Water Quality: Removing Contaminants Day 1

Unit 5: Environmental Applications of Chemistry
Lesson 3 of 7

Objective: SWBAT describe potential contaminants (such as large organic molecules and metallic ions), where they come from, and how to remove them from water samples.

Big Idea: Water pollutants from industry are usually in the form of large organic molecules and metallic ions; we can remove these contaminants using small particles to "soak" up the contaminants.
