Unformatted text preview: Vapor Pressure and Heat of Vaporization (Lab #13) Jesse LaSalle TA: Guang Li Experiment Completed: January 22, 2008 Report Submitted: January 29, 2008 I) Purpose : To determine a known and unknown liquids heat of vaporization as well as to compare vaporization heats for a series of related compounds. II) Procedure : Casey, J. and R. Tatz (2008). Vapor Pressure and Heat of Vaporization.. General Chemistry Laboratory Experiments , Hayden McNeil. Vol.2: 33-35. III) Data : (See attached report form.) (See figures 1 and 2, attached.) IV) Calculations : P s of Heptane at volume = 6mL = ( - * Ps Pb 1 VRV TTR = *( - Ps 743 1 56300293 = . Ps 109 04 mm Hg H Vap of Heptane H = - Vap slope x R H =-- .

The main potential source of error lies in accepting other students observations. If they did not follow the procedure exactly, then all the data obtained from them would be inaccurate, thus causing errors...
