Q: I have a science experiment I need to do for school. The question is “What chemicals are present in river water compared to ocean and storm water?” What do I need to do/use to find out the answer?

    Are they expecting you to collect river water, ocean water and rain water and run actual chemical tests on it? Or are you supposed to just look up the answers in your textbook?

    It could really depend a lot on what your instructors expectations are, I suggest talking to your classmates and your instructor about the project.
