  1. Experiment - The Empirical Formula of Magnesium Oxide

    As shown on the graph, R2 (the correlation coefficient) equals to 0.5751, indicating that the data was not very reliable since the value was away from 1. In addition, the data points did not spread out, i.e., they were gathering at 0.004 to 0.006 moles. Consequently, the gradient was influenced.

  2. Hesss Law Lab, use Hesss law to find the enthalpy change of combustion of ...

    Mg is the limiting reactant The ratio between magnesium oxide and hydrochloric acid is 1:2 Which means that for (0.00992 mol) of MgO, only (0.01984 mol) of HCl is consumed. Therefore magnesium oxide is the limiting reactant. This is the amount of energy which is given out for 0.40g of MgO.

    the smallest whole number you can possibly find to get whole number: 1.2 x 5 = 6 1 x 5 = 5 The ratio of Mg to O is therefore 6:5 The empirical formula of Magnesium Oxide found for this trial is therefore Mg6O5 Trail 5.

    so it would take longer to reach equilibrium. Catalyst process (Production of Sulphuric Acid) * * Sulphuric acid is used for fertilizers, paints, detergents, fibers, etc. * Forward reaction is exothermic (= -197 kJ mol-1) so it is favoured by low temperature.

    at intervals of 0.5 minute. 3. Thereafter, I weighed 6.0 g of copper (II) sulphate pentahydrate using an electronic mass balance and a filter paper. I completely heated this in a beaker in order to obtain anhydrous copper (II) sulphate.

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

    it would not be possible to draw a good graph using points that are unevenly spaced apart Time interval is taken to be 5 seconds between each reading. Room temperature and pressure Conditions under which the experiments are performed should remain constant The experiments were carried out in the same room and on the same day.

  2. Discovering the formula of MgO

    so we get the formula of Magnesium oxide should which is MgO. Standard graph showing Errors: It is worth evaluating our experiment as there could be several reasons for not getting exact results: 1. the magnesium oxide product may escape as they lift the lid- there would be a less
