Unformatted text preview: Lab #1: Conservation Laws Summary: In Lab. #1: Conservation Laws we experimented with distilled water and acetone to see if mass and volume where conserved when the tow substances were mixed together. First we added 5mL of water and repeated these same steps until we reached a total of 25mL of water. Then in another beaker we did the same process with acetone, and we recorded the mass and volume. The mass and volume of all the mixtures were conserved. Discussion: Is mass conserved when tow liquids are mixed? Yes, we proved this in our experiment. For example, when we added 4.5017g of water with 3.441g of acetone we ended up with 7.9427g of water-acetone mixture. We can relate what is occurring to the Law of Conservation of Mass which states that mass is neither created nor destroyed. Every gram was conserved as a liquid in our mixture. I was confident that mass would be conserved between these liquids. The only way these liquid masses would not have been conserved is if the liquids evaporated into the air as a...
