Vishal Korlipara Chemistry 1310 B2 902504215 Discussion In Part A, the final molecular weight was calculated to an average of 12.1. This large error could have been incurred from evaporating too much of the unknown liquid. From the smell, it could be hypothesized that it is acetone; however more error could be incurred here from an observer with sinus problems. Part B returned the expected results. A syringe had the pointed end attached to a TI-89 gas pressure sensor. As the plunger was pushed down, thus reducing the volume of the gas, the pressure increased. Similarly, as the plunger was pulled up, thus increasing the volume of the gas, the pressure decreased. A plot of V v/s 1/P resulted in almost a straight line, thus showing that volume and pressure of a gas are inversely related, which is in accordance with Boyle’s law. In Part C, an Erlenmeyer flask is put into a water bath that is placed on a hot plate. The temperature of the hot plate is increased, thus increasing the temperature of the water bath, thus increasing the temperature of the gas. The temperature was recorded using a traditional thermometer,
