## Question:

Suppose 4.567 g of magnesium sulfate hexahydrate is heated to drive off the water of crystallization.

a) Calculate what mass of water would be expected to be released from the salt.

b) Calculate what mass of anhydrous salt would remain.

c) Calculate the percentage of water in the hydrate.

## Hydrates:

A compound is classified as ionic when it contains ions attracted to one another by an ionic bond. In addition, ionic compounds can be classified as hydrates or anhydrous salts. A hydrate contains associated water molecules while anhydrous salts do not.
