Day 1: Turning Aluminum Foil into Copper -- Applying Stoichiometry in Lab (Cornerstone #2)

Unit 3: Chemical Reactions and Stoichiometry
Lesson 10 of 14

Objective: SWBAT determine how many moles of copper should be produced from a measured amount of aluminum foil, and compare this theoretical yield to their actual yield from an experiment.

Big Idea: Stoichiometric calculations help us predict how much product is formed based on how much reactant we start with.
