Alka Seltzer and the Ideal Gas Law
Purpose – When Alka Seltzer reacts with water, CO2 gas is produced. In this lab, you will collect the gas given off from this reaction. Using the mass difference, you will determine the mass lost by the process, and thus the mass of CO2 produced. You will use the ideal gas law to calculate the number of moles of gas produced, and from this, the molar mass of CO2.
Materials: Erlenmeyer flask, Alka Seltzer tablets, mortar and pestle, 9-inch round balloon, scoop, thermometer, barometer, scissors
1. Fill a flask to overflowing with tap water.
2. Obtain 3 Alka Seltzer tablets and crush.
3. Get a large, round balloon and remove the air from it.
4. Place the tablets in the balloon and attach carefully to the flask (balloon hangs to side).
5. Use electrical tape or duct tape to secure the balloon tightly to the flask.
6. Place the balloon upright to start the reaction.
7. As the reaction continues, hold the balloon and invert the tube several times to ensure completion.
8. After all bubbling stops, measure the circumference of the balloon with a string. If the balloon is misshapen, try to push it into the shape of a sphere while measuring the circumference.
9. Place the system on the electronic balance. Record this mass.
10. Grab the top of the balloon and flatten a small section. Make a small cut in the balloon and slowly release the gas. Record the new mass. Be sure that no water leaves the balance.
11. Record the room temperature and the barometric pressure below.
1. Circumference of balloon:
2. Mass of system before releasing gas:
3. Mass of system after punctur...


Extraction of benzoic acid and benzocaine - Organic Chemistry - Lab report

663 words - 3 pages Extraction In this lab, extraction was used to separate and purify a mixture of benzoic acid and benzocaine. For a successful extraction process to occur the liquids must obtain the following properties. The liquids being used must be insoluble when mixed together therefore forming layers, acquire different densities to allow separation, have different solubilities, and the liquids should not react with the compounds to allow isolation of the

This concept deals with a how reagent will choose a functional group to react with, resulting in the formation of the major product. Our lab studied 6 reactions: three oxidation and three reduction of the three compounds

715 words - 3 pages Name: Nhung Ly Date: 05/05/2018 Group I Cations Abstract: Qualitative analysis is a branch of analytical chemistry that deals with the separation and identification of the components of matter - what is present, not how much is present. There are many common qualitative analysis schemes that separate the ions into groups based on selective precipitation. Although sophisticated instrumental techniques have replaced much of the traditional wet

895 words - 4 pages NFHS – Chem I - HONORS Calorimetry Lab – Specific Heat of a Metal Calorimetry Lab – Specific Heat of a Metal Abstract Chemists can identify substances on the basis of their chemical and physical properties. One unique physical property of a substance is the amount of energy it will absorb per unit of mass. This property can be measured quite accurately and is called specific heat (Cp). Specific heat is the amount of energy measured in joules

Heat of Combustion of Solid Magnesium using Hydrochloric Acid and Magnesium Oxide in a calorimeter. - AP Chemistry - Lab report

634 words - 3 pages Free Heat of Combustion: Magnesium In this experiment, you will use Hess’s law as you determine a heat of a reaction that would be difficult to obtain by direct measurement—the heat of combustion of magnesium ribbon. The reaction is represented by the equation: Mg(s) + 1/2 O​2​(g) → MgO(s) This is the target equation. This equation can be obtained by combining equations (1), (2), and (3): (1) MgO(s) + 2 HCl(aq) → MgCl​2​(aq) + H​2​O(l) (2

Conclusion: The purpose of this lab experiment was to show us, students, the relationship between the amplitude (cm), the mass of the bob (gm) and the length of the string (L) and how it all relates to the period (T) of a pendulum. We can see that

The dissolved oxygen, saturation, nitrate, and phosphate levels were slightly low but still in the ideal range for a healthy river to host a variety of species throughout. From the analysis of all this data collected, we were able to confirm our hypothesis is healthy. Conclusion: This Lab has allowed the students who visited the Rose River a view on what
