Introduction The proposed particle in a box experiment uses theories from quantum mechanisms in order to determine and prove the behavior of a molecule. In the experiment performed, various dye molecules were observed using a Spectronic 21 spectrophotometer to determine their wavelengths of maximum . . .

Introduction This laboratory experiment placed an emphasis on the determination of the order of reaction and ultimately the rate constant and activation energy of the bromate-bromide reaction. The rate equation of this reaction is represented by: -d[BrO3-] / dt = k [BrO3-]x [Br-]y [H+]z Hence, by using . . .
I. Introduction The term enthalpy is used to describe the thermodynamic potential of a system. Heat of reaction, one form of enthalpy, is the energy given off by a substance upon combustion. It can be measured using a Parr bomb, which is an adiabatic container, held at a constant volume that ignites a . . .
Introduction During this laboratory experiment, a gas chromatograph was used to analyze the ethanol and butanol content of solutions of known mass ratios, and then construct a calibration curve using calculated area ratios from the graphs produced by the gas chromatograph. A solution of unknown mass ratio . . .
