Michael Patino 01115539 Chem 1122-Trupta Experiment 1- Introduction to Laboratory Techniques Objective / Aim of the lab- The objective of this lab is to allow the experimenter to get familiar with common laboratory equipment and techniques. This lab allowed me to learn how to use basic laboratory equipment that I am most likely going to use throughout the entire semester. This will be key for me succeed in Chem 1122, and to keep safety in check. Another objective was so that I could understand the uncertainties of measurements, propagation in calculations, and to have a better understanding with significant figures. Introduction/background information- During part one of our experiment laboratory measuring devices, my partner and I recorded the volume of water, and the uncertainty in measurement for each apparatus demonstrated. We concluded that the 50-mL burette was the most accurate device, while the 100-mL graduated cylinder was the least accurate. When using a 100-mL graduated cylinder, we made sure to
