The purpose of this lab is to examine and see the different colors that make up ACH marker, We will he able to tell by the strips of chromatography paper mixed with salt solution.
Materials: Pour different markers (including one black permanent marker) Rubbing alcohol or spoilsport alcohol Coffee filters (2) Tall glasses or plastic cups (2) Pencil Ruler Tape Table salt Water Measuring cups,’spoons Clean pitcher or 2-titer bottle Procedure: 1.Cut the coffee filter into a rectangle measuring three CM by nine CM.
