This lecture includes the definition of a melting point 9mp), the way solid samples melt, and how to record a range of melting temperatures. It also explains the theory behind melting points, the ways impurities in a sample can elevate or depress a melting point, and how melting points can help identify materials and their purity. The lecture concludes with tips and tricks for conducting the experiment.
