1 Entering data and doing repetitive calculations with Excel Start by entering preliminary data in columns. Label each column. If you need to do repetitive calculations on your data before you make a graph, you can have Excel do the repetitive work for you. For example, in the blue food coloring and bleach demo, our raw data consisted of times and absorbances. However, the graphs we will be making will be concentration vs. time, the natural log of concentration vs. time, and the inverse of the concentration vs. time. You ll need to get the data into the correct form before making the graphs. You could do each calculation separately on your calculator, or you could enter formulas so that Excel does these calculations. (This is much easier!) Each formula must start with = (the equals sign). Some symbols used in excel: + addition - subtraction * multiplication / division ln() take the natural logarithm of the number in parentheses For scientific notation: to input the number , enter 6.022e23. If you wanted to input something with a negative exponent, such as , enter 1.3e-4. Using exponents: to raise a number to a power, use the ^ key. 4 2 would be entered as 4^2. For example, let s assume you entered the following data: (You should enter your data for experiment 1. It will be different than this.) time (min) Absorbance To have Excel calculate concentrations for you so that you don t have to do it by hand, we ll apply a formula. Since graphs are easiest to make if the x and y data are next to each other with the x values on the left, we ll make another table. 1. Select and copy the set of times to another location in the excel workbook. 2. Set up the heading of the column next to it to read conc BFC, M (concentration of blue food coloring in units of molarity). 3. The handout states that the concentration of BFC (in M) is equal to the absorbance multiplied by To set up the formula, click in the first cell of the new column. Enter =, then click on the cell that contains the absorbance at Chem 1B 1 Fossum

2 the corresponding time. Type *5.0e-5 and hit the return key. If the steps were followed correctly, the result in the cell should be the absorbance multiplied by To repeat this same calculation for the rest of the absorbances, click on the cell you just set up with the formula, and copy it. Drag it down to cover the rest of the cells in the column, and paste. Now you should have a new table with times on the left and concentrations on the right. Graph 2 1. To set up another table for the next graph, copy and paste the times in a new section of the workbook. 2. Label the next heading ln [BFC]. In the first cell, enter =ln( and then click on the first concentration that corresponds to the first time. Hit return. Excel should have calculated the natural log of the concentration. 3. Copy this formula from the first cell and paste it to the rest of the cells. Now you have the next data table for the next graph. Graph 3 1. To set up the table for the inverse concentration vs. time graph, copy and paste the list of times in another section of the worksheet. 2. Label the heading for the next column 1/[BFC]. In the first cell, enter =1/, click on the first concentration in the list, and press return. This should take the inverse of the concentration. 3. Copy this formula and paste it in the rest of the cells in the column, and you ve got your third data table. Graph 4 This should be a graph of concentration of blue food coloring vs. time for Experiment Enter the times and absorbance readings for Experiment Copy the set of times to a new location in the Excel worksheet. 3. Set up the heading of the column next to it to read conc BFC, M (concentration of blue food coloring in units of molarity). 4. To set up the formula, click in the first cell of the new column. Enter =, then click on the cell that contains the absorbance at the corresponding time. Type *5.0e-5 and hit the return key. If the steps were followed correctly, the result in the cell should be the absorbance multiplied by Copy and paste this formula in the remaining cells in this column. Now you should have a new table with times on the left and concentrations on the right. Chem 1B 2 Fossum

5 Practice: 1. Here is some data for a first order reaction with a rate constant of 0.20 min -1 and an initial concentration of 4.00 M. To practice making a graph, enter this data into your workbook. time, min conc, M Follow the steps described (#4-10), and make a graph of concentration vs. time. Include the title, label the axes, show the gridlines, and make this a full-page graph. 3. As you can see, this graph is not a straight line. For this particular type of function, you can get Excel to draw a trendline. Under the Chart menu, choose Add trendline. Then, under Type, choose exponential. Even if there is error in the data, the program will draw the best exponential curve to fit the data. Note: this doesn t work for every type of function! This function (concentration vs. time for a first order reaction) happens to be exponential. 4. Now let s convert this data into its straight line form and make a graph of the straight line. As mentioned, this is data for a first order reaction. A plot of ln[a] vs. t should be a straight line. Go back to your workbook (choose sheet 1 on the tabs shown on the bottom edge of the workbook). 5. Make another table. List time as the first column, and ln of concentration as the second column. Use the same times listed above, and have Excel calculate the natural log (ln) of each of the above concentrations. Enter the results in the table. 6. Select this new set of data, and follow steps 4-11 to create a graph. This graph should be a straight line, so when you choose add trendline, select linear as the type of function. Chem 1B 5 Fossum
