Unsaturation in Fats and Oils

In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students carry out a titration with bromine water to determine the level of saturation in a hydrocarbon.

The resource is set out as teachers' notes followed by the students' page which presents the task to be investigated. A list of apparatus...

The pH Scale

In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students measure the pH of a range of substances using universal indicator. By adding a few drops of the indicator to a sample of the substance, students compare the colour produced to a pH chart and record the pH in a table.

The Determination of Relative Atomic Mass

In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students determine the relative atomic mass of magnesium. The volume of hydrogen gas collected from the reaction between magnesium and hydrochloric acid is measured and ideal gas laws used to determine the relative atomic mass of hydrogen.
