1. Acetone would not be a better solvent compared to water. Acetone has a low boiling point (56.5 C, according to MSDS), so it will evaporate before dissolving the crude acetanilide. The consequence would be that the solid will not dissolve, and the experiment will not be carried out. 2. Student A did not reheat after adding decolorizing carbon to insure that it came in contact with all the solution. Student A also should have performed gravity filtration with the reheated hot solution. After performing the gravity filtration he should have let it cool down to room temperature and placed it in an ice bath. The

Unformatted text preview: crystals may have precipitated in the filter because the solution was not warm. If this is the case, the student can pour a small amount of warm water through the filter to dissolve the crystals. 3. The melting point of solid X with 1% solid Y will be higher than 125 degrees C. In the lab, the melting point of the crude sample was higher than the melting point of the recrystalized acetanilide because the crude sample contained impurities which caused the melting point to be higher. 4....

    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.

    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.
