I. Results and Discussions
This experiment was aimed so that the students would be able to use the analytical balance properly, to be able to gain an understanding of some statistical concepts and be able to use these concepts in analytical chemistry. Analytical Chemistry focuses on the quantitative properties of matter specifically the inorganic compounds. Moreover, this experiment granted the students an overview of the subject.

In the experiment, ten 25c coin samples were weighed using the analytical balance. Forceps were used to handle the coins to ensure that the coin samples will not be tampered with fingerprints that may add to the weight of the samples. The recorded data were divided into two data sets. One data set contains the first six recorded data while the other contains all the 10 recorded values. The recorded data was shown in Table 1.

For each data set, Q-test was used for the highest and lowest value. At 95% confidence level, it was found out that the extreme values for the two data sets are accepted and not an outlier. Calculations for the Q-test can be found in the attached data sheet. Q-test is used for handling rejection of data especially when dealing with small scale observations.

Data recorded in Table 1 were subjected to Measures of Central Tendency, Measures of Precision, and confidence limit aside from the Q-test.

INTRODUCTION
Analytical chemistry involves the separation, identification anddetermination of amounts of components in a particular sample. Accuracy and precision are important in data acquisition to be able to acquire substantial results in the end of the experiment. To attain such goal, replication of measurements must be performed. The reliability of the measurements may then be evaluated through various statistical parameters [1].
Among the acquired data in the course of the experiment, it is possible that not all data are considered valid. Invalid data are called outliers, values that significantly differ among others in the set of data [2]. Before doing the statistical calculations, suspect values, which are the lowest and highest data obtained are evaluated in terms of its acceptability through the Q-test. It makes use of the tabulated critical values for different confidence levels in which the resultant value for the said test should not exceed, otherwise the datum is considered invalid and cannot be included...

Results and Discussion
Statistics is one of the important tools used in chemistry. It defines the measurements gathered, and characterizes the relationship of each value to each other. The experiment aimed to use statisticalconcepts in evaluating the gathered data, find the inevitable errors, and qualify the different parameters of the said data set. Ten one-peso coins were weighed carefully on the analytical balance, separated in to two data sets (see Appendix A, Table 2). It is important to use forceps to prevent undesired fingerprints, which can add undesired weight, while handling the coins. The Ohaus Analytical Plus Series analytical balances were used for the weight analysis. An analytical balance is a weighing tool with a capacity that ranges from 1 g to a few kg with a precision of at least 1 part in 105 at maximum capacity.(2) The statistical parameters of both sets can be found on Table 1.

ABSTRACT
-------------------------------------------------
The objectives of the experiment are to use the analytical balance correctly, to gain an understanding of some concepts of statistical chemistry, and to apply statisticalconcepts in analytical chemistry. The experiment preceded by ten teams weighing ten 25-centavo coins using an analytical balance, weighing by difference. After doing the calculations to analyze the data, some of the values were rejected from their data sets. Overall, the results of the calculations denote that the data values gathered have high precision since the pooled standard deviation is low. The experiment shows that in order to analyze data properly and objectively, one must apply statisticalconcepts.
-------------------------------------------------
Introduction
All measurements are subjected to random errors. Sometimes, data can be either accepted or rejected before they are further analyzed. This is done by calculating the Q-test ( [1]). Computing for the confidence limit ( [2]) in 95% confidence...

A skillful researcher aims to end his study with a precise and accurate result. Precision refers to the closeness of the values when some quantity is measured several times; while accuracy refers to the closeness of the values to the true value. The tool he utilizes to prevent errors in precision and accuracy is called statistics. In order to become familiar to this tactic, the experiment aims to help the researchers become used to the concepts of statistical analysis by accurately measuring the weights of ten (10) Philippine 25-centavo coins using the analytical balance, via the “weighing by difference” method. Then, the obtained data divided into two groups and are manipulated to give statistical significance, by performing the Dixon’s Q-test, and solving for the mean, standard deviation, relative standard deviation, range, relative range, and confidence limit—all at 95% confidence level. Finally, the results are analyzed between the two data sets in order to determine the reliability and use of each statistical function.

This simple experiment only involved the weighing of...

METHODOLOGY
In a gravimetric analysis, the determination is carried out by converting the analyte into an insoluble substance which is isolated and weighed1. In this experiment we used precipitation gravimetry from which the analyte is separated from a solution of the sample as a precipitate and is converted to a compound of known composition that can be weighed2.

results and discussion
In the experiment, ten one-peso coins are used as samples. The 10 samples have the same year of coinage to lessen the error. These are cleansed beforehand. Each weight is measured using the analytical balance and weighed by difference. The analytical balance has the tolerance of ±0.0002 grams. Two Data Sets are set up. All values are recorded in Table 1.
