Experiment 1
Determination of the Components of a “Mixed Drink”

INTRODUCTION. For this experiment standard solutions of Kool-Aid flavors will be prepared to measure the absorbance at lambda max and plot the results against the concentration of solution to generate a standard curve. Then it must be determined the amount of each flavor in a sample of the unknown by comparison to your standard curves. The ingredient in each flavor of the Kool-Aid that was tested is Blue 1 and Red 40. The Lambda max for red 40 is 503nm and for the blue 1 it is 629nm. A UV/Vis spectrophotometer was used to measure the absorbance of the Cherry, Berry Blue, and unknown II.

The purpose of this experiment is to determine the amount of each flavor in the unknown.

Dilution range was made between 2mg/ml-300mg/ml of pectin in deionized water. FeSO4 standard consisting of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1mM in deionized water was used to plot a standard curve, the activity of pectin was determined relative to 1mM of the standard. The stock solutions include 300mM acetate buffer, pH 3.6, 10mM TPTZ (2, 4, 6-tripyridyl-S-triazine) solution in 40 mM HCl and 20 mM Fecl3.6H2O. The working solution was prepared fresh by mixing 25 ml acetate buffer, 2.5 ml TPTZ and 2.5 ml FeCl3.6H2O, and its temperature raised to 37ºC before use. 150µL of pectin solution was mixed with 2850µL of FRAP solution for 30 min in the dark condition.…

From The final method, Grant function, the endpoints were 33.4 mL, 38.4 mL and 44.6 respectively the values can be observed in the 7, 10, and 13. The endpoints for all method were reached at pH range 4.2-4.6. The endpoints found allow determine the equivalent of alkalinity at which the alkalinity concentration for the first, second and third replicate of the sample were calculated. From the table 5 and 6 the average alkalinity of sample resulting for the first trial was 0.002003 mol/L (73.01 mg/l). For the second trial the result is 0.001936 moles/L (63.52 mg/L) and for the third method the value resulting was 0.001958047 moles/L (71.39 mg/L) respectively.…

The four methods used for quantification of alkalinity (4) are summarized below: •Use of a pH indicator: a change in the color from pure yellow to orange is observed and recorded when a known pH is reached. In this his experiment we used methyl orange as indicator The consumed volume until specific pH allow us to know how much volume is required to reach the endpoint. •Visual identification from titration curve; the data are recorded after that small volume are added from buret until endpoint. Then graph pH vs volume added lets us know the volume consumed of titrant and then the alkalinity can be calculate. •Numerical differentiation of the titration data that method is performed by plotting ∆E/∆V vs the volume of acid added.…

Those values were 3.6 for area, 25.3 for volume, and 10.8 for density. After that the percent uncertainty was calculated by using the formula 100(uncertainty)/(original value). The values for area, volume, and density are 1.53, 4.23, and 4.09. The expected percentage was then calculated by adding up the percentages from the dimensions used in calculating the quantity. For area the expected was 1.52, the volume 4.23, and for density 4.29.…

The main objective of this lab was to collect 〖Co〗_2 gases that were given off by the Alka-Seltzer tablets and to identify experimental masses. The volume of gas was 724 liters, or 723.86 cm and the experimental mass was .0894 grams. A balance scale was used before and after the reaction to record the change in overall mass. First, using the scale, the flask, balloon, and Alka-Setlzer tablets were measured, 259.4 ±.05 Grams were found. What created the “〖Co〗_2 gases to be trapped” were the crushed Alka-Seltzer tablets that went into the flask that contained water.…

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…

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…

The starting mass of spearmint oil was 2.81 g and the percent recovery for the carvone product was 66.9%. For the first TLC plate the mobile phase was hexane:ethyl acetate (90:10). The analysis was conducted by using an iodine chamber to stain and a UV light to reveal hidden spots. The solvent front moved 4.1 cm. Some spots such as the spearmint oil showed signs of streaking before a full spot…

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.
