In the first part of the experiment, we are pressured because we have to make 15 mixtures in an hour. So our group leader, Katya, was frightened because we are not yet complete in terms of the materials needed for the experiment. When we were about to start the experiment, Katya panicked even more because me and Faisal, the ones who are doing the mixtures are not in a hurry. When the glass jar with water was put on the hot plate and the first mixture was already inside, eventually the glass jar breaks due to a high temperature of the hot plate. So we needed another glass jar and that makes our group hurry more. Later on, Katya was calmed because we are doing the experiment well. Even though we weren’t able to make 15 mixtures, as well as the other groups, we were able to know Fischer Esterification and that esters have a distinct smell.
I learned that you need to be calm even though you are lacking out of time.
