Engineering Design Challenge

In this lab experience, students are challenged to determine and recommend the most energy efficient metal used in cookware. Students determine that despite evidence to the contrary (i.e., the disappearance of solid matter in a chemical reaction), mass is conserved because the matter is changed from one form to another, not destroyed.

Safety: Before conducting the lab, review with the class the safety precautions on the student page. Then discuss any safety precautions that are specific to your science laboratory or classroom. Good ventilation is required since combustion reactions can generate a large amount of smoke. Caution students that they should wait for their test tubes to cool for approximately 10 minutes prior to weighing them and that hot glass looks just like cold glass.
