The precipitate was a thick white color, not transparent. | Heating the Precipitate in a boiling tube containing 2 boiling chips | The mixture began producing a large amount of bubbles, as we continued heating it only white powder remained. | Observations of Chemicals | Zinc Sulfate | Powder of a white solid | Barium Iodide | Powder of a white solid. | Deionized water | Liquid, transparent. | Trial # | BaI2 | ZnSO4 | Theoretical Yield of ZnI2 | Actual Yield | Percent Yield | 1 | .67g | .45g | .499820g | .52g | 104% | 2 | .67g | .45g | .499820g | .52g | 104% | 3 | .66g | .46g | .493117g | .48g | 97% | Calculations for Cost | Double Replacement | Synthesis | 0.48 grams of Zinc Sulfate - $0.02 | 1.00 gram Granular Zinc - $62.50 | 0.67grams of Barium Iodine Dihydrate - $0.886 | 2.00 gram Iodine - ($74.90 × 2) - $149.80 | 0.52 grams of Zinc Iodide - $0.906 | 1.00 gram zinc - $0.212 | 1000 grams of Zinc Iodide = $1,923.00 | 1000 grams of Zinc Ioidide = $212.30 | Focus Question Should chemists prepare Zinc Iodide, from its Elements or from a Double Replacement Reaction between Barium Iodide and Zinc Sulfate?
