Using Sports Drinks to Explore Concentration and Dilution
Topics: Concentration and Unit Conversion
Activity 1 focuses on concentration and dilution in the context of preparing drinks with differing concentrations. Students complete interactive activities to sort drinks according to concentration and then use a spectrometer in the virtual lab to determine concentration and create solutions with specified concentrations.
