The objective of this lab is to introduce the concepts and vocabulary of "polymers" with simple models.
To determine the rate law for a chemical reaction.
By making measurements on a sample of carbon dioxide, students are able to determine the molar volume of CO2.
Using readily available materials, students separate a colorless liquid from a common colored solution by distillation.
The objective of this demonstration is to illustrate the effect of increasing surface area upon the rate of reaction in a heterogeneous system.
A water solution is electrolysed using a 9V battery. Electrode phenomena can be observed. The kinetic of the reactions can be changed. Such electrolysis give rise to many industrial applications
These two experiments or demonstrations allow a detailed study of the electrolysis of water without the use of the traditional Hoffman apparatus
To determine the activation energy of a chemical reaction
To determine the enthalpy of vaporisation of water from the measurement of vapour pressure at various temperatures
In this activity the order of oxidation or displacement of five common metals will be determined
