In part one, we set up the apparatus as we were told. By following the procedure, we equlatized the pressure inside and ouside of the flasks. Then we spilled the catalyst into the peroxide solution contained in the flask. Then we placed this into water to equlibriate the temperature of the flasks. It turned out that heat was absorbed in this reaction. Then we were able to measure the amount of oxygen produced because it equaled the displacement of water. The balanced equation for part one is 2H2O(g) ->2H2O(l)+O2(g). Our results for the molar volume of O2 were 32.19L/m. This value was pretty close to the expected value. However, the minor difference may be accounted for because we had trouble in the beginning balancing the pressure inside and outside the flask and may have

Unformatted text preview: not totally balanced it correctly. In the end, it all turned out to work out though. In part two we wanted to find the molar volume of Hydrogen. We followed to same steps as we did in part one, and eventually found out that H2 had a molar volume of 26.27L/m. The balanced equation for part two is Mg(s)+2HCl(aq)->MgCl2(aq)+H2(g). This value was also very close to our expected value, and since we had already gone through those steps, I felt we were able to do part two with much more efficiency and accuracy, even though there may have been minor errors such as in balancing the pressure and possibly skewing the temperature reading by not being very careful with the thermometer....

    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.
