VIII. Extra Question(s):

1. Reaction in a Bag Lab

-Purpose was to record the observations that occur when multiple chemical substances are combined and to use your observations to understand the reactions of the chemicals

-Red Liquid was Phenol Red

-Used as a PH indicator

-PH scale:

-Measures acidity

-goes from 0-14

-0-6 is acidic

-7 is neutral

-8-14 is alkaline

-Below 7 turns yellow

-Above 8 turns pink

-2 Solids

-A. was Calcium Chloride

-Mildly acidic

-Attracted to water (hydrotropic)


-Canned Veggies, Electrolytes, Flavors Pickles

-B. was Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda)

-Not acidic


-Baking, toothpaste, laundry detergent, cat litter

2. Heating Baking Soda Lab

-Purpose was to observe and record the reaction that occurs when baking soda is heated

-At the bottom of the test tube the baking soda turned a brownish/black

-Condensation occurred at the top of the test tube from hot gas touching the cooler part of the test tube at the top and it turns back into liquid

-the water level in the water bottle is going down

-The gas was produced when the baking soda was heated

-The heated baking soda and the regular baking soda must be different from each other because when we added the same tea to both there was color difference

-Control Group: unheated baking soda

-Experimental group: heated baking soda

-Indicator: tea

-Variable: Something you try to measure

-Independent Variable: Causes a change in the dependent variable

-Dependent Variable: Color of the tea

-Control Factors:

-Same Type of Tea

-Same amount of tea

-Same temperature

-Same Stirring time

-Same size of test tube

3. Volume Notes

-Unit of Measurement: cm3

-Volume= (l)(w)(h)

-Standard Unit of Length=meter

-1 centimeter= 0.01 Meters

-Volume of Liquids

-use a graduated cylinder to measure volume

-Units=milliliters (ml) or cm3

-Read from bottom of the meniscus

4. Balance Notes

1. Check the pan is clean and dry

2. Always "zero" balance before each massing

-Push all rider to zero (left)

-Use adjustment knob if needed

3. Never Switch pans

4.Pick up balance by red bar only

5. Don't zero balance when you're done
