A informative page of chemical and physical properties about Sulfuric Acid. Then there are 10 questions about equations for its most common reactions, its origins, commercial use and dangers.
Students observe how esters are synthesized and recognize that esters have unpleasant odors. They record any noticeable changes in reaction of the organic and sulfuric acids. They discuss the syntesis of an ester and name one property of an ester.
Simulated acid rain, a dilute sulfuric acid solution, needs to be prepared for this demonstration. After a condensed lecture on acid rain, you will apply the solution to a sample of granite and a sample of limestone. Your young scientists will create a data table in which to record the pH of the acid rain both before and after passing through the stone samples. The lesson is not exciting, but it effectively shows how limestone can have a buffering effect for the plants and animals.
High schoolers explain why rain forests have great biodiversity, and list each layer of a rain forest and tell an organism that lives in each. They identify the cause of acid rain and its affect on a rain forest. Students hypothesize the effects of water and sulfuric acid on a leaf and identify the steps of the scientific method.
Demonstrate the importance of eye safety in the science laboratory! Acetone is sprayed on a bare, plastic-wrapped, and plastic-wrapped glasses-clad styrofoam plate to show the importance of protective clothing and eyewear. Phenolphthalein is mixed with sodium hydroxide in a contact lens simulation. Dilute sulfuric acid is dripped on a real pig eye, rinsed in water, and examined for damage to the pupil. This lab requires plenty of preparation time and materials, but the lesson is extremely impactful.
Pupils create acid rain using carbonic, nitrous, nitric, and sulfurous acids.
Demonstrate to your middle school science learners how chalk breaks down in a weak acid. Discuss what affects acidic rain might have on ecosystems. Lab groups then choose one of two questions: "How does acid precipitation affect an aquatic ecosystem?" or "How does acid precipitation affect terrestrial ecosystems?" They work together to design and perform an experiment to answer their question. This is a stellar lesson on acid rain, and it reinforces practice of lab skills and the scientific process.
In this chemical reactions worksheet, learners solve 16 exercises by writing and balancing chemical reactions. They calculate the concentration of various solutions.
Acquaint your chemistry class with acids and bases by showing this bold and bright PowerPoint. Viewers learn about the characteristics of acids and bases and stop at intervals to answer several questions about what they are learning. Use this on the day that you introduce this topic, and follow it with laboratory exercises in which young chemists observe some of these characteristics up close.
Students prepare artificial flavorings and fragrances. In this esters lesson, students combine an acid and an alcohol of choice to make an ester. Water is released and they produce an artificial flavoring or fragrance. They answer 4 questions about the ester they produced.
Three questions, requiring short answers, show that chemistry learners understand the concepts behind balancing chemical equations. Nine equations leave the coefficients to be filled in, and eleven reactions are described for learners to write as balanced equations. This is a comprehensive worksheet that provides the necessary repetitive practice in balancing chemical equations. This may be useful for a general chemistry course as well as the intended advanced placement course.
Students perform experiments to determine how different acids cause acid rain. They measure the pH of the water to calculate the water's acidity. They discover how acid rain dissolves rock materials.
Students examine properties of materials and draw inferences on how and where they were formed. They determine the identity of unknown mineral samples based on properties of the minerals. They list the properties that are most useful in identifying minerals.
Fourth graders compare the emissions listed on the EPA isopleths over the past five-year period for ten key states. They use this information to rank each region according to the degree of acid rain problem in those parts of the United States.
Learners observe a demonstration where a liquid changes colors when poured from one beaker to another. In this acids and bases lesson plan, students observe solutions changing color when poured from one beaker to the next based on the substances in the beaker and the acidity of the solutions. Learners answer 3 questions about the color changes.
Chemistry learners read about sources, special properties, and human uses of hydrogen. Eight meaningful questions accompany the reading for pupils to answer as a review. There is also a link to a hydrogen fuel newsletter for additional information. This is an informative resource to use as an introduction to elements or as a homework assignment.
In this chemistry learning exercise, students answer 50 multiple questions on acids and bases. They calculate the pH and pOH of acid and bases solutions.
Aside from a mention of a textbook page, this chemistry assignment is a suitable review of acids and bases. It begins by addressing conjugate pairs and acid base reactions. Neutralization and amphoteric properties are also dealt with. The worksheet concludes with two real-life word problems.
Students investigate the effects of acid rain on seed germination. In this acid rain lesson plan, students design an experiment to study the effects of sulfuric acid on seeds. Students observe their control seeds and acid treated seeds to compare germination. They draw conclusions based on their results.
A comprehensive practice exam, this resource covers many areas of chemistry. The test includes 71 multiple choice questions on topics such as problem solving, chemical equations, chemical formulas, thermodynamics, acids and bases, and organic chemistry. Take a look to see what else this practice exam includes! While this titled as a practice exam, it could be used as an actual exam. Answers are provided.
