Microscope Test Tube Holder Tubing Test Tube Bromothymol Blue Tape with Labels 6 Test Tubes Molasses Yeast and Water Yeast with Water Molasses with Water Your setup should look like this The next day it would look something like this.

Make sure that you put the test tubes in pairs so that way it can be matched with the Bromothymol Blue.

Why did the Bromothymol blue solution change color after you blew ..

Now that all of the liquid is in each seperate and the Bromothymol Blue behind it, place the tubing from each mixture into one test tube of Bromothymol Blue.

Upon getting into to the lab the next day we found that the molasses yeast and water tube had the Bromothymol blue turned green.

Goals: For photosynthesis to occur, a plant needs sunlight, water and carbon dioxide. To see photosynthesis in action, we will observe how a green plant (elodea) uses sunlight to take in CO2 and release O2 (control). In addition, we will deny sunlight to another specimen, to observe how photosynthesis does not occur without sunlight. Follow the procedures below to complete this experiment.

(two per group) test tubes, stoppers, straws
(one per group) wax pencil, scissors, eye droppers, measuring beaker
specimens of elodea (from local pet store)
light source (grow light or sunny window)
bromothymol blue (BTB) as a CO2 indicator
tap water that has sat out for at least 24 hours (chlorine will evaporate)
black construction paper and tape

Break students down into groups of 3-4 with each group getting a set of two test tubes. Students in each group should take turns completing each of the following steps in each group.
1. Measure 40ml of the prepared tap water into each of their two test tubes.
2. Using the eye dropper, add about 100 drops of the bromothymol blue into each of the test tubes.
Important Fact: Bromothymol blue is used as an indictor for the presence of carbon dioxide.
3. Using a separate straw for each test tube, mix the water and bromothymol blue in each of the test tubes (leaving the straws in each test tubes afterward).

We then put test tubes behind each one of them filled with Bromothymol Blue and connected one of each with a stopper connected to tubing.
