Sample text

Then, using an eyedropper, see how high you can heap the water above the edge of the vessel. To demonstrate still another effect of water’s polarity, use a clean eyedropper to place a drop of water on a sheet of waxed paper. Notice the round shape of the drop when viewed from the side. Place a second drop of water close to the first one. Then use a toothpick to slowly move the second drop closer to the first one. What happens immediately when the two drops touch? Repeat these three experiments using cooking oil in place of water.

Will the solution conduct electricity? To find out, remove half the solid salt from the vial, add water to nearly fill it, and stir with a wooden coffee stirrer to dissolve as much of the salt as possible. Again, connect the paper clips to the battery and a lightbulb. Does the bulb light now? What does this tell you? Table sugar (sucrose) is an organic compound. Its molecules contain 45 atoms of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen joined to one another by covalent bonds. The chemical formula for sucrose is C12H22O11.

Chemistry Science Fair Projects molecules on a separate sheet of paper. ) In the molecules of some compounds, carbon atoms share more than one electron with another carbon atom. For example, in ethene, or ethylene (C2H4; see Figure 8a), each carbon atom shares two electrons with the other. Such a covalent bond is referred to as a double bond. It can be represented by two short lines. In ethyne, more commonly known as acetylene (C2H2), each carbon shares three electrons to form a triple bond, as shown in Figure 8b.
