Water Chemistry - VCE
- Chemistry Unit 2 – Area of Study 1
Students will embark on an underwater journey through SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium’s amazing themed zones and discuss the most basic requirement of life for the animals that live there; Water! Educators will draw upon students’ basic understanding of H2O in order to discuss and demonstrate the practical, real world applications of knowledge thus far. This experience is consolidated with a guided tour of the back of house facility where students will discover how aquarists record, assess and balance the chemistry of their exhibits and will complete a number of relevant water tests themselves. Key focuses include:
- pH and the science of acids and bases
- The Nitrogen cycle
- Saltwater Vs freshwater
- Temperature and oxygen
