Bubble Quality Lab

Hypothesis: The sugar solution will produce the best quality bubbles because of it’s sticky texture.

Procedure: First, three cups were labeled as #1, #2, and #3. Next, each cup had one teaspoon of dish detergent and ⅔ cup of water added to them and swirled around to have everything mixed. Cup #2 then had half a teaspoon of table sugar added and cup #3 had half a teaspoon of table salt added to them. After that, a straw was dipped into each solution separately, and blown through in order to make bubbles. Data was recorded while blowing bubbles.

Data Table 1: Bubbles Using Different Solutions

Control
Sugar
Salt
Appearance of Solution
-Colorless
-More translucent than cup one
-Cloudy
Bubble Size
-Generally small
-Occasionally medium
-Medium sized
-Larger than cup one
-Medium to large
Ease to Blow Bubbles
-Easy
-Needed to be gentle
-Moderately easy
-Some strength and speed needed
-Difficult
-Needed to be gentle and slow
Time Before Bubbles Popped*
-5 to 10 seconds
-15 to 20 seconds
-10 to 15 seconds
*Time when from when bubble left straw and popped. This includes if it stuck on objects

Analysis: It can be seen that the sugar solution was the best when looking at the quality of bubbles. Based off Data Table 1, the sugar solution produced bubbled that lasted for 15 to 20 seconds. Although the salt solution lasted longer than control and created larger bubbles than the sugar, it was often hard to make bubbles unless very gentle blows were used. It can be concluded that adding sugar made the bubbles stronger, while salt was weaker than the sugar, and the control the weakest of all.

Conclusion: It was proven that the hypothesis made, “the sugar solution will produce the best quality bubbles because of it’s sticky texture,” did in fact come true. To improve this experiment, it could be done in a windless room as well as launched up higher. This way, the bubbles won’t pop because of the wind, and it could take a

The Effect of Temperature on a Chemical Reaction? The purpose of this experiment is to determine if the scientist can conclude in which temperature of water an Alka-Seltzer tablet has the fastest reaction time. The scientist will measure the time of reaction in temperature of water several times to come to an accurate conclusion. “With an Alka-Seltzer tablet, the CO2 is produced as result of a chemical reaction” (Spangler, 2010). The chemical reaction that occurs when the tablet interacts with a substance is known as effervescence. This process produces immediately creates bubbles or “fizzes” and is the product of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and citric acid reacting to form sodium citrate and carbon dioxide gas; which is the main reaction that is known by alka-seltzer tablets. (Chemistry of Effervescence, 2008).…

First, label 6 test tubes a-f. Next, place the 100 mL beaker on the digital scale and zero the scale. Measure 17.1 g of table sugar by putting it in the beaker. Then measure a total of 50 mL of distilled water by using a 25-mL graduated cylinder. Using the stirring rod, slowly add the 50 mL and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. This is now a 1.0 M (molarity) solution. Label a short stem pipet “DW” (distilled water), which will be used throughout the experiments. Use the 25 mL graduated cylinder to measure 5 mL of distilled water and add that to test tube “a”. Dry the graduated cylinder and wash with distilled water after each step after this. Use the graduated cylinder to measure 1 mL of the 1.0 M sucrose solution and use the “DW” pipet to add 4 mL of distilled water to test tube “b”, which is now a .2 M solution. Then use the graduated cylinder to measure 2 mL of 1.0 M sucrose solution and add 3 mL of distilled water to test tube “c”, which this creates a .4 M solution. Measure 3 mL of 1.0 M sucrose and 2 mL of distilled water to test tube “d”, which then creates the .6 M solution. Measure 4 mL of the 1.0 M sucrose solution and 1 mL of distilled water to test tube “e”, which creates the .8 M solution. Finally, measure 5 mL of the 1.0 M sucrose solution and add to test tube “f”, creating the 1.0 M…

I chose this project because edible sugar crystals sounded like a good idea to create and try. I saw this idea from Science Bob website and thought it was interesting. The purpose is to see if more sugar causes more crystals. My objective is to grow a large number of sugar crystals on a wooden skewer. Rock candy is a candy made…

The Experiment First, I found two 1litre bottles and marked one with ‘+ salt’ and the other with ‘fresh’. I then went on to add red food colouring to the fresh bottle and yellow to the + salt bottle. The reason for doing so was to establish which ones were which and see if they will successfully float on one another. Secondly, I put 25 tsp of salt into the + salt bottle to improve the density of it (as I was told it would help.) Finally I put the fresh bottle on top of the + salt, making sure I didn’t spill too much in the process.…

My hypothesis is: By changing the concentration of sugar, I think that the water will move from a high water concentration to a low concentration via osmosis. I predict that the more sugar concentration there is, the rate of osmosis will increase and therefore will have an effect on the results of the experiment.…

Method We started setting up our experiment by measuring different molar solutions (0M, 0.25M, 0.5M, 0.75M and 1M) of sugar and putting them into separate bottles, along with one bag (12g) of yeast and 300ml of water. We then attached a tube going from the top of each bottle to separate test tubes which were entirely full of water and were placed upside down in a tub of water, stopping the tube from emptying and…

Each Mentos candy has thousands of small pores on its surface which disrupt the polar attractions between water molecules, creating thousands of ideal nucleation sites for the gas molecules to congregate. In non-science speak, this porous surface creates a lot of bubble growth sites, allowing the carbon dioxide bubbles to rapidly form on the surface of the Mentos. (If you use a smooth surfaced Mentos candy, you won’t get nearly same the reaction.) The buoyancy of the bubbles and their growth will eventually cause the bubbles to leave the nucleation site and rise to the surface of the soda. Bubbles will continue to form on the porous surface and the process will repeat, creating a nice, foamy geyser.…
