Electrochemistry Culminating Nick Ben & Kyle

We are taking apart old computers and only taking the pieces with the most gold.

We would find parts and try to break them down so there could be more put into one batch.

All the hammering and cutting we got tired and took periodic breaks. At this point ben stepped up and helped to cut out all the gold.

We added Hydrochloric Acid into a bucket because this would help remove the gold form the fingers and the other electronic parts.

Here are some of the the metals that were able to get through the colander. We used this spin bar which is magnetic to pick them up and get them out of the solution. The spin bar has a coating of teflon so it won't be affected by the acid.
