After reviewing classification of matter, we discussed changes to matter, both chemical & physical. We then discussed and gave examples of chemical and physical properties, as well as the difference between extensive and intensive physical properties. This led to a conversation of how to separate mixtures, and what properties lent themselves to different separation techniques. Tomorrow's lab will deal with separating a simple binary liquid mixture using distillation. In preparation for this, students were introduced to the Flinn Scientific SDS Search tool, and we worked together to set up the Chemical Data Table (CDT) that they will incorporate into their lab report.
Reminder for tomorrow...wear proper footwear!
