  1. Experiment - The Empirical Formula of Magnesium Oxide

    These could cause random errors. Another random error could be that when the crucible lid was lifted, the produced powdered magnesium oxide might have escaped the crucible. The mass would then be heavier than it was weighed. As shown on the graph, R2 (the correlation coefficient)

    Based on the data processing in trail run, 1,2,3,4 the Mg/O ratio of 1.2 and I would have conclude from my experiment that the empirical formula of magnesium oxide is Mg6O5 . My method for determining this is as follows: Explanation of conclusion: If the Mg/O ratio is 1.2, that means that the empirical formula would be Mg1.2 O.

    Then 50ml of HCl was measured. Then its temperature was measured. These two solutions were then mixed together in a can. The temperature change was measured using a thermometer and stopwatch. Results for route one. In table1.1, the temperatures of NaOH and 2M HCl before the reaction began were 22.5�0.1�c.

    It had same texture as water. Magnesium metal strip Its color was dull silver and it was a grey strip before cleaning but was shiny after I rubbed it with a sand paper. It was very ductile. Magnesium oxide It was a fine white powder and it looked like floor.

  1. To determine the standard enthalpy of formation of Magnesium Oxide using Hess Law.

    can lead to different heat transfer rates and this is because different calorimeters are made up of different construction and specifications. The same calorimeter was used to perform all the experiments. Thermometer Different thermometers have different ranges and systematic and random errors.

    When it came into contact with the oxygen, the magnesium started glowing extremely bright, and intensely white. The glow became orange after some time. The magnesium ribbon then turned into a white powder. Processed data: Raw Data Processed data Serial No.
