AP Day 60
We reviewed the Net Ionic Equation practice questions that were assigned prior to break. Students then collected data for Lab 11 (Reactions between Ions in Solution) & Lab 12 (Investigating the Activity Series of Metals). Students mixed microscale quantities of solutions and observed whether or not a precipitate was formed (indicating a double displacement reaction had occurred forming a new substance). Students mixed samples of pure metals and solutions of their sulfates to observe which metal/solution combinations resulted in a reaction and which did not, in an effort to establish a ranking order of chemical activity (thus experimentally determining an activity series).
