This simple activity can be used as a mini-Lab, a full lab, or a teacher demonstration. Students are able to visualize the concept of limiting reagents by performing three reactions between aluminum foil and copper(II) chloride. Students can relate observations to mole ratio from the balanced equation. Very simple set-up! Can be done on a desktop. All safe reagents. Includes the option to use gravity filtration to isolate the product and calculate a percent yield
