Scenario B

Now that you have had the chance to observe how a real syringe behaves, let’s see if you can use what you have learned to make a prediction. Imagine that you are using a real syringe and following each of the steps below one at a time (don’t actually try it until you have made your prediction first). Predict what you think will happen after you release the plunger. Click the “continue” button in the diagram to go through the steps. If you ever need to go back, just click on the step you wish to go back to.

If you do not have a real syringe available, you may use the syringe simulator instead to see what happens.
