Melting Point and Boiling Point

The purpose of this experiment was to observe the purity of a compound by testing its melting or boiling point. When a chemical is at a melting point, the vapor pressure of its solid phase is equal to that of the liquid phase. Impurities like H20 will lower the melting point of a compound. Reagents Tested: Cinnamic Acid Urea Pentane Analysis: Boiling Point of Pentane Pentane boils at about a third of the temperature of boiling water (see Table A […]
