Objective: The objective of this lab is to construct a student to be more advanced and competent in measuring the flash point. With the implementation of different devices we were able to retain data from the experiment. Introduction: In the petroleum industry, crude oil properties are commonly used for designing oil transportation systems and facilities. One important property of crude that must be known is measuring the flash point particularly due to the safety issue in oil storage. It is defined as the temperature at which oil must be heated in order to give enough vapor to form a flammable mixture of air. “Therefore, temperature is the key to determine the concentration of evaporated flammable liquid in the air.

    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.
