Date Performed: 9/17/07 Joshua LaCelle Date Submitted: 9/24/07 Lab Partner: Nick Rorrer Instructor: Steven Burrows Determination of a Chemical Formula Objective: To determine the percentage composition and simplest formula for an oxide of copper by its reduction with methane gas (CH 4 ) at approximately 500 o C. This experiment is a study of stoichiometry. Experimental Data: Mass Copper Oxide 1.999g ± .0014g Mass Cu 1.642g ± .0014g Mass Oxygen 0.357g ± .0017g Moles Cu .0258 moles ± .0014 moles Moles O .0225 moles ± .0017 moles Mole Ratio 1:1 = CuO = Copper(II)Oxide Sample Calculations: Mass Copper Oxide = Mass Test Tube and Copper Oxide – Mass Test Tube = (19.431g ± .001g) – (17.432 ± .001g) = 1.999g ± .0014g Page 1 of 3
