Lab Assistance – Oxide of Magnesium

MgO

Magnesium Oxide

Background Theory

  • Hmmm… how is it possible to determine a formula using simply mass measurements?
  • Is there some sort of balanced reaction that SHOULD work?

Data

  • Mass of crucible and cover
  • Mass of crucible, cover, coiled magnesium
  • Mass of crucible, cover, oxide (after reaction)

Calculations

  • Mass Magnesium
  • Mass reacted oxygen
  • Moles Magnesium
  • Moles Oxygen
  • Mole Ratio (Mg/O)
  • Percent Error

Analysis

  • By what logic was your answer obtained?
  • What factors introduced uncertainty? How did they impact your result?

Conclusion

  • A statement about the direct result of your experiment (nothing else)
