the neck with an ice-water bath. Place this apparatus on a stir plate, and turn the stirrer
on and set for vigorous stirring without splashing Note: The solid may not completely

Set up a separatory funnel on an iron ring above the Erlenmeyer such that the tip
of the separatory funnel is in the flask. Be sure the separatory funnel is below eye level
