In this lab, students will do three different experiments to investigate the following properties of water:
-Water as the Universal Solvent
To observe cohesion, students will see how many drops of water they can fit on the head of a penny.
To observe adhesion, students will roll drops of water around on wax paper.
To observe water as the universal solvent, students will dissolve sugar and instant coffee in water and make observations. Students will see that oil does not dissolve in water.
