Data and Results A. Data Tables and Plots a. Table 1. Synthesis of a Metal Oxalate Mass (g) Molar Mass(g/mol) Moles of Reactant (mol) Actual Mass of Product (g) Theoretical Mass (g) Percent Yield (%) FeCl 3 *6H 2 O 1.600 270.32 0.005919 2.755 2.908 94.74 K 2 C 2 O 4 *H 2 O 6.500 184.24 0.03528 b. Observations of Synthetic Reaction i. A soft, green, powdery crystal formed when the two solutions were mixed. B. Sample Calculations a. Limiting reagent of synthesis reaction i. 1.600 g 1 1 mol 270.32 g = 0.005919 mol FeC l 3 6 H 2 O ii. 6.500 g 1 1 mol 184.24 g = 0.03528 mol K 2 C 2 O 4 H 2 O 1 mol 3 mol = 0.01176 mol iii. Therefore, FeCl 3 * 6H 2 O is the limiting reactant b. Theoretical yield of synthesis reaction i.
