11 Bubbles Inquiry Lab Adapted from Section 1 Bubbles Inquiry Lab Adapted from Section 1.3 Mini-lab: Addison-Wesley Chemistry, 2003.Hypothesis:Bubble making can be affected by adding chemicals to a bubble blowing mixture.Prediction:
12 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
13 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.
14 Bubbles Lab Conclusions: MAINBubbles LabConclusions:Did you observe any differences in your containers?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.Turn procedures in to the teacher then make changes as needed.
15 Graphing Rules 2 types of graphs: MAINGraphing Rules2 types of graphs:line graphs: continuous databar graphs: non-continuous dataGraphs have a horizontal axis (X)-independent variableGraphs have a vertical axis (Y) - dependant variableClearly label both axesMark off units for each axis and list unitsTitle 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 legendGraphing PracticeGraphing Review
16 Graphing Practice What is the mass of 10 mL of liquid A? What is the Volume of 10 g of Liquid A?
17 MAINGraphing PracticeWhich liquid has the greatest mass for 10 mL of volume?Which of the liquids has a density of 1 g per 1 mL?
19 Use the graph to answer each of the following questions. Graphing ReviewUse the graph to answer each of the following questions.Which variable, time or temperature, is the independent variable on this graph? Explain.At time 35 s, what is the temperature of (a) the water and (b) the ethyl alcohol?How long must the water be heated to raise its temperature to (a) 19.3°C? to (b) 20.0°C?
20 Graphing Review (cont) MAINGraphing Review (cont)Use the graph to answer each of the following questions.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.Does the temperature of the ethyl alcohol increase at a steady rate as it is heated? Use examples from the graph.
21 Uncertainty of Measuring Techniques Prediction:Materials:Station 1: meter stickStation 2: metric ruler, regular objectStation 3: graduated cylinder, beaker with liquidStation 4: balance, small pebbleStation 5: graduated cylinder, beaker of water,irregular objectStation 6: thermometer, beaker with ice and water,paper towel
22 Uncertainty of Measuring Techniques Observations:Record your measurements in table form. Put class data on the board.Station123456Measurement
23 Uncertainty of Measuring Techniques MAINUncertainty of Measuring TechniquesConclusions: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?

36 Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Prediction:Materials:red, blue, and yellow watertest tube standwater50-ml graduated cylinder3 small beakers6 test tubes
37 Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Procedure: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.As you make your colors, record exact measurements so another group can replicate your results.The teacher will photograph your results.
38 Measuring Liquid Volume with the Graduated Cylinder Procedure (cont):Trade procedures with another group, follow their procedure and have the teacher photograph your tubes when you finish.Compare the pictures from your procedure when you followed it and when another group followed it..
