    Introduction: The melting point of a pure substance is a characteristic that is physically consistent with each specific substance. When a substance is impure, it causes the melting point to decrease and the range of the melting point to increase. In order to identify a pure substance, it must be purified in order to get an accurate melting point estimation. Purification can be done through crystallization. Crystallization is one of the simplest and most effecting ways to purify a solid. The procedure

    Thus, the hypothesis that when salt is sprinkled on ice, a brine is made with the surface of the water, which lowers the freezing temperature of water and starts melting the ice that the brine is in contact with. Compare results with info found in research. Site sources. Consider sources of uncertainty in your measurements. This is an important result as it shows that table salt helps ice cubes melt faster, which

    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

    The phenomenon of freezing point depression has many practical uses. The radiator fluid in an automobile is a mixture of water and ethylene glycol (antifreeze). As a result of freezing point depression, radiators do not freeze in winter (unless it is extremely cold, e.g. −30 to −40 °C (−22 to −40 °F)). Road salting takes advantage of this effect to lower the freezing point of the ice it is placed on. Lowering the freezing point allows the street ice to melt at lower temperatures, preventing the accumulation

    mixture was separated into its pure benzocaine and benzoic acid portions. This could be proven by matching the melting points of the substituents obtained at the end of the lab to the average melting points found in several chemistry databases. In other words, the melting points of the purified benzocaine and benzoic acid compounds (93.2˚C and 131˚C, respectively) reflect a similar melting points to the documented 89˚C and 122.41˚C of the pure compounds found in nature. Although, the results was collected

    determine this, one must compare a multitude of factors. In this lab, the freezing point depression of water, enthalpy of dissolution, cost, and environmental impact will be discussed. A large factor in how effective a substance is as a deicer is it’s ability to decrease the freezing point of water. If the freezing point of water can be lowered, the outside temperature must be much colder to reach this new freezing point, resulting in less ice on the roads. These results a somewhat inaccurate due to

    The suspense helped drive it along. Karen Rhodes said “The suspense as gripping; Will he get the fire built in time? Will he live?” The suspense never dies down at all, it keeps building up. However, it’s not noticeable to the point of cheesy horror film. The most suspenseful it gets is when the dog refuses to get close to him and the story says “He was losing in his battle with the frost.” The sentences afterwards lose the suspense since there is nothing the man can do to survive

    THE MPEMBA EFFECT Erin Splaine Deerfield School Grade 8 Abstract The reason for this experiment was to find a faster way to freeze water by simply changing the temperature. The way this was accomplished was by heating an amount of water while leaving an equivalent amount at room temperature, then freezing both amounts of water and determining which freezes first. The heated water ended up freezing completely first, even though the cooler water started to freeze first. These findings tell us that

    My research topic for this science fair is: Does Ice melt faster in water, coke, apple juice? I was interested in this topic because it would cool to know what drink would have the biggest effect on the ice. During research I fould out that ice melts at a temperature of 32 degrees farhenhiet. Pressure can also alter the amount of time it takes for an ice cube to melt. It would be interesting to see what type of impact that these drinks would have. During my experiment I hope to find that out

    The melting point of the experimentally synthesized Aspirin product was found to be between 126-129 ˚C. This temperature range of initial to final melting point has a small and sharp temperature range of only 3˚C, which is within the acceptable limits of the 128-137˚C1 literature value for Aspirin (Acetylsalicylic Acid/2-acetoxybenzoic acid), if located slightly toward the beginning of the literature melting temperature range. Therefore, the narrow melting point range, which falls within the standard

The following lab period the solid was weighed (0.0483 g) and percent yield was calculated (65.5%) with the limiting reagent being tetraphenylcyclopentadienone. The melting point was determined. The first melting point was 204-204.9 °C and the second melting point was 215.6-215.9°C. Finally, an infrared spectroscopy was obtained for the

    Introduction: When a snowboard is “waxed” this means that performance grade ski wax is melted by a hot iron onto the base of the snowboard and spread out evenly. This wax fills the tiny cuts and scraps of the polyethylene base, that snow tends to stick to, and creates a smooth surface. This helps protect the base of the snowboard from being worn and makes the board glide over snow easier. The purpose of this guide is to instruct beginner level snowboarders how to apply wax to the base of their

    become electrically neutral. Salt causes freezing point depression when combined with ice. In order for salt to begin the melting process, it must come in contact with water. Fortunately, a thin film of water can generally be found on top of ice and snow. As the top layer of water tries to freeze the salt gets in the way. The total number of water molecules captured by the ice per second goes down, therefore the rate of freezing goes down. The melting occurs faster than the freezing because it is not

    1) Sodium Chloride’s melting point is 800.7° which matches the observation acquired for this compound. Sucrose’s melting point is 185.5° which also resembles the results from the experiment. Glycerin’s melting point is 18.1° which is very logical since Glycerin is a liquid at room temperature. The only discrepancy is sodium hydrogen carbonate’s melting point, which is 50°, this does not match the recorded results, because sodium hydrogen carbonate was still in solid

    E. Discussion: In order to synthesize the polymer, Nylon 6,10, we had to complete a few steps to create the chemical reaction that combined sebacoyl chloride and hexamethylenediamine. First we measured the mass of the two graduated cylinders when they were empty, and measured it again after they were filled with sebacoyl chloride and hexamethylenediamine. We did this in order to find the measurements of the reactants. When we measured the graduated cylinder when they were emptied, one weighed at
