Cuvette Concentration Lab Report

Improved Essays
In experiment 1 there were five cuvettes of decreasing concentrations from the initial 0.01 mg/ml concentration of Fast Green solution (cuvette 1). The diluted concentration of cuvettes #2 through #5 were calculated using the dilution formula, C1V1 = C2V2 ; the calculations for the dilute concentrations are in Results section. The concentration for each tube were as follows: 0.015 mg/ml for tube 1, 0.0075 mg/ml for tube 2, 0.00375 mg/ml for tube 3, 0.001875 mg/ml for tube 4, and 0.000935 mg/ml for tube 5. The absorption spectrum was performed for cuvette 1 to determine the maximum absorbance wavelength Figure 1. Cuvette #6, with 5ml of distilled water, acted as a blank to recalibrate the spectrophotometer to 0.000 absorbance between changing wavelengths. …show more content…
As indicated in Table 1, the maximum wavelength was at 625 nm at 1.063 absorbance. The absorbance values from cuvettes #1 through #7 were recorded at 625 nm to create the concentration curve Figure 2. The concentration curve is conducted at the maximum wavelength to produce the optimal results for the diluted concentrations of Fast Green.The purpose of the graph is to locate the unknown; Beer-Lamberts law, the concentration is proportional to the absorbance. The slope of the trend line was y = 71.333x + 0.0014 and the length travelled through the sample was 1 cm, the absorbance at the unknown substance was 0.112. After calculating using Beer-Lamberts law, the unknown concentration was 0.001550474 mg/ml. Calculations are described in the Results section. As shown on the graph, a straight line is drawn from the absorbance value, 0.112, until it intersects with the trend line of the graph. The perpendicular line that corresponds with the abscissa is the concentration 0.001550474

    Using the equations and the numbers on Table 1 found in the data section, the Rf value for the isolated biphenyl was 0.66, the weight was 0.107 g, and recovery percentage was 35.7%. The pH level of the aqueous solvent was then manipulated from a base (sodium benzoate) back into an acid (benzoic acid), by adding HCl. The Rf value for benzoic acid was 0.115, the weight was 0.092 g and the recovery percentage was 30.7%. Using the equation shown in the data section, the total recovery weight came out to be 0.199 and the total recovery percentage was calculated to be…

    Defatted and dried sample (2.0 g) was ground separately and refluxed with 20.0 ml of 80% ethyl alcohol for 6.0 h. The extracts was filtered and made up to 25 ml. The samples (0.2 and 0.4 ml) and standard glucose (0.2-1.0 ml from 0.1mg/ml D-glucose stock) were taken in a series of test tubes and the volume was made up to 1.0 ml. A reagent blank was prepared by taking 1.0 ml water alone. Anthrone reagent (0.5g anthrone and 10g thiourea, in 1L 66% H2SO4) was added to all test tubes to a final volume of 5.0 ml and heated in a 90°C water bath for 15 min. The blue color developed was read at 620 nm in a UV-Vis spectrophotometer against the reagent blank.…

    Pectin yield was determined as weight of dry pectin against the weight of initial residues multiplied by 100%. Y=100(P/Bi) Where Y is the extracted pectin yield (%), P is the amount of extracted pectin in grams and Bi is the initial amount of sweet potato residues used to extract pectin. Equivalent weight and Degree of methoxylation The equivalent weight was determined according to the method by Barretina et al., (Barretina et al. 2012). 0.25g pectin was wetted with 5ml ethanol and topped to 100mL mark in a with deionized water, thereafter six drops of phenolphthalein was added and the content stirred on a plate stirrer with magnet to fully solubilize pectin..…

    The average of volume of NaOH used in the calculations was calculated as the average of the two best values which increases accuracy. The final pH of the titration can be altered if excess indicator is a added. Experiment 2: To prepare the solution of KIO3, the mass that must be added in 250 mL of distilled water must be calculated as shown; 1 mol of KIO3 is contain in 214.00g 0.005 mol of KIO3 1.07g Since the potassium iodate is only 99% pure 99% 1.07g 100% 1.081g Hence, mass of KIO3 used= 1.081g Apart from KIO3 and KI, sulfuric acid is also present in the conical flask, in excess, to provide H+ ions to increase the rate of reaction. 2.3 Conclusion After having done both experiment in the laboratory, we can conclude that he titration method relying on visual detection of the end point for quite precise determination of the unknown…
