The purpose of this lab was to change pennies from copper to silver to gold, like alchemists have attempted to do in history. Through the data and observations gathered throughout this experiment, it can be concluded that the pennies were not changed into a different element. For example, the density of the penny from 2005; which was the penny that was experimented on to see whether or not it could turn into silver; was 4.62 g/cm3 before the experiment and 4.89 g/cm3 by the end of the experiment. If this copper penny really would have turned into silver, then the density of the penny would be 10.49 g/cm3; which is the density of silver; by the end of the experiment. The penny may have turned silver in color, but this was only because it was plated in the zinc that was added to the beaker of water in the experiment.
Next, we determined the mass of the penny by placing it on a balance. The mass of the penny was 2.47 grams. Afterwards, we placed the penny in a beaker filled with 20 mL of 6 M HCl. In the end we put the beaker in the fume hood and allowed it to sit overnight. During day two of the penny lab, we removed the penny skin from the beaker using tweezers.
How does the type of dissolvent in the water affect the number of drops that can fit on a penny? We will attempt to find the answer to this question using the hypothesis “If we use salt water solution, then there will be more drops on the penny. ” We will use the materials salt, sugar, lemonade mix, flour, a beaker, a pipette, paper towels, a stirring rod, a graduated cylinder, and some tap
In this week’s lab we had to determine the density of a quarter, penny, and dime. My question was “How does is each coin?” Density is the amount of mass in an object. To find the density of each coin in this lab, we used a triple beam balance to find each coin’s mass and a graduated cylinder to find their volumes. With all this information, I can now form a hypothesis.
Also, the penny is too heavy and takes up space. The government has been trying to ship pennies to military bases in foreign countries.(Source 2) They have been doing this because they need to use currency to buy food or merchandise. Pennies are said to take up too much space in people’s homes like dressers and cabinets.(Source 2) This was said during a speech during a discussion to remove pennies or to keep them.
Introduction The purpose of this lab was to compare galvanizing and creating brass with pennies using weight change, mass change and observations. The independent variables are the types of pennies used. The dependent variables are the characteristics, change in pennies, and mass of the pennies.
Sanella Tsuber Block ¾ Argumentative Essay Banning the Pennie Is the penny worth for what it is made for? Pennies are not really worth much, so i think that the United States Of America should ban it out of this country. Pennies are nice and small but they just waste our time. Jim Flaherty, the Canadian finance minister said “Pennies take up too much space on our dressers at home”, like other countries we should take the penny away. Frankly the penny just costs way too much, so why not ban it?
Record the readings for the time taken, for the particular height (the paper cup was dropped from). Repeat this process (using the same equipment), by varying the height of paper cup from the ground (with a specific difference in height, in each experiment). The independent variable, which is the height the empty muffin paper cup is dropped from, will start at 1 metre and the increase in height will be 0.5 m in each experiment. The use of the clamp stand is effective in this experiment because it will always control or keep constant, the height in which the paper cup is dropped from, unlike somebody dropping the paper cup using his/her hands.
To find chemical equilibrium, the following chemical equation is used in the experiment: Fe3+(aq) + SCN-(aq) FeSCN2+(aq). When iron (III) and thiocyanate react, thiocyanoiron (III) is produced. When the concentration of all ions at equilibrium are known, the equilibrium constant can be calculated by dividing the equilibrium concentration of the reactant by the equilibrium concentration of the products. In this experiment, four equilibrium systems containing different concentrations of three different ion types (Fe(NO3)3, KSCN-, and distilled water) are made and used to determine equilibrium concentrations. The equilibrium concentrations are used to calculate the concentration that all of the components of the chemical equation are at equilibrium. Using a colorimeter or spectrometer to determine the equilibrium concentration of FeSCN2+(aq) and
Regret is a powerful emotion that has the ability to scar someone for the rest of their life. Moments of regret can come from relationships, self-made decisions and life changing events. The idea of regret also applies to “A Marker on the Side of the Boat” by Bao Ninh and “On the Rainy River” by Tim O’Brien. Although these two literary pieces are very different in many ways, both authors describe the experience of the Vietnam War as a time of regretful decisions that negatively impacted people of both the American side and the Vietnamese side. Both authors tell a story about a character that recalls of flashbacks of the war, where they grieve over the past decisions that have affected them for the rest of their life.
The novel Red Kayak by Priscilla Cummings is about a 13-year-old boy named Brady who lives by the Chesapeake Bay. One day a four-year-old boy named Ben was out in the water when his kayak overturned Brady tried to rescue him but failed. Brady later discovered that it was his two friends who drilled holes in the kayak making the turnover. This accident causes Brady and his friends J.T. and Digger to grow up. In the book, growing up means being responsible for duties, being able to accept consequences for actions, and learning to do the right thing even when it is difficult.
Title: THE BALLOON INFLATION REACTION Introduction: Chemistry is one thing that makes us understand and gives us reasons of why certain reactions gives certain results. In this experiment we will be illustrating the reaction between baking powder and vinegar and see what happens to the balloon that is attached to it. Hypothetically the reaction of the vinegar and baking powder will produce carbon dioxide which will inflate the balloon. If the more vinegar may happen that when more vinegar is added to the baking powder it may produce more carbon dioxide thus the balloons diameter increases.
Introduction For two days, on the 14th and 15th of April, a field excursion to Hastings Point, New South Wales was conducted. At Hastings Point, topography, abiotic factors and organism distribution were measured and recorded, with the aim of drawing links between the abiotic factors of two ecosystems (rocky shore and sand dunes), the organisms which live in them, and the adaptations they have developed to cope with these conditions. Within these two ecosystems, multiple zones were identified and recorded, and this report also aims to identify the factors and organisms associated with each zone. Lastly, using data and observations from the past, predictions for the future of the rock pool ecosystem were made.
