Abstract
Get Charged Up

Magnesium ribbon was reacted with Hydrochloric acid in three different experiments to determine the charge on a metal ion. After running multiple tests in the three different procedures, the Crystallization method proved to be the best method for determining the charge of the metal ion by using mole to mole ratio.
Introduction
The objective of the Get Charged Up lab was to determine the charge on a metal ion reacting with HCl by determine the mole ratio in a reaction by determining the amount of excess reactant, amount of product, and amount of hydrogen gas produced as well as finding the best research method to determine the charge.
To accomplish this, three different methods were used. Titration was used to react NaOH with HCl to determine the amount of H+ left over after the reaction is complete. Crystallization was used to determine the amount of MgCl₂ made after the reaction is done. Both of these methods allowed us to calculate the amount of H+ reacting with the amount of Mg. The gas law method and the Ideal Gas Law was also used to determine the mole ratio of magnesium metal to hydrochloric acid by measuring the amount of hydrogen gas based on the pressure and temperature changes during the reaction. With the results from each procedure, graphs were constructed and the most accurate and precise method was discernible.
It is predicted that the titration method will be the most effect method of deterring a charge on a metal ion because almost all of the experiment done with titration is done by the experimenter and is the fairly easiest method. A titration is a method of analysis that will allow you to determine the precise endpoint of a reaction and therefore the precise quantity of reactant in the titration flask. Because of this precision, the titration method will be best for determining the charge of a metal ion because it is the most effective process.
Method
Three different methods

    You find the individual BMI by a maths calculation using the height and weight of the person, its calculated by multiplying the weight in pounds by 703 then dividing the answer by the height in inches, The total number you get is BMI of the body, the, I also found out what the number mean for example if the BMI is less than 18.5 the body is under weight and if the BMI is 30+ the body is obese. Formula = Weight in Pounds / (Height in inches x Height in inches) x 703. A unit equal to the kilocalorie…

    Charged as adults? In the 1700’s there was no distinguish in the law between juveniles and adults. However, there is now a ongoing debate on whether or not 16 years should be charged as adults in the court of law. I am confident in my opinion that they should at the age of 16 years be charged as adults. They have to be able to take responsibility for their actions. Also, 16 year olds should be able to make their own decisions. At the age of 16 teens need to be able to take responsibility for…

    the general welfare of juvenile offenders. Although juveniles may not be sentenced to death, there are still several problems that exist in the juvenile justice system. Juveniles are not protected in the juvenile justice system; they are often charged as adults for non-violent crimes. It is unconstitutional to incriminate juvenile delinquents as adults; it is a cruel and unusual punishment because they lack cognizance of the crime, they can be rehabilitated, and they are placed in great danger…
