Anesthesia Lab

Lab Set Up & Conclusions.


In this lab we were trying to figure out the percentages of solute and solvent that were in the solution of Aunt Elda's anesthesia concentration. The reason why we are trying to find this out, you ask? Well... Aunt Elda has died. That is unacceptable and we need to get to the bottom of this!! In order to cut to the chase and discover the real mystery of why Elda died, we had to find how much solvent and solute was in a 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, and 100% solutions. after using the colorimeter to find all of these measurements, we were then able to measure Aunt Elda's mixture to crack the case and see which percentage was an overdose for Aunt Elda.


After testing each and every individual cuvette of solutions, we found out that Aunt Elda's overdose consisted of a solute % of 80% and a solvent % of 30%.

How to make a 40% solution.

In order to create a 40% solution, you will need to have 40% solvent and 60% solute,
