Homework Help: Organic Chemistry

Posted by Zach on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 6:30pm.

Why is the melting point of a known compound (ex. acetanilide) determined before the melting point of the unknown compound?
I think it is to determine if the unknown is a pure substance but I am not sure..I just need to be pointed in the right direction.
