    Advancement in chemical research has given companies the ability to make increasingly more effective products. These companies are allowed to manufacture goods with newly discovered synthetic compounds, often without much rigorous testing to determine if they are safe. An apparent correlation between the recent use of industrial chemicals and occurrences of disease in the population has been found, suggesting that they may be harmful to people’s health. Studies have shown that many commonly used

  • Separation Of A Mixture Lab Report

    of an unknown substance using its melting/freezing point. To do so, we first heated up the substance until it melted, by using a hot water bath. Next, we let it cool at a constant rate while measuring its temperature data using an online program. From this data, we were then able to obtain a melting/freezing point for that data, which was found to be 61.0°C. Once we had that information, we compared it to accepted values of various alcohols and acids. We found the unknown substance used in this lab

  • Molar Relationships Lab Report

    425 Words  | 2 Pages

    unknown compounds? The numbers of moles and the identities of the compounds are the only given. To be able to identify the compounds the mass, molar mass and the number of moles will be needed. Molar mass is the quantity in grams of one mole of a substance. The molar mass is found by adding the number of grams of each element to find the total amount of grams per mole. For example CaH2 has the elements of Calcium which has the molar mass of (40.078g/mole) and two Hydrogen which is (2 x 1.0079 g/mol)

  • Sludge Lab Report

  • Unknown Crystals

    532 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Identity of the unknown, in this case unknown A, was determined to be acetyl salicylic acid. This was determined by comparing the melting points of the purified unknown crystals to the crude unknown. The known melting point range for acetyl salicylic acid is 135°C -136°C. The Unknown’s melting point was slightly off at 128.6°C - 132°C. This can be due to impurities of the crystals during the purification process. There were a few steps in the experiment that may have contributed to impurities

  • Lab Report For The Concentration Of Unknown Acid

    1271 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction How do you find the concentration of an unknown acid? The law of conservation of mass will be observed in this lab because in a balanced or neutralized equation the number of moles of the acid is equal to the number of moles of the base. An equation that will be observed is that when an acid and a base are combined in a reaction they will produce salt and water. In order to properly conduct this lab procedure many different properties of acids and bases need to be understood. Acids have
