Chemistry 235 Due the week of Jan. 25-29, 2010 Organic I George A. O’Doherty Quiz #2 Name There is a total of 10 points for this quiz. Answer all questions in the space provided. [I] (5 points) Using the same sample and identical Mel-temp apparatuses two students ( A and B ) measured two different melting temperatures. Student A measured a m.p. of 100°C, while student B measured a m.p. of 102°C. The T.A. noticed that student A ’s Mel-temp was heating the sample at a faster heating rate. a) (2 point) Given this information which m.p. measurement (Student A or B ) is more likely to be the correct m.p.? b) (2 points) Why? c) (1 point) If you believed the actually m.p. was 103°C, which of the following action would most likely lead to the measurement of the correct higher temperature (circle the correct answer below)? A. To measure the m.p. using a faster Mel-temp heating rate. B. To measure the m.p. using a slower Mel-temp heating rate. [II] (5 points) Indicate (by writing either
