Astronomers Lab Report

Decent Essays
Astronomers can figure out what chemicals stars are made up of, and they can also measure the color of the flame and compare them to the light given off by a star. In this project, you do something quite similar by burning chemicals/salts that emit different colors. I hypothesized that if 1/16th teaspoon of different chemicals/salts are added to a simple flame then the color of the flame will change because of the electrons the chemical contains. or each trial, set the chemical on a piece of notebook paper. Then wet the end of a small Popsicle stick and stick the chemical to it. Then put the stick in the flame that is produced by the propane torch. Repeat this process for every chemical/salt that you are experimenting with. I found out that
