Experiment 1: Melting Point Determination/Calibration of Thermometer

Wonderful students,

The posts for each experiment will mostly be a gathering ground for resources on each topic, although this could also include important points I want you to remember from the lab lecture.

This experiment deals with measuring melting points using the MelTemp and calibrating your thermometer. The first two resources explain some of the concepts from the lab which will be useful in your discussion. The third resource will be helpful when making your calibration graph.
