Lets Review Section Pg. 24 The Tools of Quantitative Chemistry Copper conducts electricity (wires) and heat (pots) well. Also copper is a coinage metal along with silver. It is one of the eight essential metals in our bodies needed for enzymes to use oxygen more effectively.

A flask that contains 125 mL has a volume of 125 cm^3 1 L = 1 dm ^3 Mass 1 kg= 1000g and 1g = 1000 mg Lets Review Chapter 2 Precision: how well several determinations of the same quantity agree Accuracy: agreement of a measurement with the accepted value of the quantity Experimental Error Error= experimentally determined value- accepted value Percent Error Percent Error= error in measurement/accepted value x 100% Standard Deviation: A series of measurements is equal to the square root of the sum of the squares of the deviations for each measurement from the average divided by one less than the number of measurements. STEPS 1. First find average mass 2. Then square that number and only take the first significant number. 0.006 squared is 3.6e-5 then to 4e-5. 3. Even though the determination is 5 you take one less which is 4. You add all the standard deviations which in this case is
26e-5. Then the final standard deviation will be the square

### What students are saying

• 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.
