copper (II) sulphate salt

Each working group will require:
Glass beaker (100 cm3)
Conical flask (100 cm3)
Spatula
Glass stirring rod
Filter funnel (Note 1)
Filter paper (Note 2)
Bunsen burner, tripod and gauze
Heat resistant mat

PROCEDURE

Stage 1 a Add 20 cm3 of the 0.5 M sulfuric acid to the 100 cm3 beaker. Heat carefully on the tripod with a gentle blue flame until nearly boiling.
SAFETY: Be very careful not to knock the tripod while the beaker is on it.

b When the acid is hot enough (just before it starts to boil), use a spatula to add small portions of copper(II) oxide to the beaker. Stir the mixture gently for up to half a minute after each addition.
SAFETY: When adding the solid to the beaker, take care to avoid knocking the beaker. c When all the copper(II) oxide has been added, continue to heat gently for 1 to 2 minutes to ensure reaction is complete. Then turn out the Bunsen burner. It may be wise to check (using pH or litmus paper) that no acid remains. If the acid has not been hot enough, excess acid can co-exist with copper oxide. If someone should decide to attempt to evaporate the acid after filtering, the lab would fill with fumes. d Allow the beaker to cool slightly while you set up Stage 2.

Stage 2 e Place the filter funnel in the neck of the conical flask. f Fold the filter paper to fit the filter funnel, and put it in the funnel. g Make sure the beaker is cool enough to hold at the top. The contents should still be hot. h Gently swirl the contents to mix, and then pour into the filter paper in the funnel. Allow to filter through. i A clear blue solution should collect in the flask. If the solution is not clear, and black powder remains in it, you will need to repeat the filtration. Stage 3 (optional) j Rinse the beaker, and pour the clear blue solution back into it. Label the beaker with your name(s). Leave the beaker in a warm place, where it won't be disturbed, for a week or so.

    In the fume hood, approximately 2g of Ca(OH)2 was dumped from a vail into a 250ml beaker. To avoid any left-over Ca(OH)2 inside the vail, certain amount of distill water wad added to it, and the vail was shook several times after the lid was closed. Pouring the solution in the vail into the beaker, and add distill water until it reached the 100ml line. Then, the beaker was put on top of a magnetic stir with a magnetic stir bar placed in it. Turning on the magnetic stirrer and allowing the stir bar…

    markers and filter paper and our choices may have affected our results. For example, we had the choice between a coffee filter and a circular piece of filter paper. We originally chose the coffee filter but we thought the creases in our paper would distort our results. After finally deciding on the circular paper and cutting it into a rectangle, I placed it in the beaker to see if it fit properly. Unfortunately, I did not notice that the beaker had water in it and had soaked the edge of the filter paper…

    Beach In A Beaker Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to create a heterogeneous mixture from substances commonly found at the beach. Sand and salt water will be added to the beaker to be separated. The sand will then be separated through the means of filtration. Then the salt will be separated from the water through evaporation. Theory: If the heterogeneous mixture is separated through filtration then the salt water and sand should be separated completely.A heterogeneous mixture is a mixture…

    Heather Boyd Final Paper December 17th, 2014 The Hedwig Glass Beaker When we think of beakers we think of cool experiments we’ve done in science class in middle school to measure fluids, or contents, approximately. Sometimes we also think of beakers as cups, something that we drink out of or use for everyday use in the kitchen. Hundreds of years ago, particularly during the medieval times, beakers were not how we see them today. To be more specific, beakers, or Hedwig Glass beakers, were miraculous beakers that turned…

    FILTERS: Filters of some sort are essential to the operation of most electronic circuits. Filters and Signals: What Does a Filter Do? In circuit theory, a filter is an electrical network that alters the amplitude and/or phase characteristics of a signal with respect to frequency. Ideally, a filter will not add new frequencies to the input signal, nor will it change the component frequencies of that signal, but it will change the relative amplitudes of the various frequency components and/or…
