Processes of the Planet SCN 05 - Level 3

Level 3

SCN 3-05a

By contributing to experiments and investigations, I can develop my understanding of models of matter and can apply this to changes of state and the energy involved as they occur in nature.

Ion Migration (Demo)  – Diffusion of lead nitrate and potassium iodide – yellow lead iodide precipitate at boundary.

Diffusing precipitates – microscale – a microscale version of the above experiment (and some similar ones) which enables the concept to be put across by pupil experiment rathern than demonstration.

SCN 3-05b

I can explain some of the processes which contribute to climate change and discuss the possible impact of atmospheric change on the survival of living things.

When a Fossil Fuel is Burned (Demo) – Collection of water and carbon dioxide when a Bunsen burns.
