Lesson:

mini-lab - changes of color

Set up an observation page

The experiment: In this experiment you combine three solutions of different colors and observe the results.

warning - UNKNOWN chemicals pose unknown hazards

  1. Describe this experiment in your notes

  2. Make a prediction - what will happen when the blue and yellow solutions are mixed.

  3. fill a test tube about 1/2 full with water from the beaker at your station

  4. Add three drops of blue solution to the test tube

  5. record observations

  6. add 3 drops of yellow solution to your test tube

  7. record observations

  8. next, you will add a clear solution to the test tube

    • make a prediction in your notes: What do you expect will happen?

  9. add 3 drops of the clear solution to the test tube

  10. record your observations.

One of these EXPERIMENTS was an example of chemical change, the other was physical. Which was which?

Discuss this question then summarize your ideas in your lab notes.

Homework:

No Homework

Lesson:

Pass back and go over physical Changes Quiz

SLANT: Signs of Chemical Change

  1. Chemical changes produce new substances

    • Each substance has its own set of properties.

  2. When changes in the properties of a substance are observed, it may mean a chemical change has occurred.

    • Bubbling suggests a gas has been produced

    • changes in temperature (increases or decreases) mean energy is being produced or consumed

      • exothermic - thermal energy is produced

      • endothermic - thermal energy is consumed

    • Precipitates - solids that form out of a solution

    • changes in odor

    • changes in taste - food only!!

    • changes in color

    • other properties may change

    • density, magnetism, conductivity melting point, boiling point, etc

Homework:

Lesson:

Collect Comprehension check.

SLANT: what are chemical properties?

  1. any characteristic of matter that is observed when it changes into a different type of matter

  2. clues that a different type of matter has formed are any changes in the properties of the matter.

    • these clues can be changes in chemical or physical properties

    • density, color, flavors, odors, melting/boiling point

    • literally any changes to the properties of a substance can be signs of chemical changes.

  3. Example:

  4. Chemical property: Wood burns

    • new substances: ash, smoke, gasses

    • changes in properties: becomes ash - fine gray powder

    • wood is solid - smoke is a gas

  5. Chemical changes: A change to matter that creates a totally new substance.

    • the new substances have different properties form the original substances

    • The new substances have different identities/composition

Team brainstorm:

Collaborate with a team to identify possible chemical properties and changes.

  3. complete the lesson three review on page 401 of the text (see image below

Lesson:

Slant: physical changes to matter

  1. physical change: any change which alters the form or appearance of matter but does not change its identity

    • changes in

      • size or shape

      • temperature

      • shape

      • state

  2. changes in state occur when thermal energy is added or taken away

    • melting/freezing

    • boiling/condensation

    • sublimation/deposition

  3. dissolving is a physical change

    • a sample of matter with breaks up into its individual particles and mixes evenly with another substance

  4. mass is always conserved during physical changes

Conservation of Mass

  1. Mass is conserved during any physical or chemical change

    • this assumes the change occurs in a closed system

    • matter cannot enter or leave

    • all the same particles are present

    • only the arrangement, location, or motion of the particles can change.
