Purpose: Find crystallization temperatures for 7 concentrations of KNO3 and make a solubility graph

Materials: KNO3, test tube, stir rod, weigh boats, hot plates, thermometer, 10 mL graduated cylinder.

Procedure:

-In two test tubes, put exactly 5 mL water in each

-Put assigned amount KNO3 in each

-Heat in hot water bath until dissolved- you may stir with sitr rod

-Find crystallization temperature as test tube cools -use a cold water bath for lower concentrations

Does it have to be cm h2o or grams
