The Chemistry of Cars

Mr Mclennan’s Year 10 Chemistry class had an interesting lesson in Week 2 on the ‘Chemistry of Car’s.

The students had to apply the reactions they had learnt in class (corrosion, combustion and metal+acid) to the processes that power and move a Tesla, Holden WB and Jaguar XJ6. The tesla proved to be very popular with the students, especially when it began to dance (youtube it if you haven’t seen it). A massive thank you to Kate Hook of Ecoluxe transfers, Mr Callaghan and Mr Thomas for kindly bringing in their treasured cars for the students to investigate and explore.
