Melting Points (ChemPages Lab)

Melting Points: this is a resource in the collection "ChemPages Laboratory Resources". The melting point is a characteristic property of a substance. It can be used for sample identification and purity determination. The melting point is observed by slowly heating a sample and observing the temperature when the sample has changed from a solid to a liquid. The ChemPages Laboratory Resources are a set of web pages that include text, images, video, and self check questions. The topics included are those that are commonly encountered in the first-year chemistry laboratory. They have been put together for use as both a pre-laboratory preparation tool and an in-laboratory reference source.
