    I need help with an old VGA Smart-IQ+ Mass spectrometer

    No problems. Some of the old instruments like that are quite powerful, it's sad you can't use it anymore.

    I need help with an old VGA Smart-IQ+ Mass spectrometer

    Good luck to you. I have an ancient AAS spectrometer with Win95 I'm trying to get up and running. If it came with original discs, you may be able to track down on ebay/similar sites if you have the model and serial no. I found a few vintage/old lab equipment sites when looking for parts/manuals...

    How do you seperate iron from clay?

    Red bricks have an iron (II) oxide added. Same reason why you can get brown and yellow etc. Different metal oxide combinations, if you look in the old books on building and painting (I have one from 1951) they tell you what pigments give you what colours, and back then you bought iron (II) oxide...

    Unknown thermochemical properties help please

    Thanks Quantum Defect. I have a few old chemistry books here handed down from the old metallurgist and other chemists if I can't find them online.

    Unknown thermochemical properties help please

    They did leave me the units of the constants, J/molK. Thanks for the actual heat capacity equation, I haven't done integration for years so I was going to wait until I got home and got the old text book out.

    Unknown thermochemical properties help please

    Thanks Quantum Defect. Coming from an analytical chem and earth science background, my maths knowledge is very limited. Excuse the ignorance, what is CpdT? A derivative of Cp wrt temperature?

    Unknown thermochemical properties help please

    I've figured out the equation in which they are used in. This appears a number of times in the model, and often as sums, but the base of it is this: A(T- Tref) + (B/2000)( T2- T2) – 100000C(1/T - 1/Tref) + D-6/3(T3- Tref3) Where T is any temperature (in one example it's the temperature of the...

    Unknown thermochemical properties help please

    Hi all, I've joined this forum as a last resort seeing no one else here knows (well, before maybe joining other forums?). I've been handed an old model of the iron ore plant I work at which was made in the 90s in excel (the model was made then, not the plant!). The metallurgist at the time was...
