Conduct experiments on household substances to reveal their unique chemical properties. Learn about chemical analysis as you use basic lab techniques to distinguish common chemicals from one another. Test the substances to see if they dissolve in a solution with water, are acidic or basic with a pH test, react to form gases, crystallize out of solution, and carbonize when heated. Compare your data to chemical ID cards to find out what each chemical is.
