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, Δ

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....

    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.
