Featured in PASCO’s College Chemistry Instructor Guide
College Instructor edition with 36 experiments covering introductory and general chemistry topics.
Use a stainless steel temperature sensor to help confirm the identity of a sample of alum synthesized in Lab 15a by conducting both qualitative and quantitative analyses.
Students confirm the identity of a sample of alum by conducting both qualitative and quantitative analyses.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Conducting substance identification tests such as a melting point analysis and a flame test.
- Performing a stoichiometric analysis, using a crucible and Bunsen burner, to determine the amount of water in a hydrated compound.
- Conducting qualitative analyses for sulfate and aluminum.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to measure Temperature, pH/ISE/ORP, Absolute Pressure & Voltage in one sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
