**What is Analytical Chemistry**

Using chemistry principle on analyzing something “unknown”…. Qualitative Analysis: the process of identifying what is in a sample Quantitative Analysis: the process of measuring how much of the substance is in a sample.

3
**Here is the SAMPLE … DO NOTHING ON THE RECEIVED SAMPLE !!!!!!!!!!**

LOOK AT THE SAMPLE Report all your observations on the log book before doing any non-destructive or destructive analysis

Reading a Burette 1 The diagram shows a portion of a burette. What is the meniscus reading in milliliters? A B C D reference:

Reading a Burette 2 How about this is? 41.00 41.10 41.16 41.20

6
Reading a Burette A 50 mL burette can be read to ± 0.01 ml, and the last digit is estimate by visual inspection. However, in order to be able to interpolate to the last digit, the perpendicular line of sight must be followed with meticulous care. Note in these two photographs, one in which the line of sight is slightly upward and the other in which it is downward, that an interpolation is difficult because the calibration lines don't appear to be parallel. upward downward perpendicular

I: Significant Figures Significant Figures is the minimum number of digits needed to write a given value in scientific notation without the loss of accuracy. To be simple, sig. figs = meaningful digits 9.25 x sig. figs. 9.250 x sig. figs x sig. figs

8
**Significant Figures in Arithmetic**

Addition and Subtraction If the numbers to be added or subtracted have equal numbers of digits, the answer goes to the same decimal place as in any of the individual numbers. e.g.

9
**Significant Figures in Arithmetic**

Multiplication and Division In multiplication and division, we are normally limited to the number of digits contained in the number with the fewest significant figures. e.g.

**Significant Figures in Arithmetic**

Logarithms and Antilogarithms log y = x, means y = 10x A logarithm is composed of a characteristic and a mantissa log 339 = characteristic mantissa # of digits in the mantissa = # of sig. fig in the original number log 1,237 =

11
Types of Error Every measurement has some uncertainty, which is called Experimental Error Experimental Error can be classified as Systematic, Random; and Gross Error

12
**Experimental Error Systematic Error**

Consistent tendency of device to read higher or lower than true value e.g. uncalibrated buret Random Error “noise” Unpredicted Higher and lower than true value Gross Error Due to mistake

13
**Precision and Accuracy**

Precision is a measure of the reproducibility or a result Accuracy refers to how close a measured value is to the “true “ value

14
**Absolute and Relative Uncertainty**

15
**Propagation of Uncertainty**

When we used measured values in a calculation, we have to consider the rules for translating the uncertainty in the initial value into an uncertainty in the calculated value. A simple example of this is the subtraction for two buret readings to obtain a volume delivered

16
**Addition and Subtraction**

e1, e2, and e3 is the uncertainty of the measurements, respectively. e4 is the total uncertainty after addition/subtraction manipulation Although there is only one significant figure in the uncertainty, we wrote it initially as 0.041, with the first insignificant figure subscripted. Therefore, percentage of uncertainty = 0.041/3.06 x 100% = 1.3% = 1.3% 3.06 (+/- 0.04) (absolute uncertainty), or 3.06 (+/- 1%)

**Statistics Gaussian Distribution**

The most probable values occur in the center of the graph, and as you go to either side, the probability falls off

20
**Gaussian Distribution**

21
**Gaussian Distribution**

For Gaussian curve representing an “infinity” number of data set, we have (mu) = true mean (sigma) = true standard deviation For an ideal Gaussian distribution, about 2/3 of the measurements (68.3%) lie within one standard deviation on either side of the mean.

22
**Student’s t - Confidence Intervals**

From a limited number of measurements, it is impossible to find the true mean, , or the true standard deviation, . What we can determine are x and s, the sample mean and the sample standard deviation. The confidence intervals is a range of values within which there is a specified probability of find the true mean

23
**Student’s t - Confidence Intervals**

t can be obtained from “Values of Student's t table” see textbook, pp.78

Finding “the best straight line” through a set of data points Equation of a straight line: y = mx + b m = slope; b = y-intercept

Calibration Curve Calibration Curve is a graph showing how the experimentally measured property (e.g. absorbance) depends on the known concentrations of the standards A solution containing a known quantity of analyte is called a standard solution
