chemistry

A) A student performed the freezing point depression experiment according to directions but mistakenly recorded the mass of lauric acid as 8.300 g instead of 8.003 g. The calculated molar mass of the unknown acid will be ___________ than the true value, because the mass of lauric acid appears in the denominator of the unknown acid's molecular weight determination


A. less
B. greater

(B) therefore, if it was mistakenly recorded too high, it would ___________ the calculated moles of the solute.


A. increase
B. decrease

  2. the unknown should be less then its true value and the calculated moles would be increased i believe

    The procedure described in this experiment was used to determine the molar mass of unknown liquid (non-electrolyte). The solution was made by mixing 0.961 g of the unknown with 100.0 g of water. The freezing point depression of

    what happens to the calculated molar has if the lauric acid is spilled before determining the freezing point?
  9. Chemistry

    Since the unkown acid is monoprotic, this also equals the number of moles of acid to use. A typical molar mass for an unknown acid in this experiment is 380 g/mol. Using this molar mass, calculate the mass (in grams) of unknown
  10. Chemistry

    We will calculate the amount of acid to use in each titration. Assume that you are using 0.0512 M NaOH(aq). A good volume of NaOH(aq) to use per titration is 15 mL. From this molarity and volume, the moles of NaOH can be
