Collection of Gases and Measurement of their Volumes

Gases may sometimes be produced during chemical reactions. By collecting and measuring the volumes of gas produced, we can know more about the reaction which had taken place and may also use it as a reactant for another reaction. The method used to collect a particular gas is dependent on its: Solubility – its ability …

Measurements of Time, Temperature, Mass and Volume

All scientists measure time, temperature, mass and volume differently. However, in order to standardise and improve communication, the Standard International Unit (S.I. unit) is used. Measurement of Time The S.I. unit for time is second (s) Other units for measuring time include: minute (min) and hour (h) Some of the instruments used to measure time (especially in …

Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

– Elements are the basic ‘building blocks” of all matter, which cannot be broken down into simpler substances by any physical and chemical methods. – Atoms are the smallest possible unit of an element. – Compounds are substances which consist of at least two or more elements chemically combined together. – Molecules are the smallest possible …
