How do you determine boiling point?
It are often calculated as: Kb = RTb2M/ΔHv,
- R is that the universal gas constant.
- Tb is that the boiling temperature of the pure solvent [in K]
- M is that the molar mass of the solvent.
- ΔHv is that the heat of vaporization per mole of the solvent.
What is the instrument used to measure boiling point?
The instrument used to measure boiling point is Thermometer.
Why liquid paraffin is used for boiling point determination?
Paraffin oil is used for determination of boiling point and melting point for the following reasons: It has a very high boiling point and so it can be used to maintain high temperatures in the boiling and melting point apparatus without loss of the substance.
