Gas Producing Challenge
The purpose of this activity is to determine what masses of zinc and magnesium produce equivalent volumes of hydrogen gas when combined with hydrochloric acid. You will report your final results as a ratio. Keep in mind:
Each student will pass in their own lab. Each lab should include the following numbered sections:
|1.||A Middletown High School graduate will effectively utilize literacy skills: reading analysis and interpretation, writing, listening, and speaking.|
|2.||A Middletown High School graduate will acquire, analyze, and evaluate information and ideas to solve problems effectively.|

|2.||A Middletown High School graduate will work cooperatively to achieve group goals and to resolve issues.|
A Final Note:
Get all of the jokes about a “gas producing challenge” out of your system (ha ha) before you write the lab.
