One interesting example of an investigatory project in chemistry is testing the chromatography of candy. To perform this experiment and draw conclusions, you'll need to separate myriad materials from a test solution. To get started, you'll need to examine the colors used to make different types of candy, and then test each one to see exactly how many different tones were used to make all of the colors, such as red, blue, or pink. Another example of an investigatory project in chemistry is checking the width of the zinc coating used to treat a typical piece of galvanized steel. To perform this experiment, you'll need to use a chemical testing method that measures the exact thickness of the zinc outer layer.

When putting together a complete investigatory project in chemistry, you'll need to follow certain steps that adhere to the scientific method.

Steps For Investigatory Chemistry Projects

• Observation - During this initial phase of a chemistry project, noticing details about the experiment's subject matter and recording your observation should be done. Once you've made some observations, you need to think about ways of improving a situation based on your scientific findings. For example, imagine how your chemistry experiment conclusions will be able to benefit mankind (the environment, health care, etc.)
• Research And Variables - At this point, you must put together all information about the project, including topical background data and the overall plan for your experiment. Reference materials, such as encyclopedias, can be used to get basic facts and figures. Then, you must consider the many variables or shifting factors that may affect the results of your investigation.
• Guesswork - Now, you must develop a clear hypothesis, or guess, about which variables will influence your results and conclusion. Then, you must perform the experiment and list all of the components you used to make it happen. Once you've done this, you can record your results and conclusions, and complete your investigatory chemistry project.
