Physical Separation of a Mixture

Date of experiment: Friday September 13, 2013

Name: Luis Gutierrez; September 20, 2013


This lab was the separation of the components of a ternary mixture. The three objectives in this lab were:

1. Learn the different separation techniques which include; sublimation, extraction, decantation, filtration and evaporation.

2. Separate three components in a mixture using the separation techniques learned.

3. Determine the mass percentages of each of the three components present in a mixture.

In order to separate the components of a ternary mixture, one must understand what a mixture is and the different separation techniques that can be used. Mixtures are defined as a physical combination of two or more pure substances. Separation techniques are used to separate components that are not chemically combined. Because only physically combined mixtures are being used in this experiment, the separation techniques described in this experiment are based on physical changes, rather than chemical changes.


1. Sublimation- Involves the heating of a solid that passes directly into a gaseous phase without transitioning into a liquid phase. The reverse process where a gas goes into the solid phase is called deposition or condensation.

2. Evaporation- Involves the heating of a mixture in order to separate a volatile liquid in the form of a vapor, while the residual components remain dry.

3. Extraction- Involves using of a solvent that selectively dissolves only a single component while the other components remain insoluble.

4. Decantation- Involves the separation of a liquid from insoluble solid sediment by carefully…...

Philosophy 121

...Jillian Wheeler-Spence Philosophy 121 Essay 2 10/04/2012 In this paper I am going to be discussing the differences in Hobbes and Locke’s theory of the state of nature. One of the major differences is that Hobbes was a rationalist. His theory of the state of nature is really the starting point for a legal system. What Hobbes talked about was the time before government. He believed that by nature human beings were passionate and reasonable. That by nature we are all capable of taking care of ourselves. To Hobbes there was no such thing as justice. Everyone has the right to defend themselves. In my opinion he believed in the theory of due unto others as you would have done unto you. So for example if you didn’t want someone to steal from you, you shouldn’t steal from them. If someone did threaten you in anyway, then you were able to defend yourself by any means necessary. Hobbes believed that if there were no rules in place at all that everyone would just kill each other. So there needed to be some sort of government to help enforce those rules. He just wasn’t sure how to go about getting that government set up. He thought that a government should in place basically to help us keep our promises to each other. A government wouldn’t really had out punishment but just enforce the rules that we had already set. Those rules I believe were set by each individual. What I might think is the right thing to do, may not be the right thing for......

...Georgia Institute of Technology CHEM 3700 Research Paper The German Energiewende “Die deutsche Energiewende“ Professor: Dr. Thomas Orlando Student: Shyam Rangarajan Abstract With the diminishing reserves of fossil fuels compounded by their negative effects on the environment, clean and renewable sources of energy to meet next generation energy demands undoubtedly need to be found. However an even more critical aspect governing global energy challenges is the way governments around the world take responsible actions and implement energy policies that are conducive to a sustainable future. A recent development in this regard is the German Energiewende, or Energy Transformation, one of the most ambitious projects of its type. The project aims to completely transition the German energy sector to one powered by renewables by the year 2050. Along with the benefits to energy security and controlled carbon emissions that such a policy would bring, the German government‟s efforts have also sparked a wide-scale increase in investment into emerging technologies. This has led to a vast increase in employment in the energy sector, and has also given rise to the concept of „prosumers‟, or individuals who produce and sell their own electricity through privately owned solar installations. Although the long term benefits of this project are enormous and the potential limitless, there are several short term repercussions that are slowing it down. Chief among these is the spiraling...

...moléculas de éste se alejan ca.da vez más. El volumen mismo de las moléculas se convierte en una fracción cada vez más pequefia del volumen total ocupado por el gas. Por otra parte, las fuerzas de atracción entre moléculas se vuelven más pequeñas debido a que la distancia entre ellas es cada vez más grande. En el límite, a medida que la presión tiende a cero, las moléculas están separadas por distancias infinitas. Sus volúmenes se vuelven despreciables comparados con el volumen total del gas y las fuerzas intennolecnlares tienden a cero. En estas condiciones se dice que todos los gases sou ideales, y la escala de temperatura establecida por la ecuación (3.9) se conoce como escala de temperatura del gas ideal. La constante de proporcionalidad R de 121 ecuación (3.7) SC conoce comoconstante universal de los yases.

...Rajdeep Singh Chem 2A Fregrene The Evolution of the Battery and Electric Vehicle After reading various articles on battery chemistry and how it applies to electric vehicles’ I have come to a conclusion. Although electric vehicles may seem like a great idea for many people, because they can eliminate a great amount of emission pollutants in the atmosphere, they arrive with many unresolved issues. Issues which may be expensive as well as incovineient to solve. The first article I read was “Chemstry’s Electric Oppurtunity” by Alex Scott. In his article, he spoke of the automobile firm Tesla and their new Model S vehicle. The Tesla Model S is a vehicle capable of driving up to 300 miles before needing to recharge, compared to the majority of other electric cars who can only reach 100 miles. The CEO of Tesla Motors, Elon R. Musk claims that “anything a gasoline based vehicle can do, the Model S can do” (Scott, pg 1). Which may prove to be true since the car goes from ‘0-60 in only 4.2’ (Scott, pg 1). Many people wonder how the Model S is capable of outperforming other electric vehicles. It is due to the car’s large 670kg battery. This battery provides an energy density of 240 Wh/Kg. ‘This is much denser than the nickel based batteries of other firms such as Toyota, Nissan, and GM’ (Scott, pg 2). It’s great that Tesla is able to raise the bar in the electric vehicle field and provide a more efficient vehicle for consumers to enjoy, however there is a large inhibitor. Batteries...

...CHEM 111G – General Chemistry I Lab 1 Separation of the components of a mixture Aim of the experiment: To develop a stepwise procedure to separate the four components of a mixture of sand, salt, iodine and iron filings and determine the % of each by mass Brief procedure: The stepwise procedure was developed based on unique properties of each component: Salt: soluble in water Sand: insoluble in water Iodine: sublimes to vapor Iron: attracted to magnet We weighed out ~2g of the mixture in a 250mL beaker and chose to separate the iron first using a magnet. Since the iron sticks strongly to the magnet, the beaker + mixture was then reweighed to determine the mass of iron removed by difference. The iodine was then removed in the next step by placing the beaker on a hot plate covered by an ice cold evaporating dish and heating at maximum heat until no more purple iodine vapor were seen coming off. The deposited iodine crystals were recovered from the underside of the dish. Because some iodine is lost the beaker + mixture was then reweighed to determine the mass of iodine removed by difference. The remaining mixture of sand and salt was treated with deionized water to extract the salt (soluble). The sand was removed by filtration through a filter funnel via the water vacuum pump and the filtrate transferred to another weighed beaker. The salt was then recovered by evaporating the filtrate to dryness. The beaker was cooled and the salt mass determined by mass......

...LSP 121 Homework 5: Logs and Richter Scale, Decibels Open the file logs.xls (found on the QRC website under Excel Files). You will use this file for both parts below. Click on the worksheet tabs at the bottom to access the other file. 1. Richter scale The Richter scale is used to measure the intensity of earthquakes. It is a logarithmic relationship with the following formula: R = log(I) I is the intensity of the earthquake and R is the number on the Richter scale. (Remember that if there is no base written with the log it is base 10). Don’t be scared off by logs. Think of them as a short-cut way of writing large numbers. For example, let’s say the intensity of an earthquake is 100,000,000. Can you imagine if the papers published that big number? What would people think? Most people cannot handle well numbers with large amounts of zeros (unless those people work for the government ;-). Instead of writing 100,000,000, let’s just write how many zeros there are. In this case, there are 8 zeros. That’s exactly what log10 is asking. 10 to what power equals 100,000,000? 10 to the 8th power. So the log(100,000,000) equals 8. Thus, the Richter value for an earthquake with intensity 100,000,000 is 8. Let’s say it another way. Let’s remove the log. Converting the above formula from log form to exponent form would give us: 10R = I (Note: 10 was raised to the R power, which cancels the log function.) Which version you use depends on which variable you...
