The molecular constitution hypothesis--that a molecule is a suite of atoms associated via a community of bonds-- presents the central technique of ordering and classifying observations in chemistry. even if this speculation isn't really comparable on to the physics which governs the motions of atomic nuclei and electrons.

If you find the graph and equation using software, print out the graph and include it with this report. In any case, report your result below: Equation for P vs t __________________________________ Find the temperature to in °C where P becomes zero. to = __________ °C Let A = − to, and T = t + A On the Kelvin scale, T = 0 at absolute zero, to °C. In your equation, substitute T − A for t, and show that, with your value of A, the equation reduces to P = mT.

Pour three successive 2- or 3-mL portions of the AgNO3 solution into the buret and tip it back and forth to rinse the inside walls. Allow the AgNO3 solution to drain out the buret tip completely each time. Fill the buret with the AgNO3 solution. Open the buret stopcock momentarily to flush any air bubbles out of the tip of the buret. Be sure your stopcock fits snugly and that the buret does not leak. 02 mL. You may find it useful when making readings to put a white card marked with a thick black stripe behind the meniscus.
Of grams Cl − × 100 no. of grams unknown *See Experiment 26 for a discussion of the principles governing precipitations of this sort. (5) 42 Experiment 7 Analysis of an Unknown Chloride Experimental Procedure Obtain from the stockroom a buret and a vial containing a sample of an unknown solid chloride. 2 grams. 2 g of chloride sample. Again weigh the sample vial accurately to obtain the exact amount of chloride sample poured into the flask. Put two other samples of similar mass into clean, dry, small beakers, weighing the vial accurately after the size of each sample has been decided upon.
