Brine flows (or seeps) have been proposed to explain the formation of recurring slope lineae, yet no direct evidence for either liquid water or hydrated salts has been found here we analyse spectral data from the compact reconnaissance imaging spectrometer for mars instrument onboard the mars reconnaissance. I'm trying to do some prep work for monday and i kinda understand most of it but i got stuck on this question work out the formula of the hydrated salt mass of cacl2xh20=6573g mass of cacl2=3333g first thing i did was 3333/1111= 003moles and then i'm not sure what to do next please explain. The formula of a hydrated salt is written as the number of moles of water present in one mole of crystalline structure deliquescent materials are substances that absorb water from the atmosphere and eventually become hydrated these materials, usually salts, tend to have a high affinity for water during this process, the. Water in a hydrated salt - microscale microscale hydrated salts a classic chemistry experiment is that to determine the formula of a hydrated salt: more specifically to determine the number of molecules of water of hydration this is normally done in a crucible most commonly in schools, porcelain crucibles are used as they.
Hydrated salt formula objective : 1 to determine the volume of water content in hydrated salt 2 to determine the formula of hydrated salt material / apparatus : crucible with cover hot plate analytical balance glass rod hydrated salt : cuso 4 • x h 2 o method : 1 the crucible is heated for a while 2. The notation hydrated compound⋅nh2o, where n is the number of water molecules per formula unit of the salt, is commonly used to show that a salt is hydrated the n is usually a low integer, though it is possible for fractional values to occur for example, in a monohydrate n is one, and in a hexahydrate n is 6 numerical. These include non–water ice but h2o-bearing material on europa the material is preferentially located in the lineaments and chaos terrain (recently disrupted areas) and was interpreted to be mostly hydrated salt minerals, mostly mgso4 and possibly na2so4, derived from a briny ocean below the ice crust (10–12. These dark, narrow, 100 meter-long streaks called recurring slope lineae flowing downhill on mars are inferred to have been formed by contemporary flowing water recently, planetary scientists detected hydrated salts on these slopes at hale crater, corroborating their original hypothesis that the streaks.
Treatment of results from the results, you will need to find the mass of the hydrated salt, mgso4•xh2o containing water of crystallisation the mass of the anhydrous salt, mgso4 without the water the mass of water that was in the hydrated salt. Streaks of salty water flow down the mountains and canyons of mars during summer seasons, raising the odds that life may one day be found on the red planet, nasa scientists have announced an analysis of the dark patches that ebb and flow on the slopes of mars shows that they contain “hydrated” salt. Create your personal learning account register for free at com deltastep is a social initiative by graduates of iim-ahmedabad, iim-bang. Free essay: experiment 5: percent water in a hydrated salt chemistry 1300 instructor: 2/8/12 abstract: the purpose of this experiment was to determine the.
As a result, small cations are more extensively hydrated than large cations in fact , lithium and sodiun commonly form hydrated salts, whereas the heavier group 1 elements that have bigger cations – potassium, rubidium, and cesium — do not solid ammonium salts are usually anhydrous, or water free, for a similar reason. Abstract we report studies on the thermal and radiolytic stability of the hydrated salt minerals epsomite (mgso4o7h20), mirabilite (na2so4 ß10h20 ), and natron (na2co3 ß 10h20 ) under the low-temperature and ultrahigh vacuum conditions characteristic of the surface of the galilean satellite europa. Hydrated salts have water within their crystals when the crystals are formed from water an anhydrous salt is where the crystal has had the water driven out water of crystallisation occurs for two reasons the first, the ion has a strong electric field and it polarises water such that the water tends to pack.
On heating, hydrous crystals lose their water of crystallization and turn into a powder they are then said to be anhydrous sometimes they may also lose their colour. Ii the thesis committee for kyoung ok lee certifies that this is the approved version of the following thesis: using hydrated salt phase change materials for residential air conditioning peak demand reduction and energy conservation in coastal and transitional climates in the state of california.

Experiment 5 formula of a hydrated salt objectives 1 to determine the percent (by mass) of water in an unknown hydrated salt 2 to determine the number of water molecules per formula unit of the unknown hydrated salt discussion when aqueous solutions of certain ionic compounds (salts) are allowed to evaporate,. To determined the formula of hydrated salt materials/apparatus: crucible or test tube with cover retort stand bunsen burner thermometer balance hydrated salt : cuso4xh2o methods: 1 the crucible is heated for a while 2 the crucible are weight with its cover 3 approxiamately add 2 gram of hydrated salt, weight and. Question the percentage of water in an unknown hydrated salt is to be determined by weighing a sample of the salt, heating it to drive off the water, cooling to room temperature, and re-weighing which procedural mistake would result in determining a percentage of water that is too low (a) i only (b) ii only ( c) both i and ii.
