To get the desired results all of the measurements had to be precisely accurate and fully planned before hand. In Exercise D especially, the factor of planning became increasingly essential. The first attempt at 2D was unsuccessful due to several reasons. the measurements, which were taken, could have possibly been inaccurate and the 60-mL syringe containing H 2 SO 4 also dripped into one of the cups early which did not allow the reaction to fully take place. timer and precise planning in its use. The second attempt at 2D contained errors as well. The measurements were still not as accurate as they should have been, and the solution did not appear entirely uniform. In one cup, for example, the first drop of KMnO 4 left a persistent pink color, and then after over a minute, it returned back to being clear. It then took several milliliters more to get it back to a pink color. Miscalculations involving numbers and amounts of solutions would have a severe effect upon the results. Mathematical errors may also have of occurred.
