I. Title: Reaction of Metals
II. Problem: The purpose of the experiment was to determine if and how different metals react to different solutions. III. Hypothesis:
IV. Materials: Dropper, Beakers, wax pencil, Goggles, eight test tubes, a rack for the tubes, three strips of Zinc, two strips of Copper, three strips of Magnesium, steel wool, Lead nitrate, Silver nitrate, Copper sulfate, Magnesium chloride, Zinc chloride, Sodium chloride, and Potassium. V. Procedure: In tube 1 add five drops of Lead nitrate. In tube 2 add five drops of Silver nitrate. Drop a strip of copper metal into tubes 1 and 2. Next add five drops of Copper sulfate into tube 3, five drops of Lead nitrate into tube 4, and five drops of Magnesium chloride into tube 5. Next drop a strip of zinc metal into tubes 3, 4, and 5. Add five drops of Zinc chloride into tube 6, five drops of Sodium chloride into tube 7, and five drops of Potassium chloride into tube 8. Last, drop a strip of magnesium metal into tubes 6, 7, and 8. VI. Data:

Lead nitrate /
Silver nitrate /
Copper sulfate / CuSO4(results)__
Magnesium chloride / MgCl2(results)__
Zinc chloride / ZnCl2__(results)
Sodium chloride / NaCl__(results)
Potassium chloride / KCl__(results)

VIII.VIII. Conclusion: The hypothesis was proven. (restate hypothesis) The experiment could have been better because our test tubes weren’t clean. We had to clean our test tubes out from the previous experiment and that took up a little time.
