Lab 9: Formula of a Hydrate Lab
To utilize mole conversions to determine the ratio between copper (II) sulfate molecules and water of hydration.
1 Hot Plate
1 Wire Mesh
1 Small beaker
1 Glass Stirring Rod
1 Electronic Scale
1 Crucible Tong
Copper II Sulfate Hydrate (approx. 5g)
1. Mass small beaker (empty)
2. Obtain approximately 5 grams of Copper II sulfate hydrate
3. Put hydrate in beaker and find the mass.
4. Turn hot plate on medium high.
5. Place beaker and copper II sulfate hydrate on hot plate.
6. Very carefully stir hot material occasionally with glass rod.
7. Heat until blue color is gone.
8. Turn off hot plate and unplug.
9. Let beaker cool until you can handle it.
10. Mass beaker and copper II sulfate anhydrate.
11. Wipe out beaker into trash and wash out.
12. Clean up lab station.
13. Perform calculations.
