One Example of a Chemistry e-lab Experiment: Chemical Equilibrium Reaction

Sérgio Leal, João Paulo Leal


In the last three years, e-lab, a real laboratory remotely controlled via the internet, has been an important educational resource in basic and secondary Portuguese schools in subjects like Physics and Chemistry. Since a pilot study performed in late 2009 that e-lab platform is being used in and outside the classroom contributing to increase studentsâ?? motivation and interest toward scientific subjects. Currently, the e-lab team is interested in performing remote chemistry experiments, which are more difficult to execute in this kind of environment. At the present, the challenge is to create several chemistry experiments to use in e-lab. Here we explain one experiment focused in a chemical equilibrium reaction.
