Determination of Absolute Zero

All numerical answers should be given to the correct number of significant digits. (Submit your answers on separate sheets as necessary.)

1. What is Gay-Lussac’s Law?

2. What is the temperature of the alcohol/dry ice slurry? What precaution(s) should be taken in working with the slurry?

3. What is the boiling point of liquid nitrogen? What precaution(s) should be taken in working with liquid nitrogen?

4. Why must the gas container be submerged slowly when you place it in liquid nitrogen?

5. What is the definition of temperature as it pertains to the motion of gas particles?

6. The equation of a line is given by the function y = mx + b. Determine the value of the x-intercept (where y = 0) of the line defined by the equation y = 3x + 9. Using the equation for a straight line, what is the formula for the x intercept?

7. What effect will a 1.0°C error (all temperature readings are 1.0°C greater than the actual value) in determining absolute 0 K? Justify your answer.

8. What effect will a 0.10 atm error (reading is 0.10 atm. greater than the actual value) greater than the actual value) have in determining absolute 0 K? Justify your answer.

How to produce data using the simulation:

Three runs will be conducted. Threelinear lines will be produced on one graph.

1) Set the temperature for boiling water. Record the temperature (ºC) and the pressure (atm) in the chart for run A.

2) Set the temperature for the atmospheric temperature. Record the temperature (ºC) and the pressure (atm) in the chart for run A.

3) Set the temperature for solid ice. Record the temperature (ºC) and the pressure (atm) in the chart for run A.

4) Set the temperature for slurry mixture of dry ice and ethanol (See lab manual). Record the temperature (ºC) and the pressure (atm) in the chart for run A.

5)Set the temperature for liquid nitrogen (See lab manual). Record the temperature (ºC) and the pressure (atm) in the chart for run A.

Increase the amount of molecules in the container.

6) Repeat 1-5 for Run #2.

Increase the amount of molecules in the containeronce more.

7) Repeat 1-5 for Run #3.

CALCULATIONS

Show all calculations for full credit. Answers should be given to the correct number of significant

digits.

1.Using MS Excel , plot the graph of Pressure (on the vertical axis) vs. Temperature on

the horizontal axis for the set of points and find the curve of best fit and determine the equation of the curve of best fit.

2.Use the curve of best fit to determine the experimental value of the absolute zero of temperature.

3.Calculate and determine the absolute zero temperature in (ºC).

4. Calculate the percent difference between each of the threeexperimental values and the theoretical value of absolute value.

Post Lab Questions:

1. Are your graphs linear? If so, why? If not why?

1. Give reasons why your values of absolute zero do not agree with the theoretical value.

2. How did the increase in mass affect the absolute value? (refer to Procedure 8)

3. Describe the results of the balloon and liquid nitrogen. Give reasons for these results.

4. Where during your experimental set up do you expect to find sources of error?
