This demonstration shows students that Boyle's law can actually be used in the real world as a tool for measuring pressure. A graduated cylinder and balloon is used to create a simple but effective pressure gauge.
In this lab activity, students are given three chemical compounds to be tested. They will then determine three chemical and three physical properties for each, using experimental data.
In this lesson, students research and discuss real-world chemical issues. Students will either participate in a debate or write and essay in which they compare and contrast several points of view.
In this inquiry-based lab activity, students design an experimental process using their knowledge of molarity and dilutions to make a HCl solution from concentrated HCl.
This demonstration shows students how catalysis and reagent concentration affect the reaction rate of a decomposition reaction.
In this inquiry-based lab activity, students design an experimental process in order to recover lead (II) nitrate after it has been used in a reaction with potassium iodide by filtering the resulting precipitate.
In this inquiry-based lab activity, students choose from several different fruits and vegetable and asked to determine whether they could be used to make an acid-base indicator.
In this inquiry-based activity, students design and conduct experiments to better understand that the strengths of intermolecular forces have a significant effect on the properties of chemical compounds.
This webpage offers links to a variety of worksheets to provide students practice in determining polarity of molecules and identification of intermolecular forces from the Lewis structures.
In this lab activity, students create molecule models and measure bond angles using protractors to better understand VSEPR theory and molecular geometries.
In this lab activity, students use available materials and their knowledge of double replacement reactions and solubility to isolate an ionic compound.
