Questions 1. Accidents: a. Sand’s molecular formula is SiO 2 . It is a nonpolar tetrahedral covalently bonded molecule. Compound X is a polar molecule. Therefore sand does not change the intermolecular forces of compound X. This is why the researcher did not need to worry about a few grains of salt. b. This is not a valid assumption. Baking soda’s molecular formula is NaHCO 3 . It is a polar ionic bonded molecule. Therefore the polarity of the molecule do effect the polarity of the compound X molecule. These interactions can change the intermolecular forces, and would change the melting point of the sample. 2. The approximate mole fraction of A:B mixture is 6:4 or 2:8. Both compositions share similar melting point ranges. The only way to tell the exact composition of the sample is to create another mixture of either 6:4 or 2:8 and then mix the sample with this new mixture. If the melting point is depressed then they are not the same composition.

    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.
