Purpose To study the effects of Ocean Acidification on some of the world’s sea life. Aim – An explanation of what the experiment requires you to do. Variables I will change the Acid Concentration in Molars (independent variable). I will measure the change in mass in grams (dependent variable). Other Variables are the Time that the oyster shell is in the Hydrochloric Acid and also the original mass of the oyster shells. Hypothesis – An explanation of what you believe the outcomes of the experiment will be, with justification for your decision. If the Hydrochloric Acid effects the oyster shell then it should decrease because the Hydrochloric Acid will erode the oyster shell. I think the mass of the Oyster shells in grams will decrease…show more content…
Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) Very hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive, irritant, permeator), of eye contact (irritant, corrosive), of ingestion, . Slightly hazardous in case of inhalation (lung sensitizer). The substance may be toxic to kidneys, liver, mucous membranes, upper respiratory tract, skin, eyes, Circulatory System, teeth. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce targeted organ damage. Wear a lab coat to protect your arms, legs, neck and clothing. Wear safety glasses to prevent from getting in eyes. Skin Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Eye Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least
