Students perform a series of experiments on copper to produce a variety of copper compounds. In this chemical reactions of copper lesson plan, students use copper wire and nitric acid to produce copper nitrate. They then form a hydroxide followed by an oxide and they regenerate the initial copper. They answer 3 questions about the experiment.
Students determine the base metals and surface metals in a penny. In this analysis of metals lesson plan, students determine the density of five pennies minted in different years. They use different chemicals such as hydrochloric acid, nitric acid and sodium hydroxide to observe changes in pennies based on their chemical make-up.
The pH, concentrations, and formulas are needed to complete this worksheet. Pupils should be able to list physical and chemical properties and then provide definitions and equations for common bases and their reactions. Space is provided for equations of dissociation and for the graphs for the titrations given. This is a very complete set of problems and could be used for a review packet, or even as a test set.
In this titrimetric analysis worksheet, students determine how much copper is actually in a copper coin. They titrate an iodine solution make from the coin with sodium thiosulphate to determine the mass of the copper present. Students solve 10 post lab questions and write an evaluation of the lab.
Students write and balance five chemcial equations which have been observed throughout the process of completing the experiment. They use vacuum filtration to recover suspeneded particals from a colloidal suspension. Students correctly identify the copper or copper minerals in a recoverd sample of copper material
In this chemical detectives worksheet, students perform 6 tests on various unknown solutions including a test for chloride ion, sulphate ions, carbonate ions, iron (III) ions, iron (II) ions and copper (II) ions. Students record their tests, take down observations and make an inference about each result.
