Copper Cycle Lab Purpose: In this experiment the student will gain familiarity with basic lab procedures, some chemistry of a typical transition element, and the concept of percent yield. Equipment: Balance (2) 250 mL beakers Evaporating dish Stirring rod Hotplate 100 mL grad cylinder Weighing paper Materials: 0.5 g of copper wire 2.0 M H2SO4 (aq) Acetone Conc. HNO3 (aq) 3.0 M NaOH Granular zinc Introduction: Understanding the type of reaction taking place is an important part of predicting the products of a reaction. Common chemical reactions can be described as synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, double replacement, combustion, or oxidation and reduction reactions. Each of these types of reactions behaves in a similar fashion.
Name: 6.03: Calorimetry Data and Observations: Part I: Insert a complete data table, including appropriate significant figures and units, in the space below. Also include any observations that you made over the course of part I. (4 points) I observed that when the metal is placed inside the calorimeter, it transfers heat to the water making the water increase temperature while the metal will decrease temperature. I also noticed that the system was the metal and the surroundings is the water, this is because the water is taking in the heat from the metal making the water warm. Metal Name Mass of Metal Volume of water Initial temp.
1. Develop hypotheses predicting the effect of pyrite and coal on the acidity of water? a. Pyrite hypothesis = If pyrite is added to a beaker with 100mL of water, then it will reduce the pH over 48 hours. b. Coal hypothesis = It activated carbon is added to a beaker with 100mL of water, then it will increase the pH over 48 hours.
If 0.100 mol of hydrogen iodide is placed in a 1.0 L container and allowed to reach equilibrium, find the concentrations of all reactants and products at equilibrium. 2 HI (g) === H2 (g) + I2 (g) Ke = 1.84(10-2 [H2]=[I2]= 1.07(10-2 mol/L, [HI]=7.86(10-2 mol/L 6. A 1.00 L reaction vessel initially contains 9.28(10-3 moles of H2S. At equilibrium, the concentration of H2S of 7.06(10-3 mol/L. Calculate the value of Ke for this system.
Add 1 mL of deionized water to the small test tube containing the precipitate and mix it and centrifuge it for 60 seconds. Then, add the supernatant into the boiling test tube and repeat this step one more time with another 1 mL of deionized water. Acquire a pair of metal test tube holders and heat the boiling test tube to evaporate the water for 15 minutes. Let is cool after and weigh it. Then, calculate a percent yield of zinc iodide and write a balanced chemical equation and determine the limiting

Develop hypotheses predicting the effect of pyrite and coal (activated carbon) on the acidity of water? a. Pyrite hypothesis = If pyrite is added to water, then the acidity of the water is neutral. b. Coal (activated carbon) hypothesis = If coal or activated carbon is added to water then the acidity of water is basic.

Develop hypotheses predicting the effect of pyrite and coal on the acidity of water? a. Pyrite hypothesis = If pyrite is introduced to the water, then it will be more acidic. b. Coal hypothesis = If coal is introduced to the water, then the ph level will stay the same.
The purpose of the experiment was to do a solution, which molarity is 0.20 mol/l, from water and an ionic compound. Our ionic compound was zinc sulfate (ZnSO4). Our task was to make one hundred milliliters (100 ml) of the solution. Materials To execute the experiment we used the following equipment: - a beaker - a volumetric flask - a plastic spoon - a scale - a pipette - a funnel - a cork cap We also used solid zinc sulfate (ZnSO4), and distilled and deionized water to make the solution. Calculations To figure out the amount of zinc sulfate that we had to add to the water, so that the molarity of the solution would be 0.20 g/mol, we did the following steps: First we calculated the amount of the zinc sulfate to add in moles.
Therefore, according to Hess’s law, the heat of reaction of the one reaction should be equal to the sum of the heats of reaction for the other two. This concept is sometimes referred to as the additivity of heats of reaction. The primary objective of this experiment is to confirm this law. The reactions we will use in this experiment are: 18 - 1 Computer 18 You will use a Styrofoam cup in a beaker as a calorimeter, as shown in Figure 1. For purposes of this experiment, you may assume that the heat loss to the calorimeter and the surrounding air is negligible.
