Late/Makeup Work:

There is no make-up for missing a scheduled quiz on each Monday or Wednesday (11:00-11:20) (or immediately at the end of class/labs  1:20-1:50 if late.) No late submissions.

Each "Wet" Lab is worth 15 points. All students are allowed one lab absence, but students attending all will earn up to 15 extra points. (11 wet labs). There is no makeup for a missed lab.


CHM 1025C Lab Directions

Project #2: Measurement via Gasoline Project

Assignment & Data Collection/Presentation:
In Chemistry we collect data in the laboratory while performing an experiment. Our second project concerns measurement and data collection in the field (CHM 1025C has lab component, BUT THIS WILL BE DONE OUTSIDE FORMAL LAB TIME.). As an experiment you can do from the 1st week to the last, we can find out what your energy consumption and cost are for driving a car. So here is the project which we will start ASAP and finish the last week of the term.

  During the first weeks of class you need to fill your gasoline tank in your car*. During the course you will keep a
record of all purchases of gasoline noting dates, price, amount, cost and odometer reading. Get receipts and/or keep a diary in your vehicle. Then transfer each purchase to a data page or in a spreadsheet. Collecting the data is worth (20 points) and presenting the data collected is worth (10 Points) AND DOING THE PROJECTIONS IS WORTH ANOTHER 10 POINTSThis lab is worth 40 points (and two 20 point labs).. 

During the last weeks, you fill your tank again and record the data*.

 The chemical reaction for combusting gasoline is:


2 C8H18 (l) + 25 O2 (g) ŕ 16 CO2 (g)  +  18 H2O (g)
(Burn 1 gallon put 18.7 Lbs CO2 in the environment!)


In Chapter 6 we will prove the 18.7 lb/gallon statement when we study chemical reactions and mass stoichiometry

*You need to only fill the tank twice, at the beginning and at the end of the project. You will not use the first fill-up in your calculations, except odometer reading. Why?

Calculations/Projections/Research Conclusions (5 points):

What is your annual mileage?

(Annual Mileage = your daily average miles driven calculated above multiplied by 365 days)

What is your projected annual need for gasoline?:

(Annual Gasoline Demand: Your average Gallons Used multiplied by 365 days)

What will be annual cost at $2.00 per gallon; $2.50 per gallon, $3.00 per gallon; $3.50 per gallon; $4.00 per gallon; $4.50 per gallon; and $5.00 per gallon?

(Annual Cost @ $2.00/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $2.00/gallon)

(Annual Cost @ $2.50/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $2.50/gallon)

(Annual Cost @ $3.00/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $3.00/gallon)

(Annual Cost @ $3.50/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $3.50/gallon)

(Annual Cost @ $4.00/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $4.00/gallon)

(Annual Cost @ $4.50/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $4.50/gallon)

(Annual Cost @ $5.00/gallon = Yearly Gasoline Demand(gallons) multiplied by $5.00/gallon)

Total Pounds of Carbon Dioxide released into the atmosphere by you every year?

(Total Annual CO2 Released = Total Annual Gallons Used multiplied by 18.7 pounds/gallon)

If everyone is like you, calculate Total Gallons Used by 225,000,000 U.S. Cars per year!


The instructor may add additional data for you to determine to complete this project.
