Spring 2007 Chemistry 20L Help for the Error Analysis of Experiment #2 Post-Lab Report Procedures for calculating inherent error for the final solution *The term Δ [Solution 1] / [Solution 1] or Δ [Solution 2] / [Solution 2] is often referred to as inherent error in the lab manual and often expressed as the percentage error. It is sometimes referred to as relative error or % relative error. There is no unit associated with inherent error or relative error. Step 1: [Solution 1] = (wt. of the food dye / M.W.) / 0.10000L Step 2: % inherent error of [Solution 1]: " [Solution 1] [Solution 1] = " (mass of Food - dye) (mass of Food - dye) + " (Volumetric Flask) 100.00mL * Absolute errors (i.e. Δ volumetric flask,

Unformatted text preview: Δ pipet etc.) for all the lab equipment are listed on p. 31 in the manual. Step 3: [Solution 2] = [Solution 1] * 10.00ml / 100.00 ml % inherent error of [Solution 2]: " [Solution 2] [Solution 2] = " [Solution 1] [Solution 1] + " (Volumetric Pipet) 10.00mL + " (Volumetric Flask) 100.00mL Note: " [Solution 1] [Solution 1] = inherent error for solution 1. Step 4 and on: Continue to propagate the error for the remaining solutions (i.e. solution 3, solution 4, etc.) until you reach the inherent error for the last solution. As you can see, the inherent error for each solution will depend on the previous solution and that's why it is not practical to dilute the solution too many times....
