Our first lab

March 8, 2016

We experimented with the reactivity trends in the periodic table, comparing two elements in the same period, and two in the same group.

 

We saw that a gas was produced, so we captured and tested the gas.

   

  

The remaining liquid was no longer a neutral pH.

  

We had reacted calcium with water and produced hydrogen gas (we heard the “pop”) and calcium hydroxide (it’s a base).
