Ryan O’Hearn Chemical Principles I Lab - 1011.205.51 Experiment 4 – Preparation of Compounds and Determination of Formulas 09:42:16 Purpose Make two compounds and figure out their empirical formulas. First, we will create a reaction between metal, magnesium, and oxygen by heating strips of magnesium, which will combine with oxygen in the air. Also, make a solid out of two ions in water.
