Suppose 2.3754 grams of copper (II) sulfate pentahydrate is heated to drive off the water of crystallization. Calculate the weight of anhydrous salt that will remain.
A hydrate is an ionic compound that contains water molecules associated with its crystal structure. The number of water molecules is often indicated by the use of Greek prefixes. An example of a hydrate is sodium tetraborate decahydrate (borax).
Answer and Explanation: 1
The molar mass of copper(II) sulfate pentahydrate is 249.68 g/mol. By using the molar mass of the hydrate and water, we can determine the mass of...
