Bubbles Inquiry Lab Adapted from Section 1.3 Mini-lab: Addison-Wesley Chemistry, Hypothesis: Bubble making can be affected by adding chemicals to a bubble blowing mixture. Prediction:
Bubbles Inquiry Lab Procedure: Write a procedure that will allow you to test the hypothesis. Be sure to have replicates of your experimental design (example, use five cups for each treatment). Procedures should be given to the teacher for critique and changed if needed. Possible Materials: plastic cups, graduated cylinders, measuring scoops, water, de-chlorinated water, dish detergent, sugar, salt, vinegar, oil, straws, spoons
Bubbles Inquiry Lab Observations: Make a Table in which to record your observations. Every groups table will be different because it depends on your procedure.
Bubbles Lab Conclusions: 1. Did you observe any differences in your containers? 2. Propose a more specific hypothesis based on bubble making and design an experiment to test your hypothesis. For this experiment, find a way to collect quantitative data. 3. Turn procedures in to the teacher then make changes as needed. MAIN
Graphing Rules 2 types of graphs: line graphs: continuous data bar graphs: non-continuous data Graphs have a horizontal axis (X)-independent variable Graphs have a vertical axis (Y) - dependant variable Clearly label both axes Mark off units for each axis and list units Title the graph at the top (describe the subject of the graph) If you plot more than one line on the graph, use distinctive marks or color to identify each line and add a legend MAIN Graphing PracticeGraphing Review
Graphing Practice 1. What is the mass of 10 mL of liquid A? 2. What is the Volume of 10 g of Liquid A?
Graphing Practice 3. Which liquid has the greatest mass for 10 mL of volume? 4. Which of the liquids has a density of 1 g per 1 mL? MAIN
Graphing Review Use the graph to answer each of the following questions. 1. Which variable, time or temperature, is the independent variable on this graph? Explain. 2. At time 35 s, what is the temperature of (a) the water and (b) the ethyl alcohol? 3. How long must the water be heated to raise its temperature to (a) 19.3°C? to (b) 20.0°C?
Graphing Review (cont) Use the graph to answer each of the following questions. 4. If the water and the alcohol continue to be heated simultaneously, will they ever reach the same temperature?' Explain your answer in terms of the trend you see on the graph. 5. Does the temperature of the ethyl alcohol increase at a steady rate as it is heated? Use examples from the graph. MAIN
Uncertainty of Measuring Techniques Prediction: Materials: Station 1:meter stick Station 2:metric ruler, regular object Station 3:graduated cylinder, beaker with liquid Station 4:balance, small pebble Station 5: graduated cylinder, beaker of water, irregular object Station 6:thermometer, beaker with ice and water, paper towel
Uncertainty of Measuring Techniques Observations: Record your measurements in table form. Put class data on the board. Station Measurement
Uncertainty of Measuring Techniques Conclusions: Do all the class measurements have the same value for each station? Why? Which station had the most similar measurements? Why were they so similar? Which station had the most varied measurements? Why were they so different? MAIN

Build a Scale MEASUREMENT OF MASS esme/PSAM/PSAM/psamdoc.pdf
CHALLENGE to build a spring balance to find the unknown mass of an object.
Materials 3 ounce paper cup, four paper clips large elastic rubber band metric ruler 2 metal washers, toothpick
Procedure 1. Write a procedure to complete the challenge. Turn in procedure to your teacher and make changes as needed. 2. Design a results table for the data you will collect. 3. Graph your data.

Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Prediction: Materials: red, blue, and yellow water test tube stand water 50-ml graduated cylinder 3 small beakers 6 test tubes
Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Procedure: 1. Design a procedure as you use the materials given to make six test tubes with colors in the following order: Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple. Each tube should contain the exact same amount of liquid. 2. As you make your colors, record exact measurements so another group can replicate your results. 3. The teacher will photograph your results.
Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Procedure (cont): 3. Trade procedures with another group, follow their procedure and have the teacher photograph your tubes when you finish. 4. Compare the pictures from your procedure when you followed it and when another group followed it..
Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Observations: Describe differences and similarities between the two sets. Conclusion: Give possible reasons for any discrepancies and list ways to improve your procedure writing to make replication work better. MAIN
METRIC RESEARCH Instructions: Use the internet or other reference material to find the following measurements. List your sources. 1. Length of a football field in meters 2.
