I’ve started a new story, “Ambushed”, and I’ll try to write a few parts a week. But for now, I’ll write about my science experiment.
We were going to see how fast an Alka-Seltzer would dissolve in cold, room temperature, and steaming hot water. We poured the water in three glasses; one for the cold, one for the room temperature, and one for the hot. We dropped an Alka-Seltzer in each of the glasses and recorded how long it took for the Alka-Seltzer to dissolve in each glass. In the cold water, the Alka-Seltzer dissolved in 104 seconds, or one minute, forty-four seconds. The room temperature water took twenty nine seconds, and the hot water took twenty-four seconds. The purpose was to find how temperature can affect how long a reaction takes, or in this case, how long it took for an Alka-Seltzer to dissolve in different temperatures of water. I learned that hot water takes the least amount of time to dissolve an Alka-Seltzer, while the ice water took the longest. Happy learning!
We’ll be doing a fun activity with Akla-Seltzer on Thursday…I’m sure Grace will find it quite blog-worthy, so be sure to check it out. 😀
