The Evaporation of Liquids When a liquid is left in a warm car over a certain period of time some people might notice that the liquid seems to have lessened. This is because of evaporation, evaporation is when a liquid changes into a gas because of an increase in temperature or pressure. This brings up many questions having to do with liquids and evaporation so, do all liquids take the same amount of time to evaporate? Why do different liquids have different qualities? Most liquids have different densities which causes them to have different reactions to situations. Liquids is one of the three main states of matter, and it has definite volume but no definite

    Water is colorless, odorless, and some might even say tasteless, but we would not even exist without it. Water is a transparent liquid and covers more than 71 percent of Earth’s surface. Water has been used and recycled throughout the course of history. Water has many properties and we rely on it for our survival. Since water is one of the basic needs of life, you would be surprised how much controversy comes with it.…

    Task-5 a) • Metals Metal structure is made up of crystals of metals which are made up of positive metal ions and these ions are surrounded by a sea of delocalized electrons. To separate these substances from this crystal lattice a lot of energy is needed. In between the positive and negative ions is present a strong electrostatic force of attraction. That is the reason why metals have strong melting and boiling points. In order to slide one layer of the metal ions over the other layer very less amount of energy is used.…

    Question: Which salt type can melt ice at a quicker rate, Magnesium Chloride (MgCl₂) or Sodium Chloride (NaCl)? Background: The different states of matter are solids, liquids, and gases. Solids have a definite shape and volume, and have very little energy because the molecules in a solid are in a fixed position. Liquids have a definite volume, and have the second most/least amount of energy between the three states because its molecules move freely but closely together.…

    Salts and molecules have different properties because salts are ionic compounds and molecules are covalent compounds. Justification: Salt is an ionic compound. An ionic compound is formed by ionic bonding between ions of opposite charge. Sodium Chloride and Potassium Bromide are both salts that have an ionic compound.…

    The temperature that the solid compound begins to melt is known as the point of condensation and the point that the solid has completely liquefied is known as the melting point/temperature. Solubility is simply the ability of a solid compound to completely diffuse/dissociate in an aqueous solution. For example, when you add sugar to a glass of water and the sugar diffuses throughout the water, the sugar is said to be soluble in water. On the contrary, when you add oil to water and the oil settles on top of the water, the oil is said to be insoluble, or not soluble in…

    Does the type of liquid affect how fast an ice cube melts? Does the type of liquid affect how fast an ice cube melts? In an experiment (not ours) involving three liquids, pop melted the ice within it the fastest out of the three. Molecules cause ice to melt in a pretty simple way. When salt is thrown on snow or ice, it prevents the ice or snow from freezing over once again.…

    This experiment will allow us to determine the molar mass of the unknown solute through calculating the difference in freezing point of the pure solvent and the solution with the unknown solute. This lab will show case one of the colligative properties of a solution. This property is dependent upon the number of solute molecules or ions and not the identity or chemical property of the solute. A common example is water which both freezes and melts at 0…

    Summary of Lavoisier’s Memoir on Combustion in General Antoine Laurent Lavoisier was an 18th century French chemist who worked as a member of the the French Academy of Sciences. In the excerpts of Lavoisier’s Memoir on Combustion in General, he introduces to the other members of the Academy his idea of oxygen and its role in how combustion and calcination occurs. He also explains why the original theory of phlogiston, proposed by Georg Ernst Stahl, is not adequate to explain the two phenomenas. Lavoisier first explained his theory by briefly stating laws concerning combustion as well as calcination of metals. He says that these laws are included in Stahl’s phlogiston theory but Lavoisier points out some aspects of it that don’t offer adequate…

    My data supported my hypothesis because cooking wine evaporated the most. The three liquids and the amount of sunlight are the most important variables. The results of this project concluded that the cooking wine evaporated the fastest. The cooking wines average was 41, while apple juice was 28, and the sprite was 29.3, which proves our hypothesis correct. Cooking wine evaporated the most.…

    The melting point of a substance is best described as the temperature at which a solid becomes a liquid (Bruice 2014). On the molecular level, when a compound melts the forces between the molecules become weaker. This is because when a substances heats up the kinetic energy between the molecules increase causing the molecules to vibrate. When the vibrations become strong enough for the molecules to move around and pass other molecules, the compound that is being heated up starts to melt and become a liquid.…

    The purpose of this lab is to understand the effect that dissolved impurities will have on the freezing point of a mixture and what additive will affect the the freezing point the most. The freezing point of a liquid is, the point of a substance when the temperature of the solid and the liquid is equal. When water freezes the water molecules become organized and come closer together forming crystal particles of ice. When a solute (like salt) and a solvent (like water) mix together the salt becomes an impurity and makes it so the solution can’t crystallize.…
