during an experiment, if not all of a liquid vaporizes, in a flask with a cap with a pinhole. will the reported molecular weight be too high or low?

i was thinking too high because the liquid weighs more.

  2. we boiled water in a beaker and put a flask with a small amount of an unknown liquid into the flask then covered it with a lid with a pinhole in it, and we placed this flask in the boiling water bath until the liquid evaporated, then we let it cool and condense.

  3. If I understand what you have done correctly, I think you are correct. The liquid will weigh more than the vapor.
