compound x is a volatile liquid . in order to determine the relative molecular mass of X , a student carried out 6 experiments . In each experiment a measured mass of X was injected into an empty 100cm^3 gas syringe maintained at a pressure of 100kPa and a temperature of 373K . in each of the experiments the volume of gas produced was measured .
apart from the loss of liquid during transfer to the gas syringe , identify one other source of error in this experiment . suggest one improvement to minimise this other source of error
- source of error = the temperature may not have constantly remained at 373K
- improvement = the experiment should be done in a water bath where the temperature is constant
