chem 121

posted by .

We did a lab separating out the components of a mixture. One of the lab questions is "The weight of naphthalene was obtained by weighing the collected solid. Was this an accurate weight of the naphthalene present in the original sample?" I don't know how to answer this.

    How did you separate the mixture? If you dissolved the naphthalene in a solvent, then evaporated the solvent, what was the solubility of the product in the solvent?

    We heated the mixture in a beaker & put a glass dish with ice on top
