Combustion Process

Students will investigate the products of a combustion reaction and test to identify gases.


SEEd CHEM.2.3 Plan and carry out an investigation to observe the change in properties of substances in a chemical reaction, and relate the macroscopically observed properties to the molecular level changes in bonds and the symbolic notation used in chemistry. Emphasize that the visible macroscopic changes in chemical reactions are a result of changes on the molecular level. Examples of observable properties could include changes in color or the production of a solid or gaseous product. (PS1.B)

Lesson Performance Expectations

Students investigate the products of a combustion reaction. Students will learn tests to identify gases.
