Physics 8-17-12 Human Density Lab

PHYSICS: Great job guys – who knew water displacement could be so much fun! 🙂 Thanks Katie and Will!! Good job moppers, and fillers, and counters, and recorders! Now for the lab report. Remember to include that final question in your conclusion – “So why can or can’t some humans float?” And don’t forget – I’m very, very interested in your experimental design, i. e., how’d you gather your data, how are you presenting your data, sig figs, calculations, etc.

Water, water, everywhere! I’ve posted some pics on Flickr – the link is below. Have a great weekend and Senior Retreat!!

Chemistry 8-17-12 Lab Safety Test

CHEMISTRY: Great job in lab this week! Wow – you learned a lot!! Don’t forget that the entire Exp A-1 packet (including observations for all of the procedures you did as well as all of the questions on pages 13 – 20) is due Monday, and don’t forget to also finish the new Part 4.

By the way, NOW is the time to study for your test! In addition to the lab safety packet, don’t forget to study all the lab apparatus – know what all the apparatus is used for (including the parts of the balance and the Bunsen burner). I’ll also ask you about safety control equipment and where it’s found in the lab. Also, make sure you can draw and label diagrams for filtering, boiling, evaporating, and heating intensely. As for the skills you’ll need tomorrow, make sure you can measure volume, measure mass, and light a Bunsen burner. Good luck studying! You can do it!! I’ll be praying for you!

We’re going to have a great time in chem lab this year. Click below for a quick review tour of important items and info about the chemistry lab. Have a great weekend!
