Year 8 Look at Chemical Reactions

Year 8 have been learning about chemical reactions in some of their Science lessons recently. During a lesson on combustion they completed an investigation to compare the energy given out by different fuels. The pupils enjoyed setting up their experiments to ensure there would be a fair test. They used precise measurements of mass of fuel, volume of water and temperature change. They compared for the different fuels how the mass of the fuel changed and by how much the water changed temperature. Everyone conducted the experiment very sensibly, working together to ensure that they got the best results possible.
