Intermolecular Forces

In this lab, students will use a stainless steel temperature sensor to determine the effects of molecular size and shape on the strength of intermolecular forces for different alcohols within the same homologous series and between isomeric pairs.

Featured Equipment

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
