Classic Chemistry Experiments : Experiments with particles


When materials are added together, they may acquire new properties. When a solid and a liquid are mixed, the solid may or may not dissolve. When two liquids are mixed they may become one liquid or stay separate. These experiments provide an opportunity to predict and then observe what happens.


This experiment is one of a collection of 100 experiments in a book called Classic Chemistry Experiments. You can buy a copy via the Royal Society of Chemistry online shop for £27.50.
