General Chemistry laboratory, Chem18 Experiment # 7 Date of Experiment: 11/8/2011 Date of Submission: 11/15/2011 Abstract: This lab was performed in four parts: the first part determined the density of a given unknown liquid, the second part used micro boiling-point determination to determine the boiling point of the unknown liquid, the third part used ISIS Draw software to draw the skeletal structures of the eleven possible unknown liquids, and the last part used FT-IR instrumentation to measure the infrared spectrum of the unknown liquid. The first two parts established an average density of 0.893 g/mL and an average boiling point of 79 ̊ C. The 95% confidence interval of the density was (.880, .906) and (77, 80) for boiling point. This means that both of the measured values lie within the interval, and reported with 95% confidence, the true value of the density and the true value of the boiling point are within their respective intervals. According to the confidence

The top three possibilities of the unknown liquid were ethyl acetate, isopropyl acetate, and normal propyl acetate based on the relative errors of accuracy of the liquid. The relative errors in accuracy were as follows: 2.7% for ethyl acetate, 11% for isopropyl acetate, and 22% for normal propyl acetate. Therefore, the only real possibility is ethyl acetate, as the other two liquids have substantial errors in accuracy, and none of the other liquids come close to the confidence interval or both measured values. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 Name Liz Zharovsky Bench C19 Lab day and section Tuesday - 2 TA Ramyaa Mathialagan Partner N/A Title: States of Matter...

    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.
