The goals of the first assignment are to learn and execute proper document formatting, resource and data gathering, data analysis, and to demonstrate knowledge of plagiarism.
In order to successfully complete the first assignment, I will complete a short series of tasks to help get me started. First, I read all supporting documentation on the formatting of the assignment. Then, I read through the assignment and found some information in the tasks that I had questions on. Knowing the assignments tasks, I will gather a short list of reliable resources to help get me started. Next, I will look up background information that I need more knowledge on. For example, I need to look up what the boiling points and enthalpy of vaporization of straight chain 1-monochloroalkanes are. I have not taken Organic Chemistry and this may by my weakness, so I will have to do extra background research. Using my knowledge of general chemistry and Microsoft office, I will practice data gathering and formatting, data analysis, and communication skills in this first assignment.

For task one, we are required to find eight straight chain 1-monochloroalkanes, eight 1-alchohols, and eight 1-monofluoroalkanes. Many online databases list compounds like these and report specific or averaged scientific data. For example, PubChem, NIST, and Chemspider all have reputable data with sources listed for each data point. Following the assignment formatting guidelines, I will construct a table the 24 compounds…
