I didn't dislike anything. My question is about how that bag poped in the experiment and how others didn't? Article posted December 2, 2010 at 05:21 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 2487

A solution is a mixture, but the substances fully mix together. A mixture is two or more substances  being mixed together. In this unit I liked the part when we made a mixture with the cabbage juice and the calcium cloride. I loved everything we did except for the test=http://=http://=http://=http://! Did you like the bag experiment? Article posted December 2, 2010 at 03:29 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 404

Melting is when a solid changes to a liquid. Freezing is when a liquid changes to a solid. Evaporation and boiling changes liquid to a gas. Condensation is when a gas changes to a liquid. It was also about solutions. In a solution you have a solvent which is a substance that dissolves other materials. A solute isthe substance that is dissolved. Solutions don't have to be liquid. The air we breathe and also lots of solids are really solutions. Another thing we learned was about chemical reactions and energy in chemical reactions. An exothermic reaction is a chemical reaction in which more energy is given off than taken in. An example of this is burning wood. An endothermic reaction is a reaction in which more energy is taken in than given off. An example of this is using an ice pack.

My favorite thing was when you put cabbage juice with the styrophome looking balls and that other stuff, it turned hot. I didn't like when we had to work. Would the experiment turned hot if we used water instead of cabbage juice? Article posted November 15, 2010 at 07:39 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 347

Three things I learned this unit is a.) the differences between acids and bases, b.) neutralization is the combining of an acid and a base making  water and salt, and c.) the pH scale is numbered from 0 to 14. I liked the acid and base activity the most. The thing I liked the least was learning about excothermic and endothermic. I still don't understand the difference between  excothermic and endothermic. Can all of 6th grade help me. Article posted November 14, 2010 at 05:33 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 242

I have also learned what an endothermic reaction is, and what an exothermic reaction is. Something that I never knew before was the pH scale, and what a base is. I also learned that a lot of things are acids and bases but half of them aren't dangerous. What I liked the most about this unit was doing the Chemistry in a Bag lab. It was fun because our group's bag popped and we watched the bag warm up and blow up. What I like leaast about this unit was doing the lesson 1 and 2 study guide. Does anybody know any different bases and acids? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 07:00 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 232

We also learned about endothernic and exothermic energy, but i still can't tell the difference. One more thing we learned about were acids and bases. A strong acid can eat through metal, but most acids are found in foods that we eat such as apples, lemons, and limes. What is the difference between an endothermic reaction and exothermic reaction. Article posted November 3, 2010 at 07:00 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 367

I learned the difference between a physical and chemical change which is that a physical change may change the way it looks but it still has the same chemical properties or formula. Another thing I learned is that a symbol is a abbreviation for an element or compound, and I learned what a formula is, it is a chemical equation that forms a chemical change and a solution. What I liked most about this chapter is the chemical change lab, it is the lab that we first mixed calcium cloride,baking soda,and cabbage juice. I liked everything about this lesson so I have nothing that I dont like. Now I have a question for you, Is soap an acid or a base?

A solution is a mixture in which particles of the solute are evenly distributed amongst particles of the solvent. Examples are sugar water, lemonade, Kool-Aid, and colored water. The second thing I learned about was elements. An element is the simplest form of matter. 2 elements are oxygen (O) and carbon (C). The last thing I learned about was compounds. A compound is two or more different elements mixed to form a substance, such as water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2).                  My favorite thing in this unit was the solution project, when we brought in 1 solution and 1 mixture. My least favorite thing was learning about elements. How can you tell if something is an element? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 07:00 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 332

I also learned that their was alot of different kinds of acids and bases like soap is a base. The thing I liked most in this unit is the lab when we used cabbage juice to see if the solutions were acids or bases. I liked every thing in this lesson because I learned alot of new stuff. I didn't have trouble with any thing that much but if you have any questions then ask me them. Article posted November 3, 2010 at 06:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 327

Another thing I learned is that an endothermic reaction is when more energy is taken in than given off. The last thing that I learned this chapter in science is what the pH scale is. It is the acids and bases on a scale from 0 to 14 based on how strong or weak the acid or base is. What I liked best in this chapter was the chemical reaction in a bag which is in the picture because it was cool to see the bag expand and one of the bags in our class popped. What I liked least about this unit was the study guides because I don't like answering like 15 essay questions. The question that I have is how many chemical reactions are there in the world?

 Article posted November 3, 2010 at 06:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 260 This unit I learned that not all acids are harmful, and some acids are in the food we eat. Another thing i learned is how the pH scale works. I learned that strong bases are at the top of the scale and weak acids are at the bottom. The last thing i learned is that a product is what the substance you get after a chemical reaction. The thing i enjoyed most about this chapter is the lab we did with the baking soda, calcium chloride and the beet juice. I did not enjoy the test was very difficult for me. I get confused with exothermic and endothermic energy, so one question I have is how can I easily remember which one is which.  I did not do well.

I also learmed about chemical reactions. A physical change is like when you cut a pice of wood. A physical change is when you change the state. A chemical change is when you burn a pice of toast you can not unburn it. A chemical reaction is when you have baking soda and cabage jucie together. I liked the chemical in a bag lab. I liked every thing about  this chapter. I still have questions about chemical reactions.... Article posted November 3, 2010 at 06:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 402

So yeah we just finished the changes in matter stuff.  So learned all about exothermic and endothermic (I know big words confusing right.)Endothermic is when less is given out , and exothermic is when more is given out. I also learned not all acids will melt stuff. I know Hollywood needs to get there facts straight. I really liked doing the chemistry in a bag stuff. I didn't like the test. But, really i don't like any type of tests. I'm still a bit iffy on how condensation works. Anyone think they can help me out? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 06:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 336

My favorite thing we did in this chapter was the one science lab we did where we mixed CaCl2 with NaCHO3 and cabbage juice, and put it in the bag, and it started to turn purple and almost blew up! I really didn't dislike anything in this unit. Three thing we learned about in this unit was about solutions, elements, and about compounds. What was your favorite thing?

I also, learned what an element is. An element is the simplest form of matter! The thing that I enjoyed most in this chapter is the lad with the calcium cloride, cabbage jucie, and baking soda. The reason I liked this lab was I liked how the bag blew up and then exploded in the bag! My least favorite part of the lesson was the lab with the the many different appliences and then we have to add cabbage juice to determain if the solvent was a acid or a base! The reason I didn't like this lab is most of the solvents were danreous and if you smelt them or touched them they would hurt you. I didn't really have any questions on this unit.

This is about chapter 3 and i gotta tel ya about it. The thing I liked about this chapter was the chemical reaction and the bubbling from the product of chemicals(there was some crazy thing there but it was super cool :). I also liked the finding out witch one could be the warm one I thought it was the baking soda I was wrong it was the type of salt that can't remember the name of and (on the 1st experiment I liked when the bag got melted and some of the liquid went though to the big bag :) ). So if you want a good experiment don't do bad ones Article posted November 3, 2010 at 06:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 168

What I like about this chapter is that we did a tone of experiments like the one in the picture. The experiments were real fun. What I didn't like about this chapter is that we had to do many study guides and homework. Home work stinks. I also liked how we got to use the computers for the science test. My favorite experiment was the chemistry in a bag project. We watched the bags blow up and heat up. A few of them popped. The stuff turned purple. I learned that a  solution is two or more things mixted together until you can't see it. Another thing that I learned is about physical changes in matter and chemical changes too. What I want to know is that how did the chemistry in a bag heat up? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 06:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 285

A question i have is how does water expand but not freeze? In this unit i learned that a solution is two or more things mixed together to create one substance. I also learned that a mixture is created when two or more things are mixed together but can be seperated. Last i learned that a physical change is when something changes but can be recreated.

We did a new lesson called "Changes in Matter."  I'm going to tell you 4 things about this lesson that i learned. 1. There are 3 states of matter liquid,solid,and gas. All types of matter take up space. 2. Melting point is a point when it turns to a solid to a gas. 3.Boiling point is when a substance that changes from a liquid to a gas. 4.Freezing point changes from a liquid to a solid.

Physical change is when something is changed but is still the same thing that you started with. Next, I learned about chemical change.  When this happens you see bubbles and a gas forming.  I also learned about matter.  All of the things around us is matter.  One thing I liked is the experiment with the cabbage juice, soda and chloride.  When we mixed it, it got fizzy and the bag got big.  I really liked this unit, there really was nothing I didn't like.  Why does bubbles and gas form in a chemical change?

My favorite lab in the chapter was the " Experimenting with Acids and Bases " lab.This was myfavorite lab because I thought it was interesting how if a liquid was an acid , a base , or neutral it would turn a certain color . During that lab I learned what the Ph scale was and how it worked to tell you if something was a acid , or a base . I also thought it was interesting how a strong base could burn your skin just as bad as a strong acid . I still don't understand how that works .

### Hi I am 33T i'm going to tell you what i learn about this chapter.One thing i learn about  is base.Base is are a compound that releases hydroxide ions when dissolved in water. Other thing i learn was about mixture. Mixture is you  mix together.the last thing i learn wasmatter . Matter is anything that take up space.I like the popcorn lab the best in this chapter.I like everything about the chapter.i'm still dose not get solutin  HELP ME!

Last thing we lean is acid and bases. The three phases of matter is gas, solid, and liquid. To describe the particles i will start with soild is hard. Gas is air. Liquid is a water in the air.

Another thing that I learned is that you get a salt when you mix an acid and a base together. I really liked it when Mr. Phillips showed us the movie about mixtures and solotions. I did not like it when we did the dolsiving lab. How did they make up the pH scale?   36R Article posted November 3, 2010 at 04:30 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 248

My least favorite part about this lesson was the test, but I think the lab was still the coolest. The entire lab was fun to though.The hardest part about the chapter was memorizing the study guides for the test. One thing that I learned was some acids are harmless because some of them you can eat. Another thing I learned was about how food we eat is also an acid because I never knew that I was eating an acid. Oh and one question name one acid that is eatable and one that is harmful to.

An exothermic reaction is a reaction that releases energy in a chemical reaction. An endothermic reaction is a reaction that heat energy is absorbed in a chemical reaction. I also learned what the pH scale is. The pH scale is a set of number between 0 and 14 used to measure the stength of acids and bases. What I liked the best about this unit was all the labs we did. What I did not like about this unit is all the work. One question I had was what is neutralization is? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 03:43 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 234

#### Here are some things I liked and disliked. The thing I liked was when we used the remotes. The thing I disliked was when we read out of the book. Some things that I learned about this chapter were acids, bases, and compounds. Some examples of acids could be strong or weak like stomach acids. Some examples of bases could also be strong or weak like soap. Do you agree with me.

I had never knew that there was such a thing! An exothermic Reaction is a Chemical reaction in which more energy is given off  than there is being taken in. That is an   I also learned about acids. An acid is a compound that releases hydrogen ions in water. An acid can be very dangerous, too. Some of them can burn right through your skin, or if you eat some of them, you will die. But you CAN eat citris acid. It is found in limes, lemons, oranges, and apples. There are many acids, too. Such as citric acid, stomach acid, vinegar, orange juice, soda water, AND drinking water. We also did an experiment with acids and bases. We mixed two substances together and it made a hot purple substance. I loved that experiment! I had alot of fun doing stuff about heat and matter, acids and bases, and everything else. I hope that we do something like that again!

So there is more solvent than a solute in a diluted solution. Another thing that I learned in this unit is that a compound is made up of molecules with two or  more different atoms. One more thing that I learned in this unit is that a chemical equation is an arrangement of symbols and formulas to see what is happening in a chemical reaction. The thing I liked best in this unit is doing the lab when you mixed different things together with cabbage juice and seeing what color they turned. The thing that I didn't like in this unit is taking the test and studying for the test because i thought the test was kind of hard. One question that i have for you is if you liked doing the testing colors lab? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 03:42 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 275

I also learned that that table salt has clorine in it. I thought that he was kidding because if you swallow clorine in a pool it burns your throat and its not good for you. Lastly, i learned that elements are the simplest form of matter and that everything in the world is made up of one or more elements. Now for a question what was your favorite lab and what one was your least favorite in this lesson. Article posted November 3, 2010 at 03:42 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 341

An exothermic reation is a reaction that gives off more energy than is taken in. An endothermic reaction is a reaction that takes in more energy than it gives off.  Another thing I learned is a way to extract sugar from water, by evaporating all of the water.  I liked all of the lab experiments that had a BIG reaction. What I liked least was when we had to clean up a lot of oil in the oil expeiment. One question I have is, what two elements can be mixed together to make it explode. If you find an answer tell me because I want to know. Article posted November 3, 2010 at 03:42 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 362

Another thing I learned is that that the substances in a chemical reaction that are being changed are called reactants. Something else that I learned is that the new substances formed during a chemical reaction are called products. The one thing that I liked best about this unit was the chemistry in a bag lab.

 Article posted November 3, 2010 at 03:42 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 356 Three things I learned were what an exothermic reaction was, what a endothermic reation was, and what an indacater is. One thing I learned was that a exothermic reaction is a chemical reaction in which more energy is given off than taken in(example:burning of wood). I also learned that an endothermic reaction is a chemical reaction in which more energy is takeni in than given off(example:a cold ice pack). The final thing I learned is what a indacator is. An indacator is a substancethat changes color at a certain range of pH values. One thing i liked is the lab when we used cabbage juice as an indacator, this was my favorite because we got to try and come up with our own pH values. My least favorite part was doing the study guides because it took me a long time to write and look up the answer in the book. What was your favorite part of the lesson???

I also learned some examples of acids. They are vinegar, lemon, orange juice, & soda water. I learned about the pH scale too. I learned that the lower the number is on the scale, the stronger the acid is. The higher the number is on the scale, the stronger the base is. The thing I liked best in this unit was doing the "chemistry in a bag" lab  because it was cool to see the calcium chloride change colors & get really hot.

### `In this Chapter I have learned a lot of different things, here are some of them. One thing that I learned int his chapter is that a chemical changes makes a completely different substance. Another thing I learned in this chapter is that a physical change occurs when a substance is changed, but not turned into something new. I also learned that acids are low on the pH scale ,and bases are high on the pH scale. In this unit I really liked the bases and acids lab. My least favorite part was definetly the test. What was your favorite lab?`

A dilute solution is a solution the solute particles are spread far apart in the solvent. A concentrated solution is a solution where the solution particles are much closer together than in a dilute solution. The pH scale is a scale that measures strong acids, weak acids, neutral, weak bases and strong bases. The pH scale goes from 0-14. The lowest numbers are the really strong acids. Around seven are neutral and the high numbers are really strong bases. The thing that I liked the best was the lab with the calcium chloride, baking soda, and the cabbage juice. I thought it was really cool the way it got really hot. The thing that I liked the least about the unit was taking the test, but it was better taking it on the computer than on paper. I thought the labs were really cool. Did you think they were? Did you like this unit? Article posted November 3, 2010 at 03:10 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 1560
