1.Why did the chemist grind up the sample before experimenting on it ?
2.What can you deduce from the fact that no mysterium was produced in this experiment?
3.Describe how the chemist might produce a sample of hysterium from the rock.
4. Explain why you think that your method may work
5. Explain where you think mysterium is placed in the reactivity series of the metals.
