Product Description

This is a QUICK and EXCITING lab for your AP students! It's micro-scale, but allows students to see beautiful colored fire! They test several salt solutions and then use this information to identify an unknown metal ion. Armed with the identified colors, students then calculate the wavelength in meters (given the wavelength of each color in nanometers). Finally, students calculate the energy of light per photon that corresponds to each color. This is a great way to give them practice with light equations and make the math relevant!

This lab is in WORD format, so it is fully editable. It includes teacher instructions, lab procedures, and a student lab handout with answer key.

You'll need wooden splints or nichrome loops, basic lab equipment, and the following 0.1M chloride solutions in dropper bottles: calcium, copper, lithium, strontium, sodium, and potassium.
