Empirical Formula Lab Report

INTRODUCTION John Dalton’s atomic theory states that elements combine in simple numerical ratios to form compounds. A compound, no matter how it is formed, always contains the same elements in the same proportion by weight. The law of mass conservation states that mass can neither be created nor destroyed. In this experiment, the mass of…

Grignard Synthesis

Objective: The goal of this lab is to synthesize a Grignard reagent from bromobenzene and magnesium metal in diethyl ether. This same Grignard reagent would then be used to prepare a tertiary alcohol and then purify and characterize the product. Procedure: Refer to the microscale lab in pages 124-130 (15.1 and 15.2) in Modern Projects…

Law of Constant Composition Lab

Purpose: To determine the percent magnesium by mass in magnesium oxide and to observe if the percentage composition is constant by comparing class results. Hypothesis/Prediction: The percent composition by mass of magnesium in magnesium oxide will not change significantly with each group that conducted the experiment. The composition of each substance should stay the same…

Percentage Composition by Mass of Magnesium Oxide

Percentage composition by mass of magnesium oxide – Report Objective: To measure and calculate the ratio of magnesium to oxygen in magnesium oxide. To compare the lab ratio to the percent composition calculation based on the formula. Hypothesis: Based on the law of definite proportions, the percentage composition of magnesium oxide should be around 60%…

Magnesium Diboride

Magnesium diboride (MgB2) is a metal with some very special properties. At a temperature of 39 K1 (about -234i?? Centigrade), it becomes what is known as a superconductor. You may have heard that as metals decrease in temperature, their resistance decreases. How ever, in some materials, the pattern of a gradual decrease in resistance is…

To Determine Enthalpy Change of Hydration of Magnesium Sulphate(VI)

1) Experiment No: 8A 2) Objective: To determine the heat of formation of calcium carbonate. 3) Date: 26th Nov, 2010 4) Theory: The experiment consists of 2 parts: a) In the 1st part, an accurately weighed known mass of calcium is added to a given dilute hydrochloric acid. During the addition, the following occurs: Ca(s)…

Formula of Magnesium Oxide

Chemistry Practical Assessment: Finding the formula of Magnesium Oxide (Skill 3) Results: Table showing measurements before experiment: Mass of crucible (g) Mass of lid (g) Mass of magnesium (g) Mass of crucible and magnesium (g) . Mass of products and reactants: ? mass of crucible: 14. 21g ? mass of crucible and magnesium before heating:…

Acids and varying concentrations

Hydrochloric acid 1M hydrochloric acid 1. 5M hydrochloric acid 2M hydrochloric acid Results of the reaction between sulphuric acid and magnesium: time/s Columns 2, 3, 4 and 5 show the volume of gas (in cm3) produced when different concentrations of sulphuric acid are used in the reaction with magnesium. 0. 5M sulphuric acid 1M sulphuric…

Acid (Hcl) and Magnesium (Mg)

What it also means is that more collisions are successful as the particles impact with a greater force and more bonds are broken. To show how I calculated the rate of reaction graph I have included a table. Temp (0C) Total Volume (cm3) Time taken (seconds) Rate (volume/time) (cm3/s) (to 2 dp)  EXPLAINING WHAT HAPPENED…

The mass would be measured

Introduction: Magnesium is a metal which need get rid of two electrons; oxygen is a gas at room temperature and it needs two electrons and magnesium oxide is ionic compound because when they join up they are ions and both elements have an opposite charge which creates electrostatic attraction between them creating a very strong…

The time allocated

To find to what extent certain factors speed up the rate of the first reaction involved with making ‘Epsom Salts. There are four possible factors that could be used to increase the rate of this reaction involving Magnesium and Sulphuric acid to produce Epsom salts. Preliminary Research: Magnisium: Scientific definition and uses: Magnisium is a…

The reactions between acids and metals

A 1 cm length of magnesium ribbon was placed into 10cm of acid in a 1. 00M solution, at room temperature. Each experiment was timed in seconds for the metal to be displaced. The results of the experiment are shown in the table below: Acid Time (Seconds) Sulphuric 50. 42 Hydrochloric 81. 11 Nitric 372….

Chemistry Investigation to find the Empirical Formula of Magnesium Oxide

During the experiment the crucible used was slightly damaged however did not continue to break or cause any inconvenience to the investigation. For approximately ten minutes, no reaction was visible. The substance contained no odour. After approximately fifteen minutes the piece of magnesium commenced to burn with an overall duration of twenty minutes. When burnt,…

Determine the Empirical Formula of Magnesium Oxide by reacting a known mass of Magnesium with Oxygen

Safety Risk Assessment: Properly follow lab safety guidelines by wearing lab coats, gloves, and goggles and clear any personal belongings off the experiment area or the apparatus table. Gently handle glassware. Be careful when dealing with Bunsen burners. Make sure the crucible does not break while heating it as it might break due to the…

Finding thr Percentage Composition of Magnesium Oxide

Introduction According to Encyclopedia Britannica, the law of definite proportions is a “statement that every chemical compound contains fixed and constant proportions (by weight) of its constituent elements.” Using experimental data in this investigation, it will determine the percentage composition of magnesium oxide. Chemists believe that the energy released by the synthesis combustion reaction is…
