This laboratory the weighting techniques and the use of stoichiometry to calculate percentages of substances were reviewed. To calculate the percent purity of sample, stoichometry relationships were used. In this lab stoichiometric relationship was use to find the percent of oxygen in potassium chlorate and also the percent purity of a sample provided. By definition, Stoichiometry is the quantitative relationship amongst elements in a compound to reactant ratio during a chemical reaction. Potassium chlorate (KClO₃), like many other oxygen composing compounds, is decomposed well by heat. Essentially there is an endothermic reaction that by the aid of a catalyst and heat will produce potassium chloride and oxygen. This equation looks as follows:
This process can happen without the presence of manganese dioxide (MnO₂), but it will take a very long time. Instead, MnO₂ is used as the catalyst to expedite the heating temperature and does not contribute to the overall oxygen output

Experimental procedure First, obtain two clean and dry 25x200mm Pyrex test tubes and label the test tubes #1 and #2 respectively. Following the labels, add a pinch of MnO₂ to the test tube labeled #1. Heat the test tube gently over the Bunsen burner to drive away any moisture that that the manganese dioxide may contain. Place the test tubes on a wire cause and allow the test tubes to cool until it reaches room temperature. Once the test tube is full cooled to room…...

Volatile Organic Compounds

...National Textile University B.Sc. Textile Engineering Assignment no 1 Environmental Science Title : Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Submitted By: Adeel mazhar 08-NTU-093 Affan Waqar 08-ntu-94 Submitted To: Sir Irfan siyal Date: 27-03-201 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) What are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) that we hear so much about? Simply, they are chemicals which are carbon-based (hence the “organic” in the name, as organic chemistry is the study of carbon containing compounds) and which volatilize – or rather, evaporate or vaporize – at ordinary (atmospheric) temperatures.  This is a very broad set of chemicals! These volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are ubiquitous in the environment.  You can’t see them, but they’re all around us.  They’re not  listed as ingredients on the products you bring home, but they’re often there.   The most common VOC is methane, which comes from wetlands and rice agriculture to …well, “ruminant gases” (or cow farts – which are actually not a trivial consideration:  cows are responsible for 18% of all greenhouse gasses – read more here).  We ourselves contribute to CO2 emissions each time we breathe out.  They’re also in paint, carpets, furnishings, fabrics and cleaning agents. The evaporating chemicals from many products contribute to poor indoor air quality, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency......

Compound Words

...A compound word is made when two words are joined to form a new word. Definition In English, words, particularly adjectives and nouns, are combined into compound structures in a variety of ways. And once they are formed, they sometimes metamorphose over time. A common pattern is that two words — fire fly, say — will be joined by a hyphen for a time — fire-fly — and then be joined into one word — firefly. In this respect, a language like German, in which words are happily and immediately linked one to the other, might seem to have an advantage. There is only one sure way to know how to spell compounds in English: use an authoritative dictionary. There are three forms of compound words: the closed form, in which the words are melded together, such as firefly, secondhand, softball, childlike, crosstown, redhead, keyboard, makeup, notebook; the hyphenated form, such as daughter-in-law, master-at-arms, over-the-counter, six-pack, six-year-old, mass-produced; and the open form, such as post office, real estate, middle class, full moon, half sister, attorney general. How a word modified by an adjective — "a little school," "the yellow butter" — is different from a compound word — " a high school," "thepeanut butter" — is a nice and philosophical question. It clearly has something to do with the degree to which the preceding word changes the essential character of the noun, the degree to which the modifier and the noun are inseparable. If you were diagramming a sentence with a...

...Oxygen Student’s Name Institution Oxygen Oxygen is one of the most vital elements. People cannot exist without it. This element does not only give us life but also kills bacteria in our bodies without affecting the ones that we need. No other medicine is able to do it exactly like oxygen does. For almost five centuries the chemists all over the world have been arguing about who was the one to discover this element. There were three main candidates for this title. The first one was a pharmacist from Sweden Carl Wilhelm Scheele, the second was an English churchman Joseph Priestley, and the third was a French chemist Antoine Lavoisier. Scheele was the first person who noticed that during the heating of such elements as mercuric oxide, carbonate mercury and silver carbonate they give the same gas, which he called “fire air”. The pharmacist described this phenomenon in his book Chemical Observations and Experiments on Air and Fire, which he wrote in 1775 but it wasn’t published until 1777. Nevertheless, in reality, the secret of the “fire air” remained a mystery to him. The reason for this was a popular in those days theory, on which it was assumed that any substance can be burned only if it has a lot of special combustible matter – phlogiston. Karl Scheele was also a proponent of this theory, so he explained that "fire air" has a high affinity (attraction) to the phlogiston and therefore it burns so quickly. This was quite plausible, but it was......

Dissolved Oxygen

...DETERMINATION OF DISSOLVED OXYGEN IN WATER    INTRODUCTION    The dissolved oxygen content is an important index when considering its suitability for town  supply.  A good clean potable water will give dissolved oxygen value close to the theoretical value for  the saturated solution of oxygen in water.  When there is pollution from organic matter and other  trade effluents, the dissolved oxygen is up in various biochemical oxidation processes and its is only  slowly replaced through surface absorption.  Such water will give a low dissolved oxygen content  until oxidation is completed.  Adequate dissolved oxygen is necessary for the life of fish and other  aquatic organisms.    The methods described below for the determination of oxygen in water is based on that  devised by Winkler.  When manganese hydroxide is precipitated in the water sample it is quickly  oxidized to higher hydrated oxides (probably in the four valent state) by the dissolve oxygen.  Iodine,  equivalent to the dissolved oxygen content, is then liberated on acidification in the presence of  iodine, and it may be titrated with standard thio‐sulphate.    INTERFERENCES AND PRE – TREATMENT    Most oxidising and reducing substances e.g dissolved organic substances, nitrite ions,  higher‐valency manganese compounds, active chlorine, sulphide and sulphite ions, iron (II) and irons  interfere.    The influence of the dissolved organic substances can be excluded by conversion of the ......

Aerobic bacteria and aquatic life such as fish must have DO to survive. Aerobic wastewater treatment processes use aerobic and facultative bacteria to break down the organic compounds found in wastewater into more stable products that will not harm the receiving waters. Wastewater treatment facilities such as lagoons or ponds, trickling filters and activated sludge plants depend on these aerobic bacteria to treat sewage. The same type of aerobic wastewater treatment process occurs naturally in streams and ponds if organic matter is present, turning these bodies of water into “aerobic wastewater treatment plants.” If sufficient oxygen is not naturally supplied through wind and turbulence to replace the depleted oxygen, the......

Dissolved Oxygen

...OF DISSOLVED OXYGEN BY WINKLER TITRATION 1. Background Knowledge of the dissolved oxygen (O2) concentration in seawater is often necessary in environmental and marine science. It may be used by physical oceanographers to study water masses in the ocean. It provides the marine biologist with a means of measuring primary production - particularly in laboratory cultures. For the marine chemist, it provides a measure of the redox potential of the water column. The concentration of dissolved oxygen can be readily, and accurately, measured by the method originally developed by Winkler in 1888 (Ber. Deutsch Chem. Gos., 21, 2843). Dissolved oxygen can also be determined with precision using oxygen sensitive electrodes; such electrodes require frequent standardization with waters containing known concentrations of oxygen. They are particularly useful in polluted waters where oxygen concentrations may be quite high. In addition, their sensitivity can be exploited in environments with rapidly-changing oxygen concentrations. However, electrodes are less reliable when oxygen concentrations are very low. For these reasons, the Winkler titration is often employed for accurate determination of oxygen concentrations in aqueous samples. 2. Scope and field of application This procedure describes a method for the determination of dissolved oxygen in aqueous samples, expressed as mL O2 (L water) -1. The method is suitable for the assay of oceanic levels of oxygen in......

Mixtures and Compounds

...Mixtures and Compounds XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX SCI-110 9 May 2011 Mixtures and Compounds Describe the difference between a mixture and a compound. Chemical compounds are in every known object or substance. They are composed of two elements that combine with each other. They can also be more than two elements. Compounds are one of three forms of matter, and the other two are element mixtures. Compounds have a definite composition, as water will always consist of 88.9% oxygen and 11.1% hydrogen. In contrast, the elements that make up a mixture of iron and sulfur are black iron granules and yellow sulfur crystals which are recognizable. By use of a magnet, iron can be removed from the mixture, and sulfur can be dissolved. In addition, iron and sulfur can be mixed together by just stirring them together (Clarified, 2011). Suppose that you have a pure substance. How can you tell whether it is a compound or an element? A pure substance is an element that cannot be broken down by chemical techniques, like heating, cooling, or reactions from chemicals. This type of pure substance has only one atom, like copper, gold or silver. A large chunk of gold will have millions of gold atoms, and no other atom exist in it. Take for example if you were to heat up copper to the point you melted it, the smallest unit of copper, called an atom is still copper, regardless if it is a solid, liquid, or gaseous state. The atom is the smallest subdivision of an element, but...

Place one line under each independent clause and two lines under each dependent clause. (Recall that as independent clause can stand on its own as a complete sentence.) Many argue that the blues and jazz are the first truly American musical forms. With its origins in slave narratives, the blues took root during the 1920’s and 1930’s as African-America composers, musicians and singers performed in the cabarets and clubs of Harlem. Jazz, however, has is origins in New Orleans. Today, we can still appreciate the music of Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, and B.B. King. Rock and roll is also a distinctively American form of music.

...PERCENTAGES: THE MOST USEFUL STATISTICS EVER INVENTED Thomas R. Knapp © 2010 "Eighty percent of success is showing up." - Woody Allen “Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.” - Yogi Berra "Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration." - Thomas Edison Preface You know what a percentage is. 2 out of 4 is 50%. 3 is 25% of 12. Etc. But do you know enough about percentages? Is a percentage the same thing as a fraction or a proportion? Should we take the difference between two percentages or their ratio? If their ratio, which percentage goes in the numerator and which goes in the denominator? Does it matter? What do we mean by something being statistically significant at the 5% level? What is a 95% confidence interval? Those questions, and much more, are what this book is all about. In his fine article regarding nominal and ordinal bivariate statistics, Buchanan (1974) provided several criteria for a good statistic, and concluded: “The percentage is the most useful statistic ever invented…” (p. 629). I agree, and thus my choice for the title of this book. In the ten chapters that follow, I hope to convince you of the defensibility of that claim. The first chapter is on basic concepts (what a percentage is, how it differs from a fraction and a proportion, what sorts of percentage calculations are useful in......

Determining the Percentage of Oxygen in Air

...“Determining the Percentage of Oxygen in Air” lab, the students were to read the background and purpose information on the lab. The experiment was designed to determine the percentage of oxygen in a given air sample. The purpose of this lab, although, was to teach students to be familiar with laboratory procedures and safety. On the day of the lab, Mrs. Robinson spoke to the entire class on how to do the experiment and the materials that we needed. We then proceeded to put on our safety aprons and goggles. My partner, Wyatt, and I gathered the materials of a 100mL graduated cylinder (with a 0.1 accuracy), a pie tin, a small candle, and a lighter. We needed to be incredibly safe with the lighter. The only chemical is water. When we first got our pie tin, I noticed there was some wax already on the bottom meaning that it was already used. We had trouble getting the candle to stick to the pie tin, but we did and we filled the rest of the pie tin with water. When we lit the candle I could smell the fire. The graduated cylinder was placed over the candle and the flame started to die down and I could see smoke in the rest of the cylinder. As the flame died, the water around the candle started to rise. When the flame did eventually die, the water vacuumed up at a faster rate. The same results followed with other trials only with different readings. Although I noticed that if the wick of the candle was wet, it crackled before lighting. This phenomenon occurs because the oxygen......
