For example, an experiment similar to this one could be how pressure could affect the time it takes for an Alka-Seltzer tablet to dissolve. Using A flask and rubber stoppers, you can compare the amount of time it takes for and Alka-Seltzer tablet to dissolve in regular room temperature water and room temperature water in a flak but with a rubber stopper stopping the air flow into the flask. This is related to the experiment performed above because the increase in pressure from the rubber stopper stopping the air flow in and out of the flask may affect the time it would take for the Alka-Seltzer tablet to dissolve. Another example of an experiment related to the one performed above is how the amount of water used to dissolve an Alka-Seltzer tablet effects the time it takes for one to dissolve. This also relates to the experiment performed above because it also affects how fast the rate of reaction is.
This experiment is called jumping Pop Rocks. You first fill a glass with water that is 140 degrees fahrenheit. Then you pour the Pop Rocks into the glass. Since the Pop Rocks are infused with carbon dioxide they will tend to jump at the bottom of the glass, or maybe even reach the top of the glass once they dissolve. It is similar to other projects that include Pop Rocks.
The different amount energies released results in different color. This reason is the same reason that different elements have different line spectra. The quantum theory says that a certain amount of energy has be released or absorbed and Bohr 's said the same but with restrictions. The quantum theory would explain the vast differences in energy in color. The reason atoms need heat is because heat gives the atoms energy which causes them to move to an excited and then back to ground state.
Why do some objects sink while others float? The answer is buoyancy. Buoyancy is the ability or tendency of something to float in water or other fluid. Archimedes discovered while doing his experiments that any object that is or is sort of (submerged) in a fluid and is (acted) on by an upward or buoyant force. The magnitude, or strength, of the force equals the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.
This theory states that the methane gas that is on the ocean floor is the cause of the disappearances of ships and planes in the Bermuda Triangle. “The bubbles from the methane gas can lower the water`s density enough to cause an object to sink.” (Wilkinson 5) “Bubbles from methane gas can be frozen on the
TLC was used to identify the actual unknown product as well as other products/reactants present in the filtered solution. The procedure was conducted by placing a TLC plate in a developing chamber that is filled with a small amount of solvent. The solvent cannot be too polar because it will cause spotted compounds on the TLC plate to rise up too fast, while a very non-polar solvent will not allow the spots to move. The polarity of the spots also determines how far it moves on the plate; non-polar spots are higher than polar ones. After spots on the TLC form, the Rf values are calculated and used to analyze the similarity of the compounds.
Hydrogen gas was generated during the reaction which was seen when bubbles were formed as the penny was dissolved into the beaker. An error that could have been present during the lab includes not letting the zinc react completely with the chloride ions by removing the penny too early from the solution. For instance, the percent error of this lab was 45.6%, which was determined by the subtraction of the theoretical percent of Cu 2.5% and the experimental percent of Cu 3.64% and dividing by the theoretical percent of Cu 2.5%. This experiment showed how reactants react with one another in a solution to drive a chemical reaction and the products that result from the
The purpose of this experiment was to see if altering the ingredients of a bath bomb affected the effervescent when placed in water. When a bath bomb is submerged in water the ingredients caused it to fizz, releasing a scent and changing the color of the water. This bath bomb experiment requires two recipes. The first recipe which was labelled as “normal”, contained less cornstarch than the other recipe. In addition to the “normal” recipe, the other recipe was labelled “extra” because it contains more cornstarch.
Temperatures that are too high denature the enzyme and halt the enzyme’s activity (2). Catalase denatures starts to denature at fifty five degrees Celsius (2). Reactions in the human body produce hydrogen peroxide as a product (1). Since hydrogen peroxide is poisonous to the human body, catalase catalyzes hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen (2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2) (1). According to the collision theory, a reaction can only occur if particles collide with sufficient energy to overcome the activation energy and with correct geometrical orientation (3).
Other indeterminate random error consists in the apparatus and measuring accuracy, fluctuating at half the measurement of the lowest measurements made. This was especially important in the measurement of liquids, with +/- 0.05 millilitre differences in either the Hydrogen or the distilled water. Since these two liquids get added together, the error values add to create an overall uncertainty sum. This therefore provides the ASS and solution combined an error uncertainty of +/- 0.1mL. Due to the nature of this experiment however, this error is neglect able and the general trends form with high
