Case Study: Vehicle Maintenance
Produced for Future Morph, this video clip shows an apprentice in motor vehicle maintenance talking about her work and college course. She describes how a car's engine is tested to find a fault with its fuelling.
An additional activity describes a classroom demonstration that shows the products of hydrocarbon combustion. A solid hydrocarbon burns and a pump are used to draw the gaseous combustion products over a piece of cobalt chloride paper and through limewater to show the presence of water and carbon dioxide respectively.
