Chemical Reactions: Investigating an Industrial Accident

The calm of the night is shattered by an explosion and flames: a chemical factory is on fire, and a dangerous gas is drifting across town! This book looks at the topic of chemical reactions to explain the properties of chemicals and how they react, what has caused the explosion, and how the resulting fire and pollution can be tackled. It shows how the emergency services use their knowledge of science and technology to make the factory safe, and how investigators can analyze the evidence to determine the cause of the disaster.

Reviews

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Each of these multipurpose volumes opens with an example of a generic accident or incident, then goes on to present evidence gathered by investigators–with explanations of the scientific principles and procedures employed to understand it–and invitations to readers to sift the clues, make the calculations, and draw conclusions for themselves." - School Library Journal
