Properties of Solutions: Electrolytes and Non-Electrolytes

Experiment #13 from Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Write equations for the dissociation of compounds in water.
  • Use a Conductivity Probe to measure the conductivity of solutions.
  • Determine which molecules or ions are responsible for conductivity of solutions.
  • Investigate the conductivity of solutions resulting from compounds that dissociate to produce different numbers of ions.

Liquid Chromatography

Experiment #18 from Advanced Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Conduct an isocratic, liquid-chromatographic separation.
  • Conduct a step gradient, liquid-chromatographic separation.
  • Complete the necessary measurements and calculations to evaluate the components of a mixture that have been separated by liquid chromatography.

Evaporation and Intermolecular Attractions

Experiment #9 from Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Study temperature changes caused by the evaporation of several liquids.
  • Relate the temperature changes to the strength of intermolecular forces of attraction.

Evaporation and Intermolecular Attractions

Experiment #8 from Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry

In the Preliminary Activity, you will gain experience using a Temperature Probe while you determine the temperature change as ethanol, C2H5OH, evaporates.

After completing the Preliminary Activity, you will first use reference sources to find out more about alkanes and alcohols before you choose and investigate a researchable question dealing with temperature changes as alkanes and alcohols evaporate.
