Based on their experimental results, students determine the identity of each metal sample, and select the metal sample with the appropriate density that could be used in the manufacturing of metallic orthopedic implants.
Includes access to pre-lab videos, editable lab instructions, downloadable student handouts, detailed background information, safety information, teacher notes with answers to all questions and sample data, and teaching and lab tips.
