This document is not meant to be a substitute for a formal laboratory report. The Lab Report
Assistant is simply a summary of the experiment’s questions, diagrams if needed, and data tables
that should be addressed in a formal lab report. The intent is to facilitate students’ writing of lab
reports by providing this information in an editable file which can be sent to an instructor.

Tarnishing of silver:F. How would you show that dissolving table salt is a physical changeCleanup: Mix the leftover sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid in your beaker. This will
neutralize them. Now, pour them down the drain with lots of water. Place the small amount of
solid chemicals left (if any) in a small plastic bag and put it in the trash. After the burner fuel has
