Three out of the total five reactions went through a metathesis, or double-replacment reaction. A metathesis reaction can be defined as “a chemical reaction in which an element or radical in one compound exchanges places with another element or radical in another compound.” (Webster). The other two pigments underwent a neutralization

    used to examine the different pigments of spinach and red cabbage. There were two hypotheses for both plants. The hypothesis for the red cabbage was that there would be multiple pigments evident. The hypothesis for the spinach was similar in that there would be different pigments present. Both hypotheses were accepted in that there were multiple pigments found on the filter paper of each sample. Major scientific concepts in this lab include chromatography and pigments. Chromatography is the division

    leisure activity. Vivid Pigments Firstly, a quick briefing on what color is and how it is perceived: color is a visual light reflection that passes within the cones and rods of the human eye(2). Which then is turned into different chemical compounds within the retina; that are processed by the optic nerve sending different electrical signals to the visual cortex causing an image to be formed with color from the photoreceptors within the human brain(2). On the other hand, pigments are what gives color

Although it is not strictly true that the Impressionists used only primary hues, juxtaposing them to create secondary colors (blue and red, for example, to create purple), they did achieve remarkable brilliant effects with their characteristically short, choppy brush strokes, which so accurately caught the vibrating quality of light. Scientific studies of light and the invention of chemical pigments increased artistic sensitivity

    The goal of this experiment is to prepare a photosensitive solution and explore its properties. While analyzing the solution, one will learn how to successfully handle these sensitive chemicals and then establish its properties via spectrophotometry. Introduction1 During this experiment, a ferrioxalate solution will be produced from a solution of ferric nitrate that is reacted with oxalic acid. In order to become and oxalate ion, the oxalic acid can donate up to two protons. Ferrioxalate, or tris(oxalate)ferrate(III)

    For my science fair project, I figured out what solvent would work best to erase permanent marker. The solvents I tested were: lemon juice, vinegar, water, and rubbing alcohol. I tried each of these solvents on a permanent marker line on plastic, paper, fabric, and wood. In this research paper, I will be talking about what a permanent marker is, how they are made, why they work so well, what rubbing alcohol is and its common uses, what vinegar is and its common uses, what water is and why water is
