Chemistry ExperimentOne day, Natalie wanted to do something exciting so she decided to try out a chemistry experiment. She was going to cover a spoon with copper! In order to be efficient, she weighed out all her materials and prepared the chemicals before starting the experiment. She also used a stock solution that her teacher has made. If the experiment went well there would be no by-products. However, random and systematic errors occurred and reduced the percent yield. This made Natalie sad but she decided to try again. Practice makes perfect!
