Prabhleen Sidhu Chem 12A-49320 Lab Partner: Sarah Marks Introduction to Microscale Laboratory Conclusion The objective for Experiment 1 is to learn how to use the equipment in microscale laboratory. Learning to use the microscale approach will reduce the risk of fire and minimize the risk of hazardous substances. In the experiment, out of two instruments used in part 1, the graduated pipette yielded the most accurate results with a percent error of 8.214% when calculating the density of water and 3.33% when calculating the density of hexane. When measuring with the automatic pipette, the percent error for the density of water was 51.856% and for the density of hexane was 44.84%. This might have occurred because of the automatic pipette not being calibrated accurately. The automatic pipette should have resulted with the smallest

    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.
