Patrick Henry High School: Chemistry Day at Emory and Henry College

Dr. Jamie Ferguson and EHC chemistry majors prepared and led a lab for Mrs. Woosley’s first year chemistry class.  Students had to make a hydrometer and then measure the displacement of the hydrometer in a variety of sweetened beverages.  They generated a calibration curve from a set of standards and then used the curve to determine the concentration of sugar in the sweetened beverages.  After the lab was complete, the EHC students shared their research projects and answered questions.
