Catcher in the Rye Analysis

Throughout The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield mentally refuses to grow up. He is at an age where he is transitioning into adulthood, but he desires to revert back to being a child. Holden fears change and all of the responsibilities that come along with being an adult. For this reason, Holden becomes particularly fond of the museum because “in that museum, everything stayed right where it was, and nobody'd move” (Salinger, pg. 121). Holden’s anxiety for change may stem

Percentage of Copper in a Penny Lab Answers

Questions:

1. Why didn't the government change pennies to be entirely zinc if that would be cheaper?

Answer: The government uses copper to coat the zinc because zinc is a highly reactive metal.

2. If all of the zinc did not react, how would your final answer be different?

Answer: If not all the zinc reacted, then the final mass of the penny wold be higher, and there would be a higher percent error.


Possible Errors in the Experiment:

If the zinc is not fully exposed, not all of it reacts, thus turning the solution slightly yellow. If not all zinc reacts. the final mass would be higher. This can be solved by cutting the penny directly in half. If you shaved the edge of the penny, this will not fully expose the zinc and it will also make the mass of the copper smaller.

LAB: THE MOLAR VOLUME OF A GAS ANSWERS

Introduction: When magnesium reacts with hydrochloric acid, hydrogen gas is produced. The gas can be collected in a eudiometer where its volume may be determined. Knowing the number of moles of magnesium used, we can calculate the volume of hydrogen produced per mole of magnesium used. The balanced equation for this reaction allows us to determine the molar volume of a gas at standard temperature and pressure.
Purpose: How much volume does one mole of gas occupy at standard temperature and pressure (STP)?
