Austin Thai Chem 3AL, Sec. 103 March 5, 2010 Experiment #4: Discussion The unknowns were easily identified by our group after doing each and every part of the experiment, from finding whether the unknowns had a dipole moment or not, up to whether its density is heavier or lighter than water. The four unknowns that we got really depended on the solubility in water and the density related to water, as it really narrowed down the options on which the unknowns could be narrowed down to, as the knowns that were given to us weren’t mostly heavy compared to water, and the unknowns that we had were mostly heavier than water, narrowing it down greatly. The boiling points weren’t so accurate, but with estimates, it was possible to determine whether the unknown was, for example, octane or 1-pentanol. For most of our unknowns that we were given to find, the densities of them are above 1 g/mL, and therefore heavier than water, which eliminated most of the potential unknowns that were given on pg. 226. The dipole moments also
