Experiment 2: Vapor Pressure of Liquids Lacey Frigaard Lab Partner: Sam Thompson February 5, 2008 Section: 13 Purpose: To determine the relationship between the vapor pressure of a liquid and its temperature by using a Pressure Sensor and temperature Probe. Also, to determine the heat of vaporization of methanol using the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation.

I. DATA AND CALCULATIONS Atmospheric Pressure: 98.9 kPa Table 1: Temperature and Pressure Data Substance Methanol Methanol Methanol Methanol Ethanol Trial 1 2 3 4 1 Temp (C) 23.6 31.1 12.6 4.1 23.4 Temp (K) 296.6 304.1 285.6 277.1 296.4 Measured Pressure (kPa) 112.4 122.1 103.6 96.8 103.7 Air Pressure (kPa) (no correction) 98.9 (corrected) 101.4 (corrected) 95.2 (corrected) 92.4 (no correction) 98.9 Vapor Pressure (kPa) 13.5 20.7 8.4 4.4 4.8 II. PROCESSING THE DATA AND OBSERVATIONS 1. Temp in K = Temp in C + 273 2. (P1/T1) = (P2/T2) (P1/T1)*T2 = P2 corrected Allow P1 and T1 to be the Air Pressure and Temperature in Kelvin for Trial 1. T2 will vary for trials 2 through 4. Calculate P2, the corrected air pressure, for trials 2 through 4 only.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
