250 mL Flask
Solid Sodium Chloride
Weigh Boat


  • Record of all observations.
  • Calculations for conversions, scientific notation, and significant figures.

Instructions for Virtual Lab: Record all observations.

Go to lab page:

  1. From the stockroom in the Virtual Lab, obtain glassware, solutions/solids, and a scale.
  2. Fill the 250 mL Beaker using the realistic tab with approximately 200 mL of H2O.
  3. Using the 5 mL Pipette and the realistic tab, draw up approximately 5 mL of water.
  4. Using the realistic tab, press the hold to pour button until you have dispensed at least 2 mL of water into the graduated cylinder.
  5. Reading the meniscus, record and report with the correct significant figures the volume of liquid dispensed.
  6. Obtain the scale and a 250 mL Flask.

  1. 23 yd. =___ m
  2. 4 km =____ mi
  3. 78 kg =____ lbs.
  4. 4 g =___ oz.
  5. 5.3 gal =____L

Convert following numbers into or out of scientific notation:

  1. 20,452,384
  2. 3 x 103
  3. 0.03498
  4. 0.00004928
  5. 2.983 x 10 -4

Perform calculations and report answers with correct significant figures. Use scientific notation when needed.

  1. 2.04 + 0.334 =
  2. 20.33 – 0.2 =
  3. 409 x 22.44 =
  4. 3.0/29 =
  5. 29,004 x 2.0 =
  6. (2.6 – 0.67) x 4.0 =
  7. 4.1(3.8 – 0.04)/3.46 =
