**Homework 2 due this Wednesday- in class**Homework 3 posted due Wednesday 7 Feb**Fong lab: Answer Pre-lab questions* page 13 of Lab**Manual on separate piece of paper and bring to lab tomorrow morning • * • What is the density of pure water at typical lab temperatures? • Explain finding “mass by difference.” • What is a pycnometer ? • How can the exact volume of the pycnometer be determined ? Lab Notebook must have Purpose and Procedure written out before hand. (Will check at door.)**Corrections/additions to Procedure on page 14**4. Remove the marble , measure the mass of the full pycnometer and record in the table. 9. Remove the marble, measure the mass of the full pycnometer and record in the table. • 14. Measure the mass of the empty pycnometer and record in the table • 15a. Add about half the volume of the unknown solid to the pycnometer • (Erlenmeyer) • 15b. Measure the mass of the unknown solid and pycnometer. • Fill the Erlenmeyer completely with water, then place the marble on • top. A small amount of water should spill out. • Remove the marble, measure the mass of the full pycnometer with theand record in table.**How many 0.6 Mm=___km ?**• 600 km • 6*10-3 km • 6*106 km • 6000 km**5 ps = ____ns ?**• 5*10+3 ns • 5*10-6 ns • 5*10+2 ns • 5*10-3 ns**PRECISION AND ACCURACY : what are they ?**Your thoughts…..**Why do we care about Sig Figs in Chemistry?**The Sig Fig count tells us the precision of measurement How long is the screw ? 5 cm 1 sig fig How long is the screw now? 5.1 cm 2 sig fig Nerdy detail: actually you can add one more sig fig to each since we can- in principle- guess another decimal place between hash marks…(the ruler is `analog’)**Metric, digital micrometer does even better**51.03mm How long is the screw now in cm ? 5.103 cm How many sig figs now ? 4 sig fig Nerdy detail: since the above instrument is digital, not analog- what you see is what you get.
