The liquids commonly found around the house such as acetone, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and oil was tested to identify the physical and chemical properties of these liquids. Acetone usually used as nail polish remover dissolves plastic. Vinegar used in cooking and as a condiment begins to fizz when mixed with baking soda. Hydrogen peroxide usually used as a disinfectant reacts to iodine solution and starts to bubble. Oil is used to keep food from sticking to non food surfaces and …show more content…
Next time we would be more thorough and test every single possible mixture to find out what the unknown substance consists of.
Our experimental results disagree with our hypothesis because unknown substance #10 does not disintegrate plastic like acetone. Due to being a mixture of acetone, hydrogen peroxide, and vinegar the substance reacts when mixed with baking soda and begins to bubble and fizz up.
An unknown substance labeled #10 is a mixture of acetone, hydrogen peroxide, and vinegar. Based on four different tests identifying the physical and chemical reactions of acetone, vinegar, oil, and hydrogen peroxide we found out what the the unknown #10 consists of. By testing out the substance using the exact same tests we used for the four other liquids we were able to compare the results of the previous tests. By comparing the four results of the four liquids to the unknown we were able to narrow down the liquids used to make it. By being able to determine things such as different combinations of liquids, you are able to use that skill to find out what is made in
