360Science™: Fun with Intermolecular Forces

firewatch

Students follow a detailed procedure and build their very own lava lamp to witness the interactions between water and the added components. Why are certain combinations of liquids miscible, but other combinations are immiscible? Students learn about intermolecular forces and much more in this fun and colorful lab.

Concepts

  • Intermolecular forces
  • Density
  • Surface tension
  • Polar vs. nonpolar
  • Consumer science
  • Chemical reactions
