Ionic and Covalent compounds lab

Hayden Severson, Garrett Tracy, and JJ Wendt


Problem: What are some differences that we can test in our lab.   Hypothesis: If we add water to a Ionic or Covalent compounds then we will see a change.   Materials: pen/pencil, bunson  burner, test tube, test tube clamps, 4 mysterious powders hose.    Procedure: 1.) connect hose to burner and light bunson burner. 2.) put powder in water and heat them. 3.) Check and record the tempetures.   Data: Specimen A. has degrease of 70 and completely disolved in 58.10 seconds. Specimen B has a degrease of 65 and copletely disolved in 77.12 seconds. Specimen C has a degrease of 82 and copletely disolved in 36.92 secondsSpecimen D has a degrease of 85 and copletely disolved in  1.00.39 seconds


1.) One difference is in temperature. Another difference is the bonds.     2.) Accept because we did see a change.      3.) That different compounds have different ionic or covalent compounds.        4.) Dropping a test tube or too much or not enough substance.
