Chemistry - Acids and Gases

This term we will learn about many chemistry concepts: 
Precipitation, Solubility, pH of Acids & Bases, Solutions, Carbohydrates, and Deflagration.

  • Mix chemicals in water to create solutions, create and steal heat, and make blobs of goo!
  • Change the color of chemicals using only your breath
  • Discover how much of something you can "hide" (dissolve) in water
  • End with a Boom!  Produce hydrogen gas, collect it in a balloon, and then ignite it!

Pencil 1) Where did it all go? - *Dissolving*

SaltWeek #1 (Oct 4 to 6)

 

In this lesson we will learn about making things (solutes) disappear in liquids (solvents). 

Concepts

  • Solvent
  • Solute
  • Ions
  • Saturation
  • Super Saturation
  • Solubility
  • Moles & Molarity
  • Polar & Non-polar

beaker 2) Now you see it, now you don't - *Solubility*

CrystalsWeek #2 (Oct 11 to 13)

 

In this lab we will use Excel to record how much of various substances we can dissolve in water.

 

Concepts

  • Saturation
  • Super Saturation
  • Solubility

Pencil 3) Sour or Slimy - *Acids & Bases*

Sour LemonWeek #3 (Oct 18 to 20)

 

In this lesson we will learn about pH

 

Concepts

  • pH (Power of Hydrogen)
  • Properties of Acids & Bases
  • Equilibrium
  • Titration
  • Buffers

 

beaker 4) Acid Breath - *pH*

Week #4 (Oct 25 to 27)

Glowing Beaker

Is your breath acidic?  In this lab you are going to try to change the color of chemicals using only your breath. 

You will learn about acids and bases, and how to test how strong an acid is. 

 

Concepts

  • pH
  • Acids
  • Bases
  • Equilibrium
  • Titration

5-6) Break - *2 Weeks*

BreakNo classes for 2 weeks

#5) Nov 1 to 3
#6) Nov 8 to 10

Pencil 7) Raining Chemicals - *Precipitation*

CupcakesWeek #7 (Nov 15 to 17)


You will learn about how sometimes a chemical reaction creates new substances that are no longer soluble, and appear to "rain" down out of the liquid.

Concepts

  • Precipitates
  • Double replacement reactions

 

beaker 8) Mix it up - *Solutions*

MixWeek #8 (Nov 22 to 24)

 

In this lab you will mix chemicals in water to create solutions, create and steal heat, and make blobs of goo! 

You will explore how to “hide” (dissolve) more of a substance in water. 

You will mix solutions that will create new substance that fall out of the water (precipitates).

 

Concepts

  • Mixtures and solutions
  • Saturation
  • Solubility
  • Precipitates
  • Endo & Exothermic reactions

Pencil 9) Got Gas? - *Ideal Gas Law*

Week #9 (Nov 29 to Dec 1)

Dominos

 

In this lesson we will learn about gases.

Concepts

  • Ideal Gas equation
  • Volume
  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Moles
  • Stoichiometry

 

beaker10) Balloon Boom - *Gas Explosions*

BoomWeek #10 (Dec 6 to 8)

 

We will end the term with a Boom! 

You will mix chemicals to produce hydrogen gas, and collect it in a balloon. 

Once your balloon is full of extremely flammable hydrogen gas you will safely & carefully ignite your balloon!

 

Concepts

  • Ideal Gas equation
  • Volume
  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Moles
  • Stoichiometry

 

Balloon
