Today we took regular sugar and saccharin and burned it to the crisp!!!

My AP Chemistry class got the bunsen burners out and showed me what they remembered on how to use the equipment and how to burned sugar down to its carbon backbone.. off went the Oxygen and Hydrogen in sweet clouds of  white smoke.

I will ask them tomorrow to record their values and determine the amount of moles that they had in the crucibles…

I will bring pictures of their work
