1. Put on safety goggles. Then obtain a number of small test tubes and a set of chemicals in dropper bottles.

2. Using data table 1 as a guide, mix every possible pair of solutions in a set in a separate test tube. Use about a milliliter of each solution. Do not contaminate the individual droppers with different solutions. Be sure to wash out your test tubes before and after each use. Flick the test tube to mix the solutions. Observe each mixture carefully f... Continue Reading
