Product Details

The relationship between science and sports is undeniable. Tennis racquets and bicycles are made lighter and stronger by nanotechnology; footballs are inflated to the appropriate pressure (we hope) in accordance with the ideal and simple gas laws; sports drinks are carefully made and studied using analytical chemistry to improve athletic performance; and breathable, comfortable apparel is designed by applying the principles of materials chemistry. In this lab, students design the best inner core of a golf ball possible by varying the composition of a reaction mixture to take advantage of the principles of polymer chemistry. This lab will hone students' experimental design and polymer synthesis skills, but a lower golf score is not guaranteed! Complete for 24 students working in pairs.
