Table 2 Test solutions – inorganic compounds 1. When the reaction is complete, should the exact mass of the unknown metal powder remaining in the weighing jn be determined?

Transition metals are typically reacted with complexing agents to intensify the color of their solutions.

Chromium is a component in automobile brakes and engine parts. Simultaneously perform two duplicate gravimetric analyses using approximately one gram samples of the unknown compound in each analysis. Insert the plastic scoopula into the solution, and swirl it to remove the powdered metal. Perform a second trial by repeating Steps 30—33 to determine the identity of the metal nitrate solution. The speed of light, c, is a constant, 3. Selected pages Title Page.

If a precipitate forms, write complete and balanced formula unit and net ionic equations for the reaction. We are indebted to his insight and persistence. The acid solution referred to in Appendix F is the unknown metal nitrate solution an acidic solution. Add 2—3 drops of phenolphthalein indicator to the HCl solution. Notice any metal ion spots that are visible on the paper.

Write NR if no reaction occurs. What is the average percent error for the calculated percent by mass for the two trials? The dimensions of a regularly shaped object can be measured with a ruler and the volume calculated using the appropriate geometric equation. After 15 minutes, the green marker and green food dyes each separated into two components, a yellow component and a blue component.


Obtain a strip of magnesium ribbon that is approximately 1 inch in length. In an experiment, The thiocyanate ion, SCN, is a commonly used complexing agent.

By assigning oxidation numbers to each atom involved in a chemical reaction, we can monitor the electron transfer that occurs. Which reactant, the unknown compound or the precipitating reagent, must be in excess? For example, when titrating nickel II nitrate solution with 0. In some cases, this is not always feasible. Remove any pieces of metal from the beaker, and pour the water into the sink.

Calculate the Rf values of A, B, and C, and each component of the unknown mixture. Never add boiling chips to a hot solution. Heating of the solution ceases once the solution clears and the precipitate settles to the bottom of the container. After the paper has dried, circle the sample spots with a pencil, and place a dot at the center of each spot.

Small, highly charged transition metal ions have a large charge density. Determination of Ka or Kb for an Acid or Base.

Measurene emit a characteristic pattern of emission wavelengths. The other component s in the mixture will not decompose upon heating. Quantitative analysis is used to determine the percentage of a particular element or ion in a sample. How will this affect the calculated density of the irregular solid? The format for writing the Procedure Proposal is provided in Appendix C Add 4—5 drops of 1.

The reactions most often encountered in general chemistry experiments fall into two categories: To enable us to see transition metal ions on the chromatogram, we will subject them to ammonia vapor to produce colored, chmistry ions. The thermometer must not touch the bottom or the walls of the test tube tip of thermometer should be at least 1 cm from the bottom of the test tube.

Cover the beaker with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, being careful not to splash any solvent on the paper. Concentrated sodium hydroxide can cause permanent cornea damage to the eye. Should you record the unknown number in the Lab Report?

For consistency, a concave meniscus is read at the bottom of the curvature at eye level. What are some possible sources of error in the experimental data? You were instructed to use dilute nitric acid to wash silver chloride, and to use distilled water to wash barium sulfate and calcium carbonate.

It is a violation of Federal Law to leave a Waste Container uncapped. Label each liquid in the cylinder as A, B, or C. Safety goggles must be worn in the laboratory at all times.

Observe the residue in the crucible and record your observations in the lab report. Why was water used, in place of nitric acid, to wash barium sulfate and calcium carbonate? Three milliliters each of liquids A, B, and C are slowly added to a mL graduated cylinder.
