FREE- Gas Collection Experiment

Description

The easy chemistry experiment for August is Gas Collection. We meet the first 3 Tuesdays of August, 2021.


We are going to make a small chemical reactor, in a water bottle. It's like a baking soda-vinegar volcano, except we won't let it erupt. We will cap the bottle with a balloon, and all that foam and gas will be neatly contained. The balloon will inflate from the chemical reaction. We will determine what conditions can make the balloon inflate the most.

Learners may participate in the group experiment hands-on or hands-off. Everybody brings paper, pen (not pencil) and a ruler to make a Data Table, record the experimental data, and take notes. Optionally, learners may build the experiment at home by collecting the materials (not more than $10) and following the procedure given by the teacher during class.

We meet for three 1-hour meetings to complete the experiment.

Week 1: Materials and Procedure. Bring paper and pen (not pencil) to write down the procedure!

Week 2: Group Experiment. Bring paper, pen (not pencil), and a ruler to make a Data Table. Optionally, bring your experiment as described in the Week 1 class.

Week 3: More Experiments and Discussion. Bring the Data Table from Week 2 and a pen to record data. Optionally, bring your experiment or experimental data collected at home. We will complete experiments and discuss the science.

Mandatory: Blank paper, a pen (not pencil), and a ruler to record the group data.

Optional: 4 empty water bottles, teaspoon measuring spoon, measuring cup with mL, baking soda, vinegar, balloons.
