Mystery Mixture Lab DUE Friday (4-11-14)

      I.     ASSIGNED QUESTIONS:

               What did all of the powders have in common?

               Why is it important to use different methods to determine what the mystery powder is?

               Which two substances are the mystery mixture? State your claim and at least 3 supporting evidence based on your data and observations.

               Were there any other possible answers? Explain.

               How do you know that a chemical reaction occurred? Explain using evidence (refer to your notes)

 

     II.     CONCLUSION:

                Some questions to consider when writing your conclusion:

               Compare both hypotheses to your results.  Was there evidence to support either hypothesis?

               What did you learn? Be specific

               Explain chemical reactions and the difference between a mixture and a compound.

               Describe possible errors in the experimental procedure that caused inaccurate data.

               Why is this experiment important to us? To science?
