  • Drop In The Chips Into The Acid
    1,254 words
    Investigating the Rate of Reaction Between Marble Chips And HCL Safety- must always wear safety glasses and we should be very careful not to drop any acid. Fair test- we must make sure that we use the same size, amount and roughly the same mass of chips, this is because we want to keep the chips roughly the same all the way through the experiment so that it will be a fair test and the results we be in relation to each other, otherwise the results will be completely different to what we will expe...

  • Increased Concentration
    1,192 words
    . Experiment for Chemistry Coursework For this investigation I am looking at how the concentration of acid can change the reaction and how I can explain this using collision theory. My Prediction: I predict that the greater amount of concentration the faster the reaction will take place. Therefore, particles in the two compounds will collide faster. Due to my prediction if it is correct, I expect to see the cross on the paper disappear faster. As I already know that increasing one quantity will ...
  • Electrons In The Wire
    509 words
    Introduction Electric charge on an object is often called static electricity. Objects charge up because they gain or lose electrons. The electron is the smallest part of the atom. The electron carries a fixed negative charge. Every atom has a positively charged nucleus surrounded by electrons. An atom is uncharged because it contains equal amounts of positive and negative charge. Current is a flow of electrons. It is measured in amps. A circuit can be in series or parallel. In a series circuit t...

    Photosynthesis Investigation to find effects of distance of a light source from pond weed has on the amount of oxygen producedPhotosynthesisAll green plants need to be able to make their own food. They do this by a process called photosynthesis. For photosynthesis to occur they need sunlight energy. This energy is absorbed by a green pigment called chlorophyll, which is mainly found in the leaves. This energy then combinEs with water molecules (from the soil) and carbon dioxide (from the air). T...
  • Results Of Gibson And Walk's Experiment
    453 words
    In 1960, Eleanor Gibson and Richard Walk conducted an experiment to see whether depth perception is an inborn or a learned skill in humans. They conducted their experiment with a table that had a thick glass surface on half of the table and a solid base on the other half. This created an illusion of a small cliff without the dangers of actually falling. In this experiment, infants ranging from the age of 6 to 14 months were placed on the solid side of the table. The infants' mothers were placed ...
