Closed Plastic Bottle Experiment

1. The topic I’m doing my experiment on is chemical reactions. In my experiment I will mix baking soda and vinegar in a closed plastic bottle. I hypothesize that when the baking soda and vinegar mix gas will form and start filling up the bottle eventually leading to a small explosion. The dependent variable is the product of the chemical reaction and the formation of gas filling up the bottle eventually causing an explosion. The independent variable is the baking soda and vinegar react. My control conditions are a water bottle that is about 8 inches in height and about 3 inches in width and I will use about 6 grams of baking soda and ½ a cup of vinegar. I will put protective glasses to avoid damage to my eyes and I will first pour the vinegar …show more content…

Mendeleev’s periodic table in the order of increasing atomic masses of the elements. Mendeleev also organized elements in columns depending on how they react. Moseley’s table is arranged in the order of increasing atomic numbers.
8. The element is cobalt and its electron configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d7 4s2.
9. There is only one electron in copper’s highest energy orbital.
10. Arsenic should have five dots on its electron dot structure because it has five electrons in its outermost shell.
11. There are two reasons why nonmetals have higher ionization energy than alkali metals. The first reason is that the alkali metals have a larger atomic size than the nonmetals, so they have more trouble attracting electrons. The second reason is that the nonmetals have smaller atomic sizes making it easy to attract electrons but difficult to pull them away.
12. A lot of energy is required to break a strong intermolecular bond. This is because atoms in certain compounds have very strong bonds that require energy to break. This explains why some compounds have higher boiling points than others.
13. Fe2(SO4)3
14. Group 13 metals usually have charges of 3+ because they tend to lose the electrons in their outermost
