Students will learn about acids and bases through a class discussion and then test a dilute acid and dilute base with neutral litmus paper to learn how the paper indicates something is acidic or basic. Once that skill is learned they can move on to test some common items that would be found around their house to determine if they are acids or bases. Optional: Extra litmus paper is included to test more items either from home or around the school building for a greater understanding of acids and bases. The activity contains enough materials for 6 groups of students.

Safety Data Sheet

Understand the definition of nanotechnology as it applies in current usage. Learn of one nanomaterial, ferrofluid, and some of its applications in modern technology. Create magnetite nanoparticles through a precipitation reaction, while employing a surfactant to create a colloidal suspension of magnetite nanoparticles (ferrofluid). In the end you will examine the response of ferrofluid upon exposure to a magnetic field. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
