Learn More About This Simulation

Join Dr. One in this Labster simulation where you will unleash the power of chemistry in your classroom! Dive into the world of electrolytes and nonelectrolytes, master the correlation between concentration and conductivity, and discover the pivotal role of ions in biological systems. Learn the essential knowledge and engage in this interactive experiment that brings science to life.

Not just water The mission begins with understanding the concept of electrolytes and how they behave when dissolved in water solutions. You'll start by testing distilled water before learning how to prepare and test various solutions. Including the highly corrosive hydrochloric acid (HCl)!

Conductivity testing By engaging in this hands-on experiment, you will gain practical knowledge of how to perform a conductivity test using various chemical substances, some of which are dangerous! Observe how they behave when dissolved in water and uncover if they allow the solution to conduct electricity. Which substances will light up the conductivity tester?

Ion concentration You will master how to handle dangerous substances and even how to prepare solutions of a higher concentration. This will reinforce your understanding of how electrolytes and nonelectrolytes behave. And to discover the relationship between ion concentration and conductivity.

Biological applications Now that you understand more about electrolytes you'll also learn about the vital role of ions, such as potassium, in biological systems, particularly in the proper functioning of the nervous system. Get ready to have fun while enhancing your knowledge of this important chemistry test.

“They did the simulation at home, then completed the in-person lab within 30 minutes, no questions asked, and passed the quiz with flying colors.”

Lewis Mattin
PhD
Lecturer in Human Physiology
University of Westminster

"I saw some of the students who clearly didn’t necessarily like sitting there reading a book discover they could turn on Labster and keep up with the rest of the class because it spoke to them.

Melody McGill
Curriculum Coordinator
Modesto City Schools

"Having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."

"The question always is, ‘Can we demonstrate that the students are meeting course outcomes?’ Check! We can do that.”

Dr. Melody Esfandiari
Chemistry Lecturer
San José State University

"We surveyed over 400 students. More than 90% thought Labster was easy to navigate, and that it was fun, but more importantly, most of them felt confident that they could execute the labs in person. And that confidence is a big deal."

“The Labster simulations get students to do things, and they're not just sitting there consuming a webinar where their mind can drift. They become an active participant in that learning experience.”
