    Procedure: Safety goggles, gloves, and lab apron were put on. (Only the ones who were doing the experiment) 50mL of water was placed in the 100mL beaker and heated until boiled. And the boiled water will be used as the water bath. The lab marker was used to make 3 marks (1 cm apart). 1.0 M copper (II) nitrate was added to the first mark on the test tube. 1.0 M sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was added up to the second mark on the test tube. The solutions were mixed with the stirring rod. The test tube was put into the water bath. The burner was turned off and the test tube was cooled. 1.0 M hydrochloric acid (HCl) was added to the third mark on the test tube and was mixed. The 12 cm piece of aluminum was placed in the test tube. The wire was removed from the test tube. Lab station and equipment were cleaned.…

    Change is influenced by many different factors in many different situations. If you imagine the 400,000 gallons of water in a stream at the top of a hill, you can picture that they will flow down the hill in order to reach equilibrium. But what if the temperature outside is -40 degrees Fahrenheit? How might this change the movement of the water molecules down the hill?…

    In biology there is a scientific principle known as the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium. In this principle it is believe that allele frequencies will remain the same among the different generations, depending on whether or not the five assumptions are taking place. In this experiment, students put the Hardy-Weinberg theory to the test. Out of the five assumptions, only two were conducted in the experiment, Natural Selection and Mutation. For those that do not know, the Hardy-Weinberg Equation is used to determine genotype and allele frequencies in a population. After collecting the data from the controlled experiment, it is believed that one of the assumptions of the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium will decrease the allele frequencies for each generation.…

    This experiment entitled "Chemical Equilibrium" aims to help students to investigate the effects of concentration and temperature upon the position of equilibrium in a cobalt chloride solution, Co(H2O)62+. In this experiment, cobalt crystal is dissolved with distilled water and ethanol which the initial colour is purple-pinkish and a few drops of concentration of HCl is added to the test tube, the final colour is in deep blue colour. Upon the effect of concentration and temperature, the equilibrium will shift backward in the reaction with accordance with Le Chatelier's principle producing more HCl molecules. This means that equilibrium rate of forward and backward reactions were met. In result, this reaction is endothermic.…
