Chemistry Instrumental Analysis Workshop

Tuesday 18th Feb Yr12 Chemistry students accomplished Ms Wilma Peeters to Federation University where they were involved in the VCE Instrumental Analysis Workshop.

YSC students and other yr 12 Chemistry students from Traralgon and Sale Secondary College worked with the 3rd year chemistry students from Federation Uni to analyse varies substances to confirm the claims of manufacturers.  They determined the calcium content of different bottled waters and differentiated between organic substances such as ethanol, ethanoic acid and pentane. But what they found the most interesting was how much caffeine there was in Red Bull, Coke Zero, Mother, Coke and V.  By doing these analysis they have information for their Unit 3 Chemistry SAC 1 and their end of year exam.
