And... some real time footage!
CHEMISTRY CONNECTIONS *oh yes we did*
When hydrogen peroxide and yeast were combined, they reacted with one another, creating the “foam” effect. Since yeast makes things rise chemically, the foam rose out of the volcano.
We had to take multiple safety precautions.
We had to wear goggles
We had closed shoes
- We couldn’t touch the hydrogen peroxide mixture because it was dangerous… :)
THE 3 STATES OF MATTER AND HOW WE KNOW WHICH IS WHICH
- SOLID- a solid, the "reliable one", can keep its shape and mass indefinitely, no matter the container
- LIQUID- a liquid is a bit less goody-two-shoes- it keeps its mass like a solid, but can change its shape to fit any container
- GAS- a gas is the rebel of the states of matter- it basically does anything it wants. As well as changing its shape to fit any container, it can expand to fill the container too.
- The molecules in solids are compact and have very little movement.
- The molecules in liquids tend to be a bit more spaced apart, and can move past one another.
- The molecules in gases can be any distance apart, and can move without restriction.
