The density of the final product was determined and used to calculate its percentage of alcoholand proof, which were determined to be 75.82% by volume and its proof was 151.64.IntroductionDistillation is a process in which substances can be separated. In this experiment we distilled alcohol us-ing a table wine, which allowed us to separate the water from the alcohol in the mixture, giving us a prod-uct with a higher alcohol percentage by volume. We repeated the process four times to observe the changein alcohol level as more distillate fractions were collected and the change in the boiling point of the tablewine as the alcohol was separated. We were then able to calculate the alcohol percentage of our most con-centrated mixture, that of the first fraction, by finding its density and comparing it to a list of known alco-
