Science Lab – Package The Package Includes: An Interface (Set of 1 to 3) 21 sensors across Physics, Chemistry and Biology Connecting Wires Set of Experiments
Experiment 1 – Motion Sensor Outline: The experiment makes express velocity-time graph by measurement of velocity of cart using motion sensor when one gives variable Distance measurement force to cart With time Objective: To verify velocity of object is increasing when it gets force and amount of increase is proportional to size of force Experiment: The motion sensor records the distance and velocity versus time graph as the cart moves away from the sensor thus telling the user the laws of motion observed by the cart
Experiment 2 – Temperature Sensor Outline: Get specific heat of metal with experimental result and thus find the type of metal using specific heat chart Temperature Sensor Objective: Define specific heat and understand the fact that every metal has different specific heat Experiment: Examine how temperature changes when one puts hot metal into cold water and get the specific heat of the metal. Thus using the formula we can calculate specific heat of different metals and identify them
Experiment 3 – Temperature/Pressure Sensor Outline: The experiment is for examining how temperature affects to reaction of enzyme (catalase) i.e. body’s catalyst (It replicates ‘reaction of digestive enzyme ‘ in our body) Objective: To show the best temperature for reaction with Temperature enzyme to take place Sensor Pressure Sensor Experiment: We put catalyst in hydrogen peroxide solution. Oxygen is generated by decomposition of hydrogen peroxide solution with catalyst reaction of enzyme. We measure pressure change with pressure sensor. We get enzyme reactivity from change rate of gas pressure
Experiment 4 – Temperature Sensor Outline: To calculate heat of fusion of ice using temperature of water first, temperature at which all ice melts, mass of water and specific heat of water Objective: Temperature Sensor To evaluate heat of fusion of ice as heat energy goes in when there is a phase change of ice to water Experiment: Put ice and water into a simple calorimeter and measure temperature change of water when ice melts using the temperature sensor. Temperature measurement done this way is much more accurate than measurement using alcohol thermometer
