The Conservation of Mass (The Mass of Gas)
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

This lesson demonstrates that in a chemical reaction where a gas is produced, the mass does not change. Students will weigh an empty bottle, water, and a peice of antacid tablet, and then add the antacid tablet to water and close the bottle. When the reaction is complete, they will weigh the bottle again; then open the bottle to release the gas and weigh the bottle again. Students will communicate the results of the experiment in a written lab report.
