    We conclude that method 2 is more accurate as the % error is less and that our oringal method had ±5% error. This is clearly backed up in our %errors as 4.8 is much closer to the actual value 4.76. The data that supports our % errors is the graph.

    This increase is attributed to the fact there is 1 more C-C bond and 2 more C-H bonds broken each time, which means the burning of the fuel is more exothermic so more heat will be given out to the surroundings and the enthalpy change will be greater.

    we wanted to ensure we had enough of the solution for the whole lab. Therefore the bubbles caused an inaccurate volume reading. The bubbles occupy a particular amount of volume and this means that the volume in the burette would in fact be less than the amount reported during trials.
