Pop Can Lab
Can someone please help me with this chemistry lab that we have been working on in school. Here's my lab write up:
Title: Pop Can Lab
Purpose: To use gas laws to explain the observed reactions
1. Set an ice water bath using the tray provided
2. Put 15-25 milliliters of H[sub]2[/sub]O in a clean aluminum can.
3. On a hot plate, heat the water in the can to boiling.
4. After the water has boiled for 2 minutes, using lab tongs, quicklyinvert and insert the can into the ice bath, After several seconds, lift can out.
5. Record the observations.
I need help with the observations!
The observations i observed were: The can sucked water into it. Why is this? It made a loud crunching sound,
How did the volume change?
How did the Temperature change?
How did the Pressure change?
Conclusion: In a paragraph describe what happened to the can in terms of gas concepts and laws (Temperature, Pressure, Volume, Constaants.)
If someone would please take a minute of their time to please help. I would be extremely grateful.
