Lab-Aids: Properties of Acids and Bases Experiment Kit
This Applied Science Concepts Kit provides a completely safe and convenient method for students to study, test, and observe the characteristic properties of acids and bases. Activities incorporate the LAB-AIDS‚® Chemplates‚®. This unique lab tool eliminates the need for glassware and provides a semi-micro environment in any classroom.
Students perform a total of seven different activities:‚
Reacting metal with acids and producing hydrogen in safe quantities.
Collecting and safely testing hydrogen
Reacting carbonates with acids and producing carbon dioxide
Collecting and testing carbon dioxide
Observing the effects of acids and bases on the indicator dyes
Measuring the concentration of acids by titration of an "unknown"
Performing a neutralization experiment
Study, test, and observe the characteristic properties of acids and bases
Prepare, collect, and test hydrogen safely
Prepare, collect and test carbon dioxide safely
Observe the effects of acids and bases on indicator dyes
Measure the concentration of acids by titration of anunknown
Perform a neutralization experiment between an acid and a base to form a salt
