Materials: copper solute, potassium dichromate, water and beakers

Diagram:
solutions lab setup


Method: Add a few grains of each material to water in separate beakers.

Observe. Add more material and observe again.

Observations: Colours are formed. Light passes through the solutions. The solute does not settle out on standing.

Conclusions: It was learned that true solutions were formed.
