Purpose: During this investigation, you will
predict the redox processes occurring
within a variety of electrolytic cells and
then empirically test these predictions
in the lab. Unfortunately, there is not
enough apparatus for each pair
Smelly lab (synthesizing an ester)
To produce some esters and smell em.
Selecting one carboxylic acid and one alcohol from those available, and using sulfuric
acid as a catalyst, react the two in a warm water bath, noting changes in odour
Alkene and alkyne nomenclature
Now that we have (generally) sorted out how to name alkanes, we can essentially name
every other type of simple organic molecule; lets begin with alkenes and alkynes.
They may be easier for some of us to name than alkanes, f
Testing the equilibrium principle of the eminent Henri Le Chtelier
In this lab experience you will apply stresses to five different chemical systems. You
will first predict in which direction each system will shift as a result of the applied
The BLT is it a salty sandwich or a useful,
salty acid/base theory?
During this investigation you will be testing the
ability of Brnsted-Lowry theory to predict the
acid/base behaviour of a variety of salts. Simply
put, you will dissolve these in water an
The preparation of a useful buffer solution.
. that is to say, one that is capable of maintaining a relatively constant pH upon the
addition of small quantities of strong acid or strong base. We are checking the ability to
buffer only, not buffering capac
