Featured in PASCO’s College Chemistry Instructor Guide
College Instructor edition with 36 experiments covering introductory and general chemistry topics.
Empirical Formula of Compound
Use a crucible and Bunsen burner to react a chemical with air in order to determine the stoichiometric composition of an ionic compound.
Students determine the stoichiometric composition of an ionic compound.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures using a balance and a Bunsen burner to:
- Perform a reaction under controlled conditions—heating a metal to form the metal oxide.
- Eliminate the byproduct of a reaction and convert it to a desired product.
- Determine the change in mass to find the stoichiometric composition of the metal oxide.
