  • Heterogeneous Mixture Essay

    1681 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction: A mixture is a combination of two or more substances that do not have fixed proportions to one another. The two types of mixtures that exist are heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures. A heterogeneous mixture is a mixture where someone is able to see more than one color or type of matter, This mixture has more than one phase and a non-uniform composition. A homogeneous mixture, however, is a mixture that looks the same throughout the composition, and has one phase and uniform composition

    James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans as a Mixture of Genres James Fenimore Cooper's The last of the Mohicans is often seen as a simple adventure story within the historical frame of the French and Indian war. Only if we analyze the novel in a closer way, we will realize that it goes beyond this label and that its sources are many and varied, giving the work the richness of the genres on which Cooper's novel is based. These are romanticism, western, (being its author one of the forerunners

    be used to separate two component mixtures e.g. of water soluble dyes, an insoluble solid from a liquid and a mixture of two different amino acids. The matter around us can be divided into pure substances and mixtures. Pure substances consist of one type of molecule, whereas mixtures contain different kinds of molecules. Mixtures can be separated into their components using different separation techniques, which depend on the properties of substances in the mixture. We apply this methods in different

  • Investigation into the kinetics of the reaction between peroxodisulphate(VI) ions and iodide ions

    955 Words  | 2 Pages

    the oxidation of iodide ions to iodine molecules which are soluble in water and are visible as a pale brown clear solution. The formation of the iodine can easily be detected because all other species in the reaction mixture are colourless. The addition of starch to the reaction mixture further enhances the colour change by forming a dark blue-black complex with the iodine. The overall ionic equation is: (the spectator ions K+ have been left out to see the electron transfer clearly) S2O82- (aq) +

  • Marble Chips Experiment

    or a mixture of more water than acid, there will be a slower reaction because there are less acid particles. When there are few acid atoms, there is less of a chance that a collision will occur between the acid and marble chips particles. Independent Variable: I will be changing the amount of mixture containing the three molar hydrochloric acid and water. This is to see how much the concentration of acid affects the speed of reaction to the marble chips. I will have 30 ml of mixture and

    oxidizing agent, a fuel (reducing agent), a coloring agent, binders and regulators. These mixed together are what make up the basic fireworks: Oxidizers The first thing in a firework is the oxidizing agent. These produce the Oxygen to burn the mixture. Oxidizers are usually nitrates, chlorates or perchlorates. The common oxidizers are nitrates. These are made up of a metal ion and the nitrate ion. I'll use potassium nitrate as an example. Nitrates only give up 1/3 of their oxygen. The resulting

  • Separation Challenge Lab Report

    involving the use of background knowledge of mixtures, properties of matter, and creativity in order to find a solution to separate three different substances layered on top of each other within a container. The experiment required a matter of coming up with a solid and thought out procedure to successfully separate the three substances individually within an amount of time using various lab materials and technology accessible at the time. Background A mixture, according to definition, is a combination

  • Chromatography Lab Essay

    Experiment 8 A and B were both mixtures that we were able to separate by using physical methods of separation. Evidence: Experiment A: In the first step of this procedure we put 1.5 grams of sulfur, a yellow grainy substance into a test tube and added 5 grams of clear water. We then stoppered the test tube and shook the sulfur and water substance together. Once the sulfur and water was shaken thoroughly, it was clear that the two substances were a heterogeneous mixture. There were still visible bits

  • Distillation

    explain the process of fractional distillation. When a mixture of ethanol and water is heated, it will boil at a temperature between 78.3 C (the boiling point of pure ethanol) and 100 C (the boiling point of pure water). In fractional distillation, the vapor will condense on a surface. The condensate will then evaporate again and then condense on another surface. This process will continue until the percentage of ethanol in the mixture continues to get larger as the percentage of water decreases

    Effects of Temperature on the Rate of Clotting Milk and Rennet Introduction ------------ The following experiment investigates the effects of different temperatures on a mixture of rennet and whole milk. On having the choice between testing the mixtures reactions at various temperatures, or testing the mixture with various amounts of concentration of rennet, my partner and I decided upon the first option. We made this decision as we felt it would be valuable to our scientific knowledge

    Currently, the annual world production of portland cement is around 700 million metric tons (Danbury). Many people use the words concrete and cement interchangeably, but they're not. Concrete is to cement as a cake is to flour. Concrete is a mixture of ingredients that includes cement but contains other ingredients also (Day 6- 7). Portland cement is produced by pulverizing clinker consisting essentially of hydraulic calcium silicates along with some calcium aluminates and calcium aluminoferrites

  • Caffeine Extraction Experiment

    The objective of this experiment was to perform extraction. This is a separation and purification technique, based on different solubility of compounds in immiscible solvent mixtures. Extraction is conducted by shaking the solution with the solvent, until two layers are formed. One layer can then be separated from the other. If the separation does not happen in one try, multiple attempts may be needed. The experiment was conducted in three parts: Part A of the experiment consisted of extracting

  • Sewage Treatment

    Sewage Treatment Where does the wastewater go? When water goes down your sink or toilet, it travels through small pipes to much larger trunk sewers. The sewer systems are built to the slope of the ground around the Elbow and Bow Rivers. This slope allows most of the waste to go down by gravity, rather than expensive pumps, to one of four plants. To handle low areas, which do not have enough slope, pumping stations have been made. How is wastewater treated? Wastewater treatment in Calgary

    to the carberator. The air and gas mixture is then sent to the intake manifold, from there its sent to the intake valve. Combustion The camshaft opens and closes both the intake valve and the exhust valve. When the intake valve opens, the air and gas mixture rush into the cylinder. The valve closes and the mixture is traped inside. The piston is pushed up and causes compression. At just the right moment the spark plug sparks and ignites the mixture. When the gas explodes it pushes the
