Mentos and Coke!

Today we completed our reactions topic with an experiment which used many of the skills we had learned in term 1. We have developed and applied our knoweldge and understanding of report writing, measuring volume and  length, data handling and chemical and physical reactions .

After we carried out the experiment, adding mentos to cola, we measured the volume left to calculate the volume which had erupted during the reaction. Next week we will watch our videos back and use our ICT skills to measure the height of each eruption before creating graphs on excel. We had a few false starts but once Mrs Horne was holding the bottles the experiments went really well and we enjoyed seeing her covered in cola!
