| For this experiment the UNKNOWN
- Be a liquid (with
"low" vapor pressure)
at room temperature
- Boil below 100 șC
- Obey the Ideal Gas Law as a
The reaction mixture is heated in a boiling water bath.
The liquid in the flask will
boil and displace the air.
CAUTION: Boiling water can scald you.
Remember to use a guard ring clamp (not shown) to prevent the beaker of boiling
water from falling!!!
After all the liquid has boiled off,
continue heating for an additional 2-4 minutes to insure the temperature of the vapor in
the flask is the same as that of the boiling water. Take the temperature of the boiling
