Chem&110 Experiment B – Iron and Sulfur Lab Tutorial

In this lab tutorial, we look over the Iron and Sulfur lab, as well as some of the techniques that you will be required to know to complete this lab. We also review some safety and operating techniques for when using the Bunsen burner. Thanks for watching!

In preparing the Iron and Sulfur Sample, you will need to make a total of four measurements:

Begin by weighing the empty test tube and beaker. Record this mass.

By subtracting the mass of the empty test tube/beaker from the mass of the iron/test tube/beaker, the difference will result in the mass of the iron alone. Once you get within the desired range, record this new total mass. This is your new “zero” point.

Now you can add sulfur into the test tube. By subtracting the mass of the iron/test tube/beaker from the mass of the sulfur/iron/test tube/beaker, the difference will result in the mass of the sulfur alone. Record this mass.

Once you fix the balloon onto the test tube, record that mass as well.

Chem& 110 Experiment F – Vitamin C in Beverages Lab Tutorial

In this lab video, we’ll go over the Vitamin C and briefly look at the techniques that you should know for this lab. This lab in particular requires some specific lab knowledge, most importantly reading a buret.

To read a buret, start at the top and read to the bottom of the meniscus. Our lab burets read to the tenths place (0.0), so estimate to the hundredths place (0.00). Refer to the video for an example.

Ptable

A Periodic Table with interactive visualizations, properties, orbitals, isotopes, and compound mixing.  Ptable.com provides more information and interactive tools for more advanced chemistry needs than the minute labs periodic table provides.  Ptable includes a visually informative table including each element’s wikipedia page & related photos/videos, properties, orbitals, isotopes, and compounds. When you are on the first ‘Wikipedia’ tab, you can click on any element and see its wiki page or choose from the tab menu to see a related video or photo. Also, the table allows you to see the elements or properties at different temperatures using the temp slide scale. On the compounds tab, you can name a compound or type a formula and it will highlight the elements involved.

Minute Labs Periodic Table

Learn about the elements of the Periodic Table with an interactive table and videos about each element.  Minute Labs’ Periodic Table site provides a periodic table where you can scroll over the element and it will give you all its data in the lower right hand corner of the screen.  Then, if you click on the element, a video about it will load in the lower left hand corner! Also, you can change the temperature bar at the top of the page and see the temperatures at which each element is a solid, liquid, or gas.  You can see the “Periodic Table of Magnets” by changing the menu at the top left hand side from ‘States’ to ‘Magnets’.  This site is very user friendly and fun.  It could be very useful for Chemistry students, or students studying other sciences that use the periodic table!
