Published experiments

Following full acceptance onto the ASELL database, ASELL participants have the option of continuing further to a full, refereed publication.  The publication is not a report of the actual experiment (although it might contain such a description), but rather a report of the educational analysis of the experiment.

The papers below are all authored by ASELL participants, and the PDF files are made available with permission of the copyright holders.

  1. Composite Materials

    A composite material is a material made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components. The individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. The new material may be preferred for many reasons: common examples include materials which are stronger, lighter, or less expensive when compared to traditional materials.

    The fizzing on your tongue is caused by a chemical reaction between the citric acid and the sodium bicarbonate. When the citric acid and sodium bicarbonate touch your saliva, they react together to make bubbles that fizz and pop in your mouth. The icing sugar and lollipop make the nice taste.   This reaction is similar to the more common reaction between vinegar and sodium bicarbonate. When an acid (like vinegar or citric acid) is mixed with a carbonate (like sodium bicarbonate), they react to form carbon dioxide gas, water and a salt. The carbon dioxide produced in this reaction is what makes the bubbles on your tongue.
