3. The third source of error is not knowing for how long to exactly heat the magnesium until it no longer ignites and forms into a white powder of magnesium oxide. In the procedure, it is stated for how long to heat the magnesium, but as the lab went on, it is realized that the magnesium had to be heated for a longer time. This could mean that the magnesium could have been not heated long enough or too little for it to be fully converted into the magnesium oxide product effecting the final results of the lab by having smaller
7. When the crucible cooled down so that one was able to hold it, the
The main objective of this experiment is to carry out qualitative analysis to identify metal cations in unknown solution 1.
In this Chemistry Lab the main objective is to perform accurate chemical analysis for the quantity of elements and compounds in a sample. There will be a compound made then synthesized. The methods used were acid-base titrations, redox titrations, gravity filtration, and distillation. General conclusions included
2. Obtained a 2-3 cm strip of magnesium metal ribbon and coiled it loosely into a small ball. Added the magnesium metal to the acid in the test tube.
Magnesium ribbon was reacted with Hydrochloric acid in three different experiments to determine the charge on a metal ion. After running multiple tests in the three different procedures, the Crystallization method proved to be the best method for determining the charge of the metal ion by using mole to mole ratio.
A1.Work under the hood! With a pair of tongs, hold a strip of magnesium in a bunsen burner flame. Do not look directly at the flame. Save the ash in a small beaker for the next procedure. If magnesium is substance "A" in the general equation, what is "B"?
Experiment 2 focused on finding the enthalpy of solution of magnesium chloride. Testing the enthalpy of solution started with measuring out 10 mL of deionized water in a graduated cylinder for three separate trials, each trial having a different mass of magnesium chloride. The water was then poured into a well of a Styrofoam calorimeter then the initial temperature of water was taken using a temperature probe and the LoggerPro programming. A measured amount of magnesium chloride was placed in the same well as the water in the calorimeter,
To begin Lab 7 of Chem 115, a clean and dry porcelain crucible and its cover were obtained. Next, an iron ring was attached to a ring stand. A clay triangle was placed on top to the ring and a Bunsen burner was placed under the ring. Following the setup for the experiment, the crucible and its cover were placed on the clay triangle and were heated for about five minutes. After, the burner was turned off and the crucible and cover were left to cool to room temperature. Once the crucible and its cover had reached room temperature, tongs were used to move them to a wire gauze. Using the wire guaze, the crucible and its cover were transported to an analytical scale to weigh and record the mass of it. Next, a strip of magnesium was obtained and
There are two main errors that could happen in this lab. The first being human error when weighing the elements. This would result in more reactants which would cause more products and a misreading
In the experiment the magnesium reacts with the hydrochloric acid to create magnesium chloride and hydrogen. The balanced formula for this is:
The goal of this experiment was to determine the empirical formula for a hydrate of magnesium sulfate and water. The technique that was used was measure the mass of the hydrate and then apply heat to evaporate the water. Then determine the mass of water that was in the hydrate and the mass of the remaining magnesium sulfate. The equation for the hydrate is determined by calculating the mole to mole ratio of the water and the anhydrous. The resulting formula will be formated as: MgSO4*_H2O
The original 1.0 gram of the 50/50 mixture of the benzoic acid and benzil contain 0.5 gram of benzil. Thus, from 0.5 gram of benzil, only 0.266 gram of benzil was collected. The percent recovery of benzil was calculated to be 53.2%. This low percent recovery could be due to filtration errors. Some amount of benzil remained on the filtration paper that contained the MgSO4. In order for determining the purity of the
5.3 mL of bromobenzne and 15 mL of anhydrous ether was then placed into the separatory funnel and was shaken and vented in order to mix the solution. Half of the bromobenzene solution was added first into the round bottom flask and as soon as a color change was observed, the remaining half of the bromobenzene was added drop wise into the round bottom flask. The mixture was then refluxed on a heating mantle for 10 minutes until most of the magnesium has been consumed.
