    the reactions were not fully completed; 2) the readings of the masses were incorrect since it took a while for the electronic balance to reach the real mass. Thus, if the experimenter did not wait till the readings stopped changing; the recorded data would be smaller than they were supposed to be. These could cause random errors.

    Then again I weighed 3.2 g of anhydrous copper (II) sulphate using an electronic mass balance and a filter paper and added it to a polystyrene cup which already had 50 cm3 of distilled water and a thermometer to measure the temperature changes after every 0.5 minute.

    Same thermometer has been used for all the temperature readings. Ruler Different rulers have different systematic and random errors. Same ruler is used to measure all the strips of magnesium strip. Time interval between each reading of temperature If readings are taken inconsistently, maximum temperature might be incorrectly determined because

  2. Discovering the formula of MgO

    0,062 /16,000 = 0,004 Dividing by the smallest ratio: we get ratio approx. 1 Mg : 1O This would suggest a formula of MgO, which is the correct formula. Hence we prove that the equation is: 2Mg + O2? 2MgO.
