Stereoisomer

Chem Writeup. Small glitch. SOS

Hey guys!!

OK this is SO STUPID... but we had a practical in class and I recorded data etc etc

and i found this:

Mass of beaker used: 9.6190g

Do you think a beaker can be 9.6190g? Or did I place the decimal place in the wrong place? I am pretty sure the numerals are correct. Im just a little skeptical.

Thanks :study:

Can you not just re-weigh it? :study:

Or see how realistic it looks when you take it away from your results. It does seem a little light, but tbh I have no idea whether it's possible or not!

Probably a bit late but just for similar situations in the future: you should probably just have asked around with people in your class to see what their beaker weights were and compared/edited your own to match it :no: that's what usually happens when there's a lab going on in my school: suddenly everyone is asking about the weight of this or whether your trend was like that :P
