In this project, you will prepare a chemistry lab report, modifying and formatting an existing document that has been reviewed by your partner. You will also add data tables relevant to the experiment being described.
Start Word. Download and open the file named Exp19_DSP_Word_Science.docx. Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the filename.
Ensure that formatting marks are displayed. Reply to the comment on page 4, typing I will add the conclusions we mentioned yesterday. (Include the period.)
Place the insertion point at the beginning of the document. Add Leslie Pangle after Name, Dr. Charles Cooper after Lab Partner, and October 18, 2021 after Date.
Adjust the left and right margins to 1″. Insert an unedited footer and insert a page number at the Bottom of the page using Plain Number 2 selection, or another page number entry if that style is unavailable. Close the footer.
Select the entire document and change the font to Times New Roman, with a font size of 12 pt. Center align the title (Analysis of Iron in a Vitamin Pill) and change the font size to 14 pt.
Right align the information above the title of the paper beginning with Name: and ending with Date:. Change the line spacing of those lines to single.
Apply the Subtitle style to all of the headings (Abstract, Introduction, Materials, Procedure, Results, Conclusion, and References). Modify the Subtitle style to apply Italic formatting and a font size of 12 pt.
Select the list of materials on page 2, beginning with Spectrophotometer and ending with Vitamin tablet, and convert it to a bulleted list using the default bullet selection. Format the list in two columns.
Draw a text box just below the list of materials and type Dilution Equation (M1V1 = M2V2). Apply subscript to the numbers in the equation.
Format the text in the text box to Times New Roman 12 pt.. Remove the outline from the text box and change the height to 0.3″ and the width to 2.5″.
Change the text wrapping to Square and apply Align Center alignment to the textbox.
Insert a blank line after the first body paragraph in the Procedure section, ending in rinse them out thoroughly. Insert a table with five columns and six rows at the location of the blank paragraph.
Merge all cells on the first row and type Preparation of Standards Solutions. (Do not include the period.)
Enter the following headings and data, beginning on row 2. Several titles may automatically wrap within cells.
Solution mL Stock Iron Solution Drops of Citrate mL Hydroquinone mL Phenanthroline
1 1 6 1 1.5
2 2 12 1 1.5
3 3 18 1 1.5
4 5 30 1 1.5
Insert a row below the headings on row 2, type Blank as the Solution type, and then complete the rest of the row with the following data:
Blank 0 0 0 1.5
Change the line spacing of row 2 to Single. Change the height of row 2 to 0.4″.
Format the table using the Grid Table 1 Light table style. Deselect the First Column checkbox on the Table Design tab so the first column is not formatted. Center align all cells.
Add a footnote following the mL Stock Iron Solution heading. The footnote should read Stock iron solution provided by instructor. (Do not type the period.)
Move to the table on page 4 and insert a new row above the first row in the table. Type Table 1: Calibration Curve Data Table. Merge all cells in the first row and apply Align Top Center alignment.
Format the table to AutoFit Window and apply the Grid Table 1 Light table style. Deselect the First Column checkbox on the Table Design tab so the first column is not formatted.
Select the four paragraphs that follow the paragraph that begins This table summarizes the results. Convert the selected text to a table with four columns and four rows.
Insert a new column to the right of the last column in the new table. Click in the last cell of the first row and create a formula to average the two trial amounts for the Absorbance of the Iron Tablet Solution. The formula should average all cells to the left. You do not need to assign a number format. Similarly, enter a formula in remaining cells in the last column to average the Mass Fe of Tablet, Mass of Iron in Tablet, and Percent Error.
Insert a new row above the first row in the table containing averages. Type Table 2: Iron Tablet Data, merge all cells in the first row, and apply Align Center alignment.
Center rows 2 through 5 of Table 2. Format the table using Grid Table 1 Light table style.
Using Manage Sources on the References tab, add a new source using the APA style for a journal article:
Author: Atkins, Robert C.
Title: Colorimetric Determination of Iron in Vitamin Supplement Tablets: A
General Chemistry Experiment
Journal Name: Journal of Chemical Education
Insert a page break before References on page 4. Place the insertion point on the blank line after References. Click Bibliography and select Insert Bibliography to insert the source (or select another option if that one is unavailable).
Click after the words Preparation of Standards Solutions in the first row of the table of the same name on page 3. Press SPACEBAR and insert a solid round bullet symbol located in the Symbol font group. The character code is 183. Press SPACEBAR after inserting the symbol and type Analysis of Variables.
Place the insertion point on the blank paragraph under Conclusion on page 4. Type the following paragraph, pressing ENTER after typing the paragraph.
The vitamin tablet was tested twice, and the results were in an acceptable percent error range. Miscalculations in this experiment can be traced to the difficulties in measuring the volume in the graduated cylinder and Erlenmeyer flasks. With experience, technical variations may be overcome. Overall, the vitamin tablet tested did come close to the amounts claimed by the manufacturer.
Insert text from Conclusion.docx.
Check for spelling and grammatical mistakes. Accept any corrections for grammatical mistakes related to placement of commas and leaving a space after a parenthesis.
Select the word analyzed in the second paragraph of the Conclusion section. Use the Thesaurus to replace the selection with a synonym beginning with the letter c.
Open document properties. Add the keywords: Iron, Beer’s Law, Absorbance.
