February 14 th , 2007 Crystal Growth Experiment (Cont.) Results: Upon removing the insulation around the beaker we realized we had placed the seed crystal too low in the solution resulting in the crystal sticking to the bottom of the beaker. Our crystal became a long strand of many different crystals. The largest crystal on our strand measured 1.25 cm, and a height of .3 cm. Group D managed to grow the largest crystal that measured 1.3 in length, 1.2 in width, and .6 in height. In the end our beaker contained 58mL of solution. The weight of the crystals and the beaker were 76.1 grams, which brought the weight of the crystals to 25.5 grams.

Unformatted text preview: This makes the initial weight of crystals over the remaining bolume to be .25ml Sketch: Conclusion: Our goal was not met because our group failed to grow the largest crystal mainly because we placed the seed crystal too far down into our solution. Had we tied it up higher we may have grown a larger crystal. While our crystal was the longest the width and height were very small. The insulation was also most likely another reason that our crystal turned out as small as it did as we only used a sock and a glass covering which provided no seal....
