Carlos Caceres Mixed Melting Points Part 1- After obtaining a compound, it was heated twice for accuracy. The first time gave a general estimate of the melting point range and the second gave a more accurate MPR. The MPR was found using a machine and seeing at what temperature the compound started melting until what temperature the compound was completely melted. These two numbers made up the MPR. After collecting all the data from everyone in the class, people would try and find another person who had a very similar MPR range. The two students got together, mixed part of their compounds together, and found the MPR for the mixed compound. If the MPR from the original compound and the new mixed compound were exactly the same, then the two students had the same compound. If it wasn’t exactly the same, then the mixed compounds were different. This is due to the solubility of compounds. If the compounds were soluble, then IMF are broken and the MPR is lowered. If they weren’t soluble, then each compound has to melt separately, lowering the MPR. Part 2- When creating a diagram for the data collected, only one trial had to be removed
