Properties of Adhesives: A Sticky Situation: 02 Testing Tape

In this lesson, students will evaluate different kinds of tape using the green chemistry criteria. Students will learn about properties of adhesives from a short background reading and then test the mechanical properties of various tapes using spring scales to measure force. To conclude, students will use the data they have gathered, alongside information on cost and starting materials of each tape, to determine which tape they would recommend.
