HOW DO I CALCULATE THE PERCENTAGE BY MASS OF ETHANOL IN A MIXTURE OF ETHANOL AND WATER?
- making a chemical analysis of the solution
- using an adequate hydrometer for alcohol-water solutions
Divide the mass of the ethanol by the sum of the mass of the ethanol + that of the water and multiply by 100. Mass ethanol/(Mass ethanol + mass H2O) (x100)
A mixture of ethanol in water is a homogeneous solution.
The water and ethanol mixture is warmer...
Heating a mixture of ethanol and water would produce a mixture of water vapor (steam) and ethanol vapor. Depending on the composition of the mixture, there could be more ethanol vapor than steam in the resulting gas mixture.
Of course, these substances are ethanol and water.
You would use distillation, in which the ethanol and water will boil at different temperatures.
For example the mixture water-ethanol.
The ethanol will be distilled first and the water stays in the flask
No, because ethanol is polar liquid and can not dissolve in hexane
Why do you suppose a mixture of ethanol and water instead of simply water itself is used for saponification?
you add the ethanol to allow the oil to mix with the solution because water and oil do not mix however if you add ethanol to the mixture it will mix with the oil to form a solution.
The mixture water-ethanol is homogeneous.
Why can you use a water-ethanol mixture but not a water-hexane mixture as a recrystallizing solvent?
Hexane is immiscible in water.
Distillation. Ethanol can be easily collected from water using distillation up to 97% purity.
mixture Added: Chemically speaking alcohol is meant to be ethanol, which is a pure compound with formula CH3CH2OH, it definitely is not a mixture, except when 'dissolved' in water (most stable solution: 4% water + 96% ethanol. (This is what you get when buying a bottle pure ethanol)
I dont think so because ethanol, containing an OH group is readily soluble in water.
Substance Added: Chemically speaking alcohol is meant to be ethanol, which is a pure compound with formula CH3CH2OH, it definitely is not a mixture, except when 'dissolved' in water (most stable solution: 4% water + 96% ethanol. (This is what you get when buying a bottle pure ethanol)
The solvent may be water, ethanol or the mixture.
Ethanol and water. Ethanol would evaporate at around 70 deg Celsius, water around 100 Celsius.
It is a pure substance. Added: Chemically speaking alcohol is meant to be ethanol, which is a pure compound with formula CH3CH2OH, it definitely is not a mixture, except when 'dissolved' in water (most stable solution: 4% water + 96% ethanol. (This is what you get when buying a bottle pure ethanol)
Mouthwash is a type of mixture. It is also a homogeneous mixture. It is comprised of water, sometimes ethanol alcohol, and other chemicals.
Whiskey is mainly a mixture of ethanol (40 %) and water.
Will letting water-sugar-yeast mixture ferment for long time affect the quantity of ethanol produced?
Letting a water, sugar, and yeast mixture ferment for a long time does not affect the quantity of ethanol produced.
Yes, ethanol (ethyl alcohol), as being a fluid by itself, is in any ratio miscible with ('soluble in') water. At 96% ethanol the mixture has the lowest boiling point, so destillation of a water-ethanol will never give a higher ethanol content.
distillation and filtration get a strainer to get the sand out and i think you burn the ethanol till it's gone :)
Distillation is based on the difference between boiling points of liquids. Ethanol is separated first. The distillation is possible only to an ethanol concentration of 95,63 % because an azeotropic mixture is formed.
Ethanol is a compound. However, it's a little tricky to get it completely pure, since it forms an azeotrope with water at 95% ethanol/5% water.
Vodka is a mixture of water and ethanol, with several other ingredients in very low concentration.
Because a mixture of ethanol and water in any proportions forms a single phase liquid at standard temperature and pressure. That is the meaning of "miscible".
No. Whiskey is a mixture of water, ethanol, and a number of other substances.
A simple example; separation of ethanol from a water solution.
ethanol and water.
Iodine is soluble in ethanol and the solution is homogeneous.

(This is what you get when buying a bottle pure ethanol) rubbing alcohol is a mixture If you were to take 'alcohol' into a more specific definition an alcohol is really a hydrocarbon with the functional group So if it… Read More
No this is not an ideal solution, because water and alcohol (ethanol) molecules interact rather complex resulting in eg. an azeotropic boiling point at 96% mixture
By fractional distillation. Heat the mixture gently. As the temperature rises both liquids will evaporate and should be cooled and the condensate collected. The temperature will stabilise at around 78 deg C when all the remaining ethanol will evaporate. What you are left with is pure water. The condensate is mainly ethanol with a small quantity of water. It can be distilled again to increase its purity.
Frequently is a mixture of water with denaturated ethanol or isopropyl alcohol.
Simply stated: boiling point, though it's better to say: volatility. Related Information: Not all substances with different boiling points can be separated by simple distillation. An example is a water/ethanol mixture. The ethanol, in a 50/50 mixture of water and ethanol, can be concentrated by progressive distillations to an azeotropic mixture of 4.37% Water (BP = 100oC) and 95.63% Ethanol (BP = 78.4oC). This resulting distillate, has a boiling point of 78.2oC. Further distillation does… Read More
I assume that by "boils faster" you really mean "boils at a lower temperature", and that by "alcohol" you mean "ethanol". Ethanol has a lower boiling temperature than water at standard pressure. However, a mixture of ethanol and water boils lower than either by themselves do. This is called an "azeotrope" and it happens for ethanol/water mixtures at about 95% ethanol, which is why it's essentially impossible to get ethanol to more than 190 proof… Read More
Ethanol is a compound, not a mixture.
because 2-butanone is a mixture so ethanol and water do not but mixtures do.
7% elemental iodine and 93% mixture of ethanol and water.
It's a mixture of compounds (water and ethanol being the two major ones).
Because whisky contain water, ethanol and many other minor organic components.
Alcohol is an organic chemical in its pure form which is a compound. Alcohol as a beverage is called alcohol because it is a mixture of chemicals the main being ethanol (CH3CH2OH) which is an alcohol. Alcohol as a beverage is a solution made up of mostly ethanol and water. Under normal purification products labeled ethanol will always be solutions of ethanol and water because the most concentrated you can achieve using normal distillation techniques… Read More
Povidone Iodine is a mixture of Polyvinylpyrrolidone and Iodine. Tincture of Iodine is a mixture of Elemental Iodine + KI/NaI dissolved in a mixture of ethanol & water
Previous answer: "You can use distillation to separate alcohol and water due to their different boiling points." Not quite. You can partially separate alcohol (ethanol) and water due to their different boiling points. Water and ethanol form what is called an azeotrope, meaning that at a certain concentration of ethanol (somewhere around 94-96% I think, not sure) you can not separate the water and ethanol to any greater extent through distillation. It is still possible… Read More
Fractional distillation is the process of separating two (or more) liquids based upon differences in their boiling points. In liquor, ethanol has a lower boiling point than water, so a mixture of water and ethanol can be heated to allow the alcohol to boil. The vapor goes through a tube, is cooled and collected in a separate container, and a mixture that was mostly water is now mostly ethanol.
After obtaining a mixture of ethanol and pure water from a mixture of ethanol and sea water through distillation which liquid will be collected first and last?
The liquid that boils at a lower temperature will become a gas first and this will be the first one that you collect. Water boils at 100 degrees C and methanol boils at 64.7 degrees C so you will collect methanol first and then water.
Vodka is a mixture. Its primary constituents are ethanol and water, but it also includes various other chemicals in small amounts to give it flavor.
Wine is a mixture because it contains a variety of substances that are not chemically bonded. It consists of ethanol and other organic substances dissolved in water.
