Experiment 1: Observations of Chemical Changes
Lab Partners: None
Date of Experiment: February 25, 2015
Location: My House

Abstract: The experiment intended to provide observations of chemical changes as the primary objective. The experiment was divided into two parts, first, mixing two aqueous solutions of ionic compounds. The second part involved the observance of heating and combustion reactions, using the supplied solid elements and compounds. Experiment and Observations: The first part of this experiment involved mixing the compounds, provided by Hands-On Lab, in a 24-well plate. Aqueous solutions of ionic compounds were mixed in eight separate wells. A few drops of each solution were mixed in a well and any reaction was immediately observed and recorded. A table was made noting the ionic compounds being mixed, along with a brief description of any chemical reactions that were observed. The second part of the experiment was to observe solid elements being heated in a test tube, as well as, being ignited in a combustion reaction. Metal elements and compounds provided by Hands-On Lab were first heated in a test tube over an open flame. Next, each solid substance was placed over the open flame using either tweezers or a metal spatula. A table was made noting the initial observation, including when the substance was being heated, and when the solid element or compound was ignited by a direct flame.
