The Sorting Out Solutions Chemical Demonstration Kit is a visual approach to teach students about solubility, bonding, polar and nonpolar solvents. As a chemical is added to a homogeneous mixture, the solution “sorts” into two layers.
This item can only be shipped to schools, museums and science centers
Two clear solutions are combined to form a homogeneous mixture. As a solid chemical is added, the two seemingly inseparable solutions begin to “sort” into two layers. As more solid is added, the two layers become more distinct. Teacher Demonstration Notes included.
Concepts: Solubility, bonding, polar and nonpolar solvents. Time Required: 15 minutes Chemicals Provided: Ethyl alcohol and potassium carbonate.
