It is important to break tablets evenly into four quarters Only Fuji canisters provide a good seal (lid fits securely inside the canister) Inverted in the launcher Can be used test variables Factors Affecting Rate of Reaction Effect of Temperature on Rate of Reaction Teacher

demonstration Student activity Effect of Particle Size on Rate of Reaction Whole tablet Broken in half Quartered Coarsely ground Finely ground

Effect of pH on Rate of Reaction Complicated set-up Glass work done by teacher saves time Solutions available of various pH Each group uses water plus 2 others Water displacement technique Plotting data and analysis Comparison of rates with pH Common Ion Effect Can

be used as a discrepant event Why do the tablets dissolve at different rates and in varying amounts? Monitoring Changes in pH and Temperature as Reaction Occurs Must use probeware for pH Temperature Tablets are added to room temperature water

Data taken for 5 minutes Variables can be changed Number of tablets Division of tablets Amount of water Amount of agitation Buffering Ability of Alka-Seltzer

Tablets Macro-Demonstration Burets HCl and NaOH Universal indicator HCl with water HCl with tablet NaOH with tablet NaOH with water Can also use pH probes Micro-Activity Broken tablets (0.15g to 0.20 g samples)

Well-plates Universal indicator Calibrate the micropipettes for drops Does a Gas Have Mass? Can be used initially for introduction to Chemistry Can be used to demonstrate conservation of mass When a gas is produced is mass lost? Baggie provides a closed system

Differentiating Liquids Lab Good introductory lab activity Properties of Liquids Viscosity Density Solubility Detailed data recording and evaluation Inquiry section, if time permits Equilibrium and Rate Determining Step Demo An

entertaining student-centered activity Shows the progress of a reaction from reactants to a mixture of reactants and products Can visually recognize that the reaction is favored in the decompositon direction The Slow step is obvious in this demonstration What Chemists Do A Beginning Analysis Lab This

is a good application of inquiry and the scientific method. May be useful as a beginning lab on analysis Students have three unknowns to determine so the lab requires some extended prep time. Quantitative Determination of Sodium Bicarbonate AP Chemistry Stoichiometry

Calculations Limiting Reactant Graphing Acid-base Solutions Decomposition
