f 37.0 g of MgSO4⋅7H2O is thoroughly heated, what mass of anhydrous magnesium sulfate will remain?

round to three sig figs


Expert Answer

Step 1

On strong heating, water molecules get removed and turn hydrated salt into anhydrous salt.

The molecular mass of  (MgSO4.7H2O) hydrated salt is 246.47g/mol.

The molecular mass of MgSO4 salt is 120.36 g/mol.

Given the mass of  MgSO4.7H2O is 37 g.

Step 2

No. of moles is the given mass of substance divided by its molecular mass. It is represented by equation 1 where n is no. of mole, m ...
