Surname 1 Abstract This experiment was carried out to identify different compounds based on their density values. The density was found through the micro scale formula that is the density was determined with a pycnometer. After determination of the various densities of the unknown liquids, each was matched with the closest lying value and the identity discovered. The refractive indices of the various compound was also determined using a refractometer and the results matched with the data given in the tables. The relationship between density and the refractive index showed a direct proportionality after matching the results, in that the higher the density, the higher the refractive index and vice versa. This experiment upheld the value of using precision in measurements and the use of microscale techniques in measurements. Introduction Density forms a very fundamental characteristic of any physical matter. The density of a

    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.
