messy science

Today in class we did a science experiment about mixtures and solutions. We had 3 different solvents and 1 solute. The sugar was the solute and the solvent was oil water and vinegar. But first we had to make pink sugar. We got food coloring and sugar then we mixed food coloring with sugar and make pink sugar.

Then we made a hypothesis my hypothesis was if we mixed the sugar with the oil then it would float to the bottom and I was correct but some went to the top. It was sticky and slow like syrup. But pink like slime. also the middle stayed the same. I think this because the oil is lighter then the sugar and the color is lighter then both so that’s how it went to the top

Then we made another hypothesis for the water I thought that it would be pink sugar water. Then when we mixed it with water making pink sugar water that was easy to hypothesize. But some of the sugar did not dissolve I think this happened because the water could only hold a certain amount of sugar

then we did our last experiment we mixed the the sugar with the vinegar. my hypothesis was that it would be smelly and pink looking. It was smelly that was for sure but it was more orange. I think that this happened because the color spreads out and grows lighter.

I had no questions but a lot of answers

power

power plays a big role in refuge like when Joseph has to take the role of adult because Hitler wants them out and his mom and dad have gone crazy and Isabelle has to help her mom because she is having a baby and trying to get away from the coast gard and when mamuded was in the sea they all had to be adult so the didn’t drown.

Passion Project 3

So far every thing is going good. I’m starting my next project. It is a project to use the magnetic force to make a motor. First you need a battery copper wire and little magnets. first you bend the wire into a unenclosed circle. Then you stack the magnets on top of each other. then place the battery in the copper wire, about 4-6 magnets and place the battery and wire on top of the magnets and the wire will spin. ( tip: you must have the top of the battery touching the wire and the bottom part of the wire must be a millimeter away)

Passion project 2

My passion project is going good so far my first experiment worked ( i will post pictures of that latter) and my chicken bone project is working pretty good. My Hypothesis is that the vinegar will take out the Calcium in the bone and make it rubbery. the bone is starting to look weird. If any of you want to try this at home all u need is a raw chicken bone and vinegar. first put the chicken bone in the bowl then poor in the vinegar and let it set for one or two weeks.

refugee #2

In the book refugee the narrator changes from main character to main character every chapter. I think that the author did that because he likes cliffhangers and it affects the readers by making them tense.

passion project #1

2 days ago Mrs Boyer assigned us a passion project first we have to wright a letter to her explaining it

the document she gave us is up above. I chose science. For the building part I will do science experiments and make a video. My first experiment is trying to light something on fire and not burn it my second experiment is to turn a chicken bone to rubber. My third experiment is to start a fire with a wrapper. My forth experiment is to turn milk to plastic and so on. I will post more blog posts so keep looking. 🙂

🚂Rube Goldberg #6🚂

Today we finished the rube Goldberg video. IT TOOK SOOOOOOOOOOOO long we were there for like 4 hours working on the video. It has a slow mo a part where we explain everything and a video of us eating the burnt toast ( it was disgusting.) we had to go over it many times but I think CY did the most work on the video. we also had a one more ice cream sunday. (I think that was a bit over kill) the vidoe is down below
