Learning lab lessons this week
This week we learned that graphite crucibles are not the same as ceramic crucibles, even though a neighboring department stores them together underneath the muffle furnace :). We learned that graphite is made of carbon, which results in some very sad faces in the lab when we are conducting loss on ignition. Sarah and Emily lost lots of samples, luckily we have plenty of back-up soil.
