If the unknown copper salt a student worked with was copper (I) instead of a copper (II), would the calculated molar mass of the unknown salt change? Briefly explain.
The summation of atomic masses of all existing atoms particularly in one mole of a given substance represents the molar mass. The atomic mass of a particular atom demonstrates the total of protons and neutrons (not electrons) number.
Answer and Explanation: 1
It is given that the student has to use the salt of copper (II) but by mistake, the student used the copper (I) salt.
As the molar mass includes...
