The copper is then fed to electrolysis for refining. In an aqueous solution copper is dissolved at the anode, the ion moves across the electrolyte to the cathode and plates out. Cu → Cu2+ + 2 e- (anode) Cu2+ + 2 e → Cu (cathode) Aluminum are commercially extracted mainly from bauxite, which is mostly gibbsite (Al(OH)3). The Bayer process is used to refine the bauxite into alumina or aluminum oxide, which
When aqueous zinc nitrate is reacted with a limited amount of potassium hydroxide, insoluble zinc hydroxide forms. 2 [pic] + [pic] [pic] Zn[pic] [Eq. 1] Zinc hydroxide behaves as a base when it reacts with acids to form salts and water. In a solution containing excess [pic] ions, Zn[pic] acts like an acid and dissolves forming the complex ion[pic]. 2 [pic] + Zn[pic] [Zn[pic]][pic] [Eq.
In redox reaction, one element or compound is reduced and gains electrons, while on the other hand, the other element or compound is oxidized and loses electrons. For this lab, through the given oxidation and reduction numbers from balancing the equation and the electrons, it was shown that Manganese was reduced while Iron was oxidized. Also from the equation, the movement of electrons can be noticed, as it was added or subtracted from the substances. In order to balance an equation, there must be same number of elements on both sides, with the exception of hydrogen and oxygen. From there, in order to balance oxygen, water molecules are enumerated to the opposite of the equation/reaction.
Introduction: The purpose of this experiment is to determine the empirical formula of magnesium oxide formed by the reaction of magnesium with oxygen. To work out formula by the experiment it is necessary to measure the exact masses of each element present in a sample of a compound. Knowing the masses of magnesium and oxygen and its molar masses it is possible to find how many moles of each element is present in the magnesium oxide. The number of moles then can be used to obtain a molar ratio, which gives us the empirical formula of the compound. During the combustion reaction the ribbon of magnesium metal is heated, it reacts with oxygen from the air in a crucible, producing magnesium oxide: magnesium + oxygen → magnesium oxide We measure the mass of magnesium we use for the reaction, and the mass of magnesium oxide produced at the end of it, then we can work out the mass of oxygen that has been combined with the magnesium.
The positively charged ions are attracted to the negative cathode where they gain electrons to form atoms that have no overall charge. The reaction at the cathode is a reduction reaction. The negatively charged ions are attracted to the positive anode where they lose electrons to form atoms that have no charge. The reaction at the anode is oxidation reaction. In the compound, sodium chloride, two gases should be formed; hydrogen and chlorine, they will then be released into the atmosphere.
The blood sample analysed can be determined to have an ethanol content of 0.09% by using the trend lines from Graphs 1 and 2 and the peak area of the blood sample that the chromatograph produced. Introduction The aim of this experiment was to accurately determine the concentration of ethanol in a sample of blood using gas liquid chromatography. Gas Liquid Chromatography has gas as the mobile stage and liquid as the stationary phase. A flame ionisation detector was used which depends on the formation of ions, and the source of the ions is a hydrogen-oxygen flame. The flame burns at a temperature that will produce positively charged ions and electrons from the organic compound used.
Nathan Bahn Beer’s Law Study Lab Introduction: In this lab, we used a spectrometer to observe the transmittance of light at a certain wave length. We experimented to see if the molarity of a solution changes the transmittance of light and the absorbance of that light by the solution. By observing the percent transmittance and the amount of light absorbed, we can calculate the amount of color absorbing components in the solution. Through this process is how we are able to discover the amount of copper in the solution. Experimental Procedure: 250 mL of the copper solution was made by creating 100 mL of the solution, reacting CuO with HNO3, and then diluting to the mark of 250 mL.

Experimental determination of the formula of Magnesium Oxide Introduction In this experiment, the reaction between magnesium from group 2 (metal) and oxygen from group 6 (non-metal) will be observed. Heated magnesium reacts with the oxygen in the air. They bond to each other by ionic bonding. Magnesium will lose two electrons whereas oxygen will gain 2 more electrons (Mg+2O-2). The aim of this experiment is to find the formula of magnesium oxide.
