First Day (26 May, Tuesday)
  • What did you do today?
Today, we used fractional distillation to separate water from ethanol. We had to "flush" the collected liquids before actually taking the samples.
  • What did you learn today?
Today, we recapped on why fractional distillation is used instead of simple distillation on certain mixtures due to their boiling points being similar. We learnt how calculate the amount of pressure by dividing the amount of Force by the Area.
  • How do you feel about today’s activities?
The project widened my view on fractional distillation being "just another method to separate liquids", and it showed how there are many different ways fractional distillation can be carried out.
