Where’s the Evidence (Day 2)


For the second day of our “Where’s the Evidence?” lab, students combined copper sulfate with sodium carbonate. The two compounds were mixed with water and then combined in a test tube, producing a chemical reaction. The copper atom replaced the two sodium atoms, switching places and producing two new compounds: copper carbonate and sodium sulfate. The result was a cloudy blue liquid called “the blue goo.”
