Slush Lab Report

Lab Procedures

AHS Snack: The mass and the volume was collected for this section of the lab. This information was then calculated into density. The equation for density is mass/volume. We also counted the number of parts in the snack mix (pretzels, chex squares, etc.). We also recorded the smell of it. Lastly, we sketched what we saw.

Slush: The mass and volume was also collected for this lab. Again, we calculated this into the density. With this lab, we measured the temperature of the slush. We took qualitative observations, such as: odor, looks, and what was in it. Again, we sketched what we saw.

Melted Slush: As both before, we took observed the mass and volume of the melted slush. We also determined the density from the previous two measurements. Again, we measured the temperature of the melted slush in both ˚F and ˚C. The qualitative observations we included this time were, appearance, color, texture, smell, count, and a rough sketch of the melted slush.

Filtrate: We collected the same data as all the previous labs, the mass, the volume, the temperature, and the same qualitative information as before (the appearance, color, texture, and odor). But, with the filtrate, we did some physical testing as well. We tested three things, the boiling point, the density, and the acid/base level.

Dry Stones: We didn't really observe very much with the dissolved solids. We collected the mass and we counted the number of different types of rocks in the dry stones. The main part of our data collection was in the qualitative observations. We observed the appearance, the odor, the types of stones (big, small, etc). We also tested the dry stones for the Tyndall Affect.
