Sodium Chloride Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
The objective of this experiment was to prepare sodium chloride. When the sodium bicarbonate and 10% hydrochloric acid were combined, a fizzing sound and numerous bubbles occurred. This continued until about seventy drops of hydrochloric acid was added to the beaker containing sodium bicarbonate which then a clear liquid was produced. This reaction created sodium chloride which was found by heating the beaker, evaporating everything besides the HCl. As the evaporation took place, condensation occurred on the inside and steam rose from the beaker. The leftover sodium chloride was colorless and looked like small, salt like crystals. The total lab results were combined for multiple reasons. Having more then two results to compare makes it easier
