CH110 Pre-Labrevised Spring 2020
The initial volume in a graduated cylinder was 2.05 mL. A student added 100 drops of an oleic
acid solution to the graduated cylinder and the final volume was 3.03 mL.
(a) What is the volume of one drop from the dropper? Show full calculation, with units and sig
The solution used was 0.50 % (by volume) oleic acid.
(b) What is the volume of oleic acid contained in one drop ? (Remember 0.50% = 0.0050)
Show full calculation, with units and sig figs.
One of the above drops was used to create a film with a surface area of 137 cm2. Assume the
film is a very wide but short cylinder, therefore
volume of this film = (surface area) x (thickness)
Note: The film is created by only the oleic acid in the drop, the remainder of the drop is ethanol,
which dissolves into the water. Also remember that 1 mL = 1 cm3.
(c) Use the volume from 1b and the surface area given to calculate the thickness of the film in
cm. Show full calculation, with units and sig figs.
Describe the procedure for the experiment. This could be in an outline format or a flow chart
format or paragraph format. It should not be copied directly from the manual. (This should be
