Homework Help: chem

Posted by Jason on Sunday, November 2, 2008 at 9:21pm.

why do we add boiling chips or boiling stones before the distillation starts? Boiling chips should never be added to a hot solution!Why?

i don't know what the answer is to the first one, but as for the second i think i have a clue. is it that the boiling chips will start a violent boiling action that can hurt the person conducting the experiment?
