    Lab: M&M's Solution

    In this lab, students will investigate dissolving using M&M’s and will determine whether dissolving happens faster without assistance, or with the assistance of the tongue and teeth.

  • Solubility, Solute & Solvent, Mixtures, Intermolecular Forces, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Molecular Geometry | Elementary School, Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Animation: Solubility Animation

    In an animation, students will have an opportunity to visualize on the particulate level how solubility works. Examples of ionic compounds and a polar covalent compound show how when water is attracted to charged parts, they dissolve, and when they're not attracted to charged parts they stay solid. **This video has no audio**
