The calculations are as follows: (T1 s + T2 s )/2 = (86 oC + 88 oC )/2 = 87 oC (T1 c + T2 c )/2 = (90 oC + 91 oC )/2 = 90.5 oC The average range was determined to be 87 oC to 90.5 oC Conclusion: Reducing the procedure led to a 42.7 percent yield, which is about half of what was expected. Also, the sample of alum obtained was slightly less pure than a perfectly pure sample. 2 3...
