Identify metals based on their reactivity with metal ions in solution. This is an activity sheet providing instructions for an experiment based on the 'Metal reactivity' series. It includes a blank data table and a photograph of the experimental set-up.
Find out what minerals can be found in beach sands and why they are important to us. This is a PowerPoint presentation about sand minerals and the products derived from them. It deals with the origin and deposition of the mineral deposits, the properties of the minerals zircon, rutile and ilmenite and their uses as well ...
Students use this interactive to test five metals in an iron sulfate solution to see if a reaction will occur and understand that more reactive metals such as magnesium, aluminium and zinc will displace less reactive ones such as iron from their compounds.
Students use this simulation to investigate the differences between potassium, sodium, iron and gold in reactivity with water in the construction of a bridge. Teachers have to explain how the reactivity series of metals can be determined by considering their reaction with oxygen, water and acid, and how to use the reactivity ...
Students use this resource consisting of ten slides with diagrams, written explanation and voice-over to understand that the properties of some metals relate to how they are used. It also explains why alloys have been produced and how they are used. There is a two-question quiz and a summary slide.
Students use this resource consisting of four slides with diagrams, written explanation and voice-over to understand that metals react with acid to produce salt and hydrogen and find out how to test for hydrogen gas. The reactivity series of metals is demonstrated. There is a two-question quiz and a summary slide.
