Evidence of a Chemical Reaction

In this lab, students will use a fast response temperature sensor to distinguish physical changes and chemical reactions. Students will identify unknown changes as either physical or chemical reactions using evidence to support their decision.

Featured Equipment

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
