OSE: What happens to fat when it’s burned?

Activity Overview

This simulation explores what happens to fat and oil that is burned in a closed system.

About the Lesson

This lesson is used as an alternative to the OpenSciEd: Unit 7.3- Lesson 11 demonstration/hands-on activity that involves burning fat and oil. The two simulations (parts 2 and 3) serve as quickly repeatable interactives that enable students to see and measure the burning of fat, oil, and a wick in a closed system and discuss how that compares to the results in Lesson 10 (part 1).
