A rubber planter wanted to sell his latex and rubber. He mixes the latex with an alkali (ammonia) to maintain its liquid form. (i) aim of experiment (ii) identification of variables (iii) list of apparatus and materials (iv) method (v) tabulation of data (vi) conclusion 2 . To produce rubber he mixes the latex with acid (ethanoic acid). (a) Based on the above statement. Tyre Balloon Shoe sole 2. write one suitable hypothesis. Your description should include the following. which rubber is more elastic? …………………………………………………………………………………… (d) Mark ( ü ) the objects which are made of natural rubber that has been processed as in rubber Q. (c) Based on this experiment. (b) Describe an experiment that you can carry out in a laboratory to prove this hypothesis.
