timing starts at 0 seconds, and thus the whole record from time 0 to the end is all needed * The scale of the y-axis is used because the lowest temperature recorded is 10 and the highest value is 27, so the scale below 10 is not needed.

Conclusion

This will mean that energy will be taken from other molecules, and thus the average kinetic energy will be reduced, which will cause a drop in temperature. Cyclohexane is non-polar, so the intermolecular forces will be weaker, as it only have van der Waals' forces, and thus it is easier to break the bonds for evaporation, and thus the temperature change is larger. * The second experiment is a test with butanol. The decrease in temperature is only a little, because the chemical is polar and thus the intermolecular forces are stronger than non-polar, making it harder to evaporate, and that is why the temperature decrease for evaporation is slight. 3. Evaluation * The data attained by the experiments may not be accurate, since the contact between the thermometer may not be full, and thus the decrease in temperature is not properly recorded * Some of the temperature of the chemicals may not b recorded as I is out of range of the thermometer, which in turns result in inaccurate data.

    Na --> Ar o The ions across the period have the same ionic structure, but an increase in the number of protons increases the electrostatic forces between the protons and electrons. Thus, the radius decreases. o Ions are isoelectronic, meaning that they have a similar electronic structure which resembles noble gas structures.

    All the hydrocarbons were insoluble in bromine water. All of the mixtures from layers, sometimes different colored to the original color of the mixtures. This shows that a small reaction did occur between toluene and bromine water as well as cyclohexene and bromine water. Cyclohexane produced no color change as both the substances remained colorless.

    Distribution is shifted towards a higher energy, so that even if the distribution at a higher temperature was the same as at a lower temperature, the number of molecules with Ea would increase. 2) The wider distribution means even more molecules have required activation energy 14.

Unfortunately, we had no instrument to measure the deflection but our own eyes.

  2. The chemistry of atmospheric and water pollution.

    Replace CFCs with compounds which have significantly lower ozone depletion potentials (ODP) such as hyfrochloroflurocarbons (HCFCs). These compounds are effective as they are attacked while in the lower atmosphere thus it does not reach the stratosphere to attack ozone. However these compounds are more expensive and in some cases less effective than CFCs in various applications.
