Lab Report- Grand Central Equation Introduction In this experiment, we created Zinc Iodide yet again. However, this time we did it through different means which caused a different kind of reaction. Better said, in this lab we learned that reactions can take multiple steps to go into completion. We also analyzed which was the more efficient way to generate Zinc Iodide. Focus Question Should chemists prepare Zinc Iodide, from its elements or from a Double Replacement Reaction between Barium Iodide and Zinc Sulfate?
Books are seen as evil in this society so the new job of firemen was to burn these banned books to promote world peace.
