Analysis of Hydrated Copper Sulphate
The above experiment was conducted to determine the amount of Copper and water present in the given sample of hydrated Copper (II) Sulphate.
Gravimetric analysis used in this experiment refers to a set of techniques in analytical chemistry aimed at the quantitative determination of an analyte based on the mass of a given solid. In most gravimetric methods the analyte, in this case hydrated Copper Sulphate, is first converted to solid by precipitation with an appropriate reagent, Oxine in this case. The solid precipitate is then collected by filtration (precipitation). The lab scientist washes the precipitate since it is Continue reading...
