding the process of titration.
Hypothesis: If we react an unknown concentration of a base (ammonia) with an acid (vinegar) of known
concentration and finding the e

The Conservation of Mass
Purpose: To show that even when mass goes through substantial changes, the total mass is not
affected. In order to show this we will mix 60mL of vinegar with 10mL of purple cabbage water, from
here on known as P
Measuring the Specific Heat of a Metal.
Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to practice finding the specific heat of an object by placing
it in a calorimeter. We will be find the specific heat of copper which mass is 66 grams and has an ini
Separating a Mixture of Sand and Salt
Purpose: To learn how the components in a mixture can be separated.
Hypothesis: If we use the facts we know about different compounds and their properties, then we will be able to
Properties of Ionic and Covalent Compounds
To investigate the properties of covalent and ionic compounds
To identify compounds as ionic or covalent based on observations of their properties
Hypothesis: If we perform several tests on dif
Factors That Affect Chemical Reaction Rates
Purpose: To learn about the factors that affect the rates of chemical reactions for the purposes of
speeding up or slowing down a reaction.
Hypothesis: If we perform several experiments, a
