To the first test tube, 0.2g of anhydrous sodium acetate was added, and the time required for a 4 degree rise in temperature was measured. For the second test tube, third test tube, and fourth test tube, five drops of pyridine and five drops of boron trifluoride etherate and five drops of sulfuric acid, respectively was added and the time for a 4 degree rise in
