Purpose: - To prepare a standard solution of know concentration of copper(II)nitrate trihydrate. To prepare various dilutions of the standard solution. To measure the % transmittance or absorbance of the solutions using the spectrophotometer and to construct a calibration graph from the data. To obtain the concentration of an unknown solution using the calibration graph.
Method: - 1. Obtained 5 test tubes (18mm x 150mm) and labeled them from A to E.
2. In test tube A, placed about 10ml of your stock 0.500ml Copper(II) Nitrate Trihydrate solution.
3. A diluted solution was prepared by placing 8.0ml of the stock in a 25ml graduated cylinder and added distilled water until the solution was up to the 20.0ml mark
4. Step 3 was repeated using 10.0ml of solution B and 100 ml of distilled of water. This diluted was transferred to test tube C.
5. Step 3 was repeated using 10.0ml of solution C and 100 ml of distilled of water. This diluted was transferred to test tube D.
6. Step 3 was repeated using 10.0ml of solution D and 100 ml of distilled of water. This diluted was transferred to test tube E.
7. The concentration of the diluted solution B to E was calculated.
8. Solution A to E was transferred into five curvettes or five 13mm x 100 mm test tubes.

The discipline of archaeology is by no means a simple nor singular stu The discipline of archaeology is by no means a simple nor singular study of the past. Due to the wide range of evidence within the archaeological record, from organic to inorganic, many different methods and approaches are taken in order to deal with the wide spectrum of differing evidence. Nevertheless, the study of pottery is without doubt one of the most important tasks taken on by any archaeologist. A great wealth of information can be gained from the study of pottery, despite its inanimate
Werner Heisenberg and the Heisenberg Uncertainty PrincipleWerner Heisenberg and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Werner Heisenberg, born in the dawn of the twentieth century became one of its greatest physicists; he is also among its most controversial. While still in his early twenties, he was among the handful of bright, young men who created quantum mechanics, the basic physics of the atom, and he became a leader of nuclear physics and elementary particle research. He is best known for his uncertainty principle, a component of the so-called Cope
RUBIDIUM RUBIDIUM The 37th Element Rubidium is located between potassium and cesium in the first Group on the Periodic Table. It’s atomic number is 37and its atomic mass is 85.4678. In French and German it is rubidium, in Italian and Spanish it is rubidio. History and General Facts Rubidium was discovered spectroscopically in1861 by Robert Bunsen and Gustav Kirchhoff in Germany. They experimented with spectral lines of light, now called spectroscopy. They noticed that, when heated or burned, different e

Kirchhoff made findings in the area of Astronomy, Spectroscopy, and Circuitry. He taught for many years at different Universities, and published several books about Mathematical Physics. He also discovered two elements with the help of a chemist named Bunsen. Kirchoff made many contributions have been in the field of circuitry. It was Kirchhoff that discovered the formulas to ca
Chemistry Chemistry 3) Rutherford's gold foil experiment consisted of a radioactive source that emits positively charged Alpha particles to a piece of gold foil. This was surrounded by a circular fluorescent screen which would detect where the Alpha particles were after they hit the gold foil. It found that most of the particles went through unchanged, some went partially deflected and less were greatly deflected. This proved that there is a positively charged nucleus. 4) Flame tests and emission spectro
Organic Chemistry branch of chemistry in which carbon compounds and th Organic Chemistry branch of chemistry in which carbon compounds and their reactions are studied. A wide variety of classes of substances—such as drugs, vitamins, plastics, natural and synthetic fibers, as well as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats—consist of organic molecules. Organic chemists determine the structures of organic molecules, study their various reactions, and develop procedures for the synthesis of organic compounds. Organic chemistry has had a profound effect on life in the 20th
The Synthesis and Characterization of FerroceneThe Synthesis and Characterization of Ferrocene Since ferrocene is credited with the rapid acceleration of modern organotransition metal chemistry (1,2) and the cyclopentadienyl group is extensively used as a stabilizing ligand, it is only fitting that the synthesis of ferrocene be incorporated into an advanced undergraduate inorganic laboratory. In our four credit course, the students work in pairs and have the opportunity to select six experiments from a total of nine. Three of these experimen
How Is Helium ProducedHow Is Helium Produced? Production: Although Helium is one of the most common elements in the universe it is a rare gas on earth. It exists in the atmosphere in such small quantities (less than five parts per million) that recovering it from the air is uneconomical. Helium is produced as a by-product of the refining of natural gas, which is carried out on a commercial scale in the USA and Poland. In these areas natural gas contains a relatively high concentration of Helium which has accumulate
Analytical ChemistryAnalytical Chemistry Analytical Chemistry is the branch of chemistry principally concerned with determining the chemical composition of materials, which may be solids, liquids, gases, pure elements, compounds, or complex mixtures. In addition, chemical analysis can characterize materials but determining their molecular structures and measuring such physical properties as pH, color, and solubility. Wet analysis involves the studying of substances that have been submerged in a solution and microan
The Study of Akali Metal Contamination in Road Side SoilThe Study of Akali Metal Contamination in Road Side Soil IL 3; Experiment 1 October 31, 1996 Abstract Six soil samples were taken from a roadside that was expected to exhibit characteristic of road salt contamination. This contamination is characterized by the presence of magnesium, calcium and sodium. The relationship between akali metal concentration and distance from the pavement was examined and determined to be nonexistent. Additionally, atomic absorbtion and atomic emission spectroscopy we
The AtomThe Atom AP Physics Period 2 In the spring of 1897 J.J. Thomson demonstrated that the beam of glowing matter in a cathode-ray tube was not made of light waves, as the almost unanimous opinion of German physicists held. Rather, cathode rays were negatively charged particles boiling off the negative cathode and attracted to the positive anode. These particles could be deflected by an electric field and bent into curved paths by a magnetic field. They were much lighter than hydrogen atoms and wer
CometsComets The first written records of comets date back to nearly 3,000 years ago from China and Europe. The accounts of these comets were believed to be the causes of terrible events that occurred afterwards. In more recent times, however, astronomers have found out what they really are. A comet is basically a mixture of ices, from both water and frozen gases, and dust. They have also been given the names “dirty snowballs” or “icy mud balls.” The typical comet is less than 10 kilometers across. Th
