Unformatted text preview: solution must not vary in solubility depending on the temperature. The data we obtained seemed somewhat congruent with the theory. Our % yield seemed a little higher than normal after extraction, perhaps due to moisture. This was supported by letting the samples dry for a week and reweighing them. Moisture could have potentially add a lot of weight, especially when dealing with such tiny samples (less than a third of a gram). Both after extraction and Recrystalization the melting points were almost identical, pointing to the fact that very little impurities were in the glassware during the experiment. Potential sources of error include: weighing moisture, spillage, not being able to weigh all of the solid when it sticks to the glass, and cooling after Recrystalization too quickly. All in all, the data was consistent and pointed to the fact that the acid/base/neutral unknown was indeed 1:1:1 ratio, and was separated properly....
