  1. Enthalpy of paraffin wax Lab

    This will be done by using only one wax candle. The thermometer used throughout the experiment must be the same to ensure it doesn't cause random error. The water used must be from the same source to ensure it's qualities are the same. This will be done by using the same tap for the water. The system should be closed so that no energy is released to the atmosphere. Procedure 1. Weigh the candle and the can and note down their masses 2. Take 100g of water and pour it in the can 3.

    How the combustion of different types of food affect the amount of heat calories and energy yield emitted.

    Furthermore, he expects that the most 'fatty' food will burn for a longer period of time, require less assistance, and will be more thoroughly burnt will less ash deposit remaining. The bread is expected to burn the least unassisted, the cracker the most, with the cereal in between the two values. This prediction is based on the chemical construction of the foods. The cracker has the least amount of air-pockets, contributing to the assumption that it will engulf in the flame with more ease.

  7. Effect of Current on The Quantity of Products in Copper Purification Through Electrolysis

    Les �lectrons provenant de cuivre utiliseront l'�lectrolyte (le sulfate de cuivre) pour voyager entre les deux �lectrodes. Si le courant augmente, le nombre d'atomes de cuivre qui seront transf�r�s entre les deux �lectrodes augmentera lui aussi. Donc, la masse de cuivre produite n'a rien � faire sauf d'augmenter elle aussi. Bref, � partir de ceci je peux pr�dire qu'une augmentation du courant va provoquer une augmentation nette de la quantit� de produits, c'est-�-dire la masse de cuivre. 3) VARIABLES a)

  9. Determination of the molar volume of hydrogen gas

    As we are ready to start the experiment we fold the mg ribbon on the hook and put the stopper into the test tube so that when we tilt the test tube the mg ribbon can easily fall into the acid. It is important to wait for the reaction to finish completely so that the equipment returns back to room temperature.

  10. Research question - How many molecules are there in a liquid drop?

    3. We repeated step 2, with water, using 40, 60, 80 and 100 drops. This made the experiment more accurate i.e. gave a more precise mass of the water drop. 4. then, we repeated steps 3 and 4 with the three other liquids - ethanol, glycerine and ethylene glycol. 5. Values were noted down. Further calculations were made using the mole equation - Number of moles = And, also using Avogadro's constant, where the number of molecules in one mole of a substance is 6.023 � 10��. Controlling, varying and monitoring the variables - > The independent variable was varied by using not one, but four different types of liquid.

  13. Titration of commercial products

    + NaOH (aq) --> Na+CH3COO-(aq) + H2O (l) Experimentally, it shows that a mole of acetic acid (CH3COOH) reacts with a mole of magnesium hydroxide (NaOH) (both in aqueous state) to form a mole of Na+CH3COO- and a mole of water. Since 1 dm3 gives one mole of NaOH, the amount used in this experiment (4.95ml) is equivalent to a total of 4.95x10-3 mol. Hence, it reacts with the same amount (in moles) of acetic acid. Then, provided the molar mass of acetic acid (60g mol-1), it can be deduced that 4.95x10-3 mol weights 0.297g: (60g mol-1 * 4.95x10-3 mol = 0.297g)

  18. Enthalpy of Combustion of Alcohols Lab

    Enthalpies of formation are usually obtained directly from combustion experiments. ?Hc is measured in calories. ?H = mC?T IN THIS EXPERIMENT: We will burn measured masses of a series of alcohols, and calculate the amount of each alcohol burned. Assume that the energy produced is transferred to a measured volume of water, the temperature change of which is calculated. The enthalpy change involved in the combustion of one mole of each alcohol can then be calculated and compared. SAFETY DATA Butan-1-ol FLAMMABLE, Keep away from flames.

    Each range of light is defined by the range of frequencies of light vibration. This means that a specific color of light has a frequency. (b) the energy of each photon of light => Light is energy. Photon is an energy packet and it behaves like a particle. Each photon contains different energy. We can know the different colors in the spectrum by the each energy of photon.

    Food irradiation has remedied the scarcity of food but it might cause more harm than good. The application of nuclear chemistry enables the world to preserve produce, meats and dairy products for a longer period of time while keeping the same quality and taste. Gamma rays destroy the majority of bacteria and fungi in the food to sanitize the product of germs, making it safe for patients in the hospital to consume because they need to be surrounded by a sterile environment.
