Laboratory Techniques And Measurements

A. Water boils at 100°C at sea level. If the water in this experiment did not boil at 100°C, what could be the reason?

The reason why water did not boil at 100°C could be because we are not at sea level; the pressure could be lower.

B. While heating two different samples of water at sea level, one boils at 102°C and one boils at 99.2°C. Calculate the percent error for each sample from the theoretical 100.0°C.

1st sample 1.96% error

2nd sample 0.81% error

C. An unknown, rectangular substance measures 3.6 cm high, 4.21 cm long, and 1.17 cm wide. If the mass is 21.3 g, what is this substance’s density (in grams per milliliter)?

1.20 g/ml

D. A sample of gold (Au) has a mass of 26.15 g. Given that the theoretical density is 19.30 g/mL, what is the volume of the gold sample?

1.355 ml^3

E. What would happen if you dropped the object into the beaker while using the Archimedes’ Principle method instead of submerging the object?

If the object was dropped into the beaker, then the measurements would not be correct.

F. How did the magnet’s density measurement using the Archimedes’ Principle compare to the density measurement using the calculated volume? Which method might be more accurate? Why?

The calculated volume measurement is more accurate because Archimedes’ Principle might have a higher percentage of error.

G. You are given a small piece of gold colored material and want to determine if it is actually gold. Using the Archimedes’ Principle you find that the volume is 0.40 cm3 and the mass is 6.0 g. What conclusions can you reach from your simple density analysis? ...

    Quantum Cryptography

    13060 words - 53 pages

    Quantum cryptography describes the use of quantum mechanical effects (in particular quantum communication and quantum computation) to perform cryptographic tasks or to break cryptographic systems. The use of classical (i.e., non-quantum) cryptography to protect against quantum attackers is also often considered as quantum cryptography (in this case, one also speaks of post-quantum cryptography). Well-known examples of quantum cryptography are the use of quantum communication to securely exchange a key (quantum key distribution) and the (hypothetical) use of quantum computers that would allow

    Although known best for his studies in heredity with the small vinegar fly Drosophila melanogaster (often called fruit fly), Morgan contributed significantly to descriptive and experimental embryology, cytology, and, to a lesser extent, evolutionary theory. In recog-nition of his work in establishing the chromosome theory of heredity (the idea that genes are located in a linear array on chromosomes), Morgan was awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine or physiology for 1933. The son of Charlton Hunt Morgan and the former Ellen Key Howard, Morgan came from two prominent family lines. His father h
