    Investigating Factors Affecting the Solubility of an Unknown Powder in Water Aim: To investigate the effect of temperature on an unknown powder's solubility. Prediction: As the temperature increases so will the solubility of the powder. I think that the temperature and solubility will be directly proportional - so that at temperature doubles so will the solubility of the powder. Hypothesis: I think this because my scientific theory says that: Molecular solids, like sugar, and ionic

    Rain on Statues Introduction ------------ During this investigation, I will use dilute hydrochloric acid as the acid rain and crushed calcium carbonate as the chemical of the statues. Then I will time how long it takes for the limestone powder to react until there is no more left when the acid is added to it. Rain contains acid naturally as it collects carbon dioxide from the air and makes carbonic acid. Rain normally has a pH of about 5.5 – it is slightly acidic due to the carbon

    Investigation of the Rates of Reaction Aim: The aim of our experiment is to find out if the concentration of the hydrochloric acid will speed the reaction with magnesium powder Prediction: I predict that when I increase the concentration of the acid, the rate of reaction will increase as well. I also think that I will find this pattern that when the concentration is doubled the initial rate of reaction would double, so I expect my graph to look like a straight diagonal line. My reasons

Wallis Budge in his "Egyptian Magic", however, states that it is possible that it may be derived from the Egyptian word khemeia, that is to say 'the preparation of the black ore', or 'powder', which was regarded as the active principle in the transmutation of metals. To this name the Arabs affixed the article 'al', thus giving al-khemeia, or alchemy. HISTORY OF ALCHEMY: From an early period the Egyptians possessed the reputation of

The first hit was coming and Tom shouted “hit it man,” As Dan and I approached the hit we got some big air. The only problem with riding such fresh snow is that when you land in that amount of fresh powder you sink like a rock.

This reloading took over a minute before each shot could be fired and the guns weren't very accurate by today's standards. If too much powder was used then the gun could explode or if the powder were wet then the gun wouldn't fire. One of inventions during the Revolutionary War was a way to reload faster. The powder was already pre-measured
