See the true colors of copper carbonate. The empirical formula of copper carbonate is not obvious but its parts can be investigated and related to the composition of the whole. Students measure the amount of gas generated and apply colorimetric analysis to determine the identity of an unknown copper carbonate. This hands-on experiment will help students learn the concepts of empirical formulas, standard dilution, percent composition, and colorimetric comparison.
Includes reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, complete Teacher Notes with sample data and answers to questions and all chemicals needed to perform the lab.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
