The purpose of this lab is to focus on how to make zinc iodide in a different way using compounds instead of elements, which are barium iodide and zinc sulfate. We will see if the reaction between these two compounds will occur and make a prediction by writing a chemical equation. The procedures for this lab are to place a small test tube inside a 50mL beaker and weigh it. Then, using a spatula, add 0.45±0.03 g of zinc sulfate heptahydrate into the small test tube and record the mass. After that, dissolve the sample in 2 mL of deionized water and shake the test tube for 1 to 1 ½ minutes to dissolve the solid.
Observing Changes – Materials & Procedures Materials Water Copper (II) sulphate (Powder) Copper (II) sulphate solution Iron nail Sodium carbonate Hydrochloric acid Magnesium ribbon Flame (candle) Sugar Aluminum foil Test tubes Test tube rack Tongs Medicine dropper Spoons Beakers Safety goggles Scoopulas Procedures Water and Copper (II) Sulphate Procedure 1. Add a small amount of solid copper (II) sulphate to a test tube with a scoopula. Record the physical properties. 2. Write a hypothesis on what you think will happen when water is added.
Lab # 4 : The Redox Arena II Procedural Summary There will be three different sized test tubes that will be used in this experiment, a boiling tube, a large and small test tube. The boiling tube will be labeled “R” for “reactants”. A scale with a weighing paper will be tared before adding 2 grams of granular zinc (Zn), record the mass, and then move the zinc to the boiling (R) tube. Weigh out 2 grams of iodine crystals, record it, and this will be added to the R tube, with the zinc. The R tube will then be put in a large beaker.
10-29-10 Analysis of Alum Purpose: To determine if the sample crystals are really aluminum potassium sulfate or alum. Materials: alum, beaker, hot plate, thermometer, thermometer clamp, mortar, pestle, capillary tubes, small rubber bands, stirring rob, goggles. Procedure: Determine the melting point: 1. Pulverize with pestle about 2.00 grams of alum. 2.
Aim To compare the reactivity of various metals by observing their reaction with hydrochloric acid Hypothesis That the all the metals will produce foam and a pop. Variables Independent – Magnesium, Aluminium, Zinc, Copper Dependent – Detergent, Hydrochloric Acid Controlled – Size of the metals, amount of detergent and hydrochloric acid Materials 2 M hydrochloric acid Detergent 10 x test tubes and test tube rack and 5 rubber stoppers 0.5 cm pieces of magnesium, aluminium, zinc and copper 2 cm pieces of magnesium, aluminium, zinc and copper Steel wool Ruler Timer Bench mat Matches and birthday candle Marking pen Safety Remember to wear safety glasses and protective gloves when you do this experiment. 2 M HCl is corrosive. Wash with plenty of water should you get any on your skin or in your eyes. Method Part 1 1 Clean the surface of the 0.5cm piece of magnesium with a piece of steel wool 2 Place the magnesium into a test tube 3 Add three drops of detergent to the test tube 4 Add 2 cm of hydrochloric acid to the test tube.

Error Is 6.34% Lab Report: Part 1: In this lab we used the following supplies: * Zinc Iodide * Na2H2EDTA(s) * Calmagite indicator solution * pH 10 buffer solution * 6M Acetic Acid * Unknown Zinc Compound The main purpose for this part of the lab was to determine the amount of zinc ion in a sample of ZnI2 by titration. The two types of zinc: * Zinc iodide made by zinc and iodine * Commercially purchased zinc iodide (the
Jessica Atanova CHEM 104 lab 03/10/14 SUBSTANCES Granular zinc- gray crystal like | Iodine crystals- dark, circular, rock-like | De-ionized water: used for standard Zinc Ion procedure. | Materials: Boiling tube: for products. | Small test tubes: used to centrifuge the solution and precipitate | Graduated cylinder: used for measurement of water | Stirring rod: used various times to stir samples and solutions. | Spatula: used to measure and transfer the substances. | Centrifuge: used to isolate the solid from the solution | .
Then 5mL of HCl was added to copper to completely remove all traces of zinc. Once the bubbling had stopped, the rest of the liquid was decanted away from the copper. Then the copper recovery set up was put together using tubing, Buchner funnel, filter paper and suction flask. Then the filter paper was weighed before placing it in the funnel and wetted down. The aspirator was turned to medium high, and then the copper was poured onto wetted filter paper.
Take sample of Zinc Iodide and dissolve in solution. Then, take the battery, with exposed wire tips attached, and place the tips into the solution. In about 1-2 minutes, there should be a red-brown color coming out of one of the wires, and a dark substance depositing on the other wire, these should iodine and zinc respectively. 2. What are the identities of the substances found after electrolysis and heating?
