Experiment (Input Number): (Type full title here.)
Class Title and Section
Instructor: Katherine Walton
In this section you will discuss about the purpose of the experiment. It should only be a few sentences long and should include information pertaining to what it is you are trying to analyze, measure, or accomplish. Also you can include a sentence about how you will be accomplishing this objective. This section will act as a quick overview for the reader similar to how an abstract is used in many scientific journal articles.
In this section you will include information that pertains to the techniques and concepts you used to accomplish the objective discussed above. In the experiment where you determine the equilibrium constant, the introduction should include answers to the following questions:
What is the equilibrium constant and what chemical reactions does it pertain too?
How is this constant able to be determined?
How will you be determining this constant by the experiment? (Explain the logic behind the experiment to accomplish the objective.)
You also should discuss a little about the techniques you used. This would include the spectrophotometer and determining concentration using absorbance and forming the calibration curve.
The introduction CAN NOT be copied material from the manual nor should it be simply answers to these questions. The introduction must be a few paragraphs long and be written so that the reader can understand why you are doing the experiment and background information in the techniques you will use.
This section will include the procedure you used in your own words. If you copy the procedure from the manual you will not receive any points for this section.
Results and Discussion
This section should include the data from the experiment. In the case of Experiment 5, you need to include a table with concentrations and absorbance for each solution and the calculations you used to determine the
