Experiment Description: To begin the experiment, 2.0718g of a benzoic acid and p-dichlorobenzene mixture and 30 ml of methylene chloride was placed in a separatory funnel. The funnel was shook to dissolve the contents. After shaking, the funnel was inverted and the stopcock was opened to release the pressure. The stopcock was closed, the funnel was shook, and the pressure was released again. This was repeated until no more gas was released.
