The Size of an Atom LAB Introduction: In this particular experiment we are to measure the properties of certain substances using methods that cannot be done with standard measurement tools, such as a ruler, scale, or clock. For instance to find the size of the molecule of oleic acid we shall use an indirect method. If we know the volume of the oleic acid and the area it spreads out to; we should be able to determine the thickness of an oleic acid molecule. Keeping in mind that for this to occur, the chemical properties of this acid as similar to that of oil. This means that once a droplet of the substance is placed on water it will spread out into a monolayer (typically one molecular high). We’ll use indirect methods to find the volume. Essentially we’re going to use volume/area= Thickness. Procedure: Once the tray is filled up with water about 1 cm high, the Lycopodium powder should be added lightly as if it were seasoning for the water. ...

Borneol Lab Report

 Borneol; An Oxidation-Reduction Scheme Nicolas Gibson Lab Time: Tuesday 11:30 am Abstract: In this experiment, the main objective was to synthesize a ketone from borneol via an oxidation reaction and secondly, to produce a secondary alcohol from camphor via a reduction reaction. Therefore, the hypothesis of this lab is that camphor will be produced in the oxidation reaction and isoborneol will be the product of the reduction reaction because of steric hindrance. For the oxidation step, a reflux will be done and then a micros...
