Year 7 Science Practical Class 7 ScC

On Thursday 3rd of June Year 7 helped to set up a demonstration of simple distillation in science. This practical is part of the ‘Water’ unit where students use the chemical properties of substances to separate them.

In this practical, black tea is separated into the tea and pure water. The glassware is set up to allow water to be evaporated into water vapour to be captured and condensed as pure water and collected in the conical flask. This is one experiment in a series of lessons where students carry out filtration, evaporation, distillation, crystallisation and decanting.

Students helped with the set up and pack up of the experiment in the laboratory.
