College Level Classic General Chemistry Experiment
Students decompose silver oxide by heating a sample in a crucible. By using analytical techniques, the empirical formula of silver oxide is determined. The Law of Multiple Proportions and the Law of Conservation of Mass are demonstrated. Students gain valuable hands-on experience using an analytical balance and a crucible. An alternate procedure for the laboratory is included along with supplemental questions.
Complete for 24 students working in pairs.
