The product made during this experiment was the chromium oxalate complex, K 3 [Cr(C 2 O 4 ) 3 ]*3H 2 O. During filtration of the product, a gap developed between the filter paper and the funnel bottom, allowing the crystallized solid to escape into the solution. Due to water being added to rinse the beaker, the chromium complex was now dissolved in a much larger amount of water, and it was not possible to recrystallize the solid even by chilling in an ice bath. As a result, another group's data had to be used for analysis. The calculated yield of the product was 98.02%. This is close to the theoretical maximum of 100%, indicating that the reactants were reacted almost completely and in correct stoichiometric ratios. The small difference could be caused by the slow rate of reaction of the
