Featured in PASCO’s College Chemistry Instructor Guide
College Instructor edition with 36 experiments covering introductory and general chemistry topics.
Ethanol & Acetone Interaction
Use an absolute pressure sensor and stainless steel temperature sensor to determine and relate the heat of vaporization of substances to the interactions between molecules.
Students determine and relate the heat of vaporization of substances to the interactions between molecules.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Studying the molecular interaction of ethanol and of acetone by monitoring their vapor pressure as a function of temperature.
- Using pressure and temperature sensors.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to measure Temperature, pH/ISE/ORP, Absolute Pressure & Voltage in one sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
