Purpose: To determine the identity of an unknown nitrate salt, MNO 2 , (where M + is an alkali metal cation, Li + , Na + , K + , or Rb + ) by dissolving it into H 2 O and reacting it with excess sulfate. Results and Discussion: Nitrate salt # 6313 Volume A 600 mL beaker was used to hold displaced H 2 O. It was filled with enough H 2 O to submerge the tip of the dropper so as not to uptake air and create air bubbles. The original mass of the beaker and water was measured as 443.80g. After the experiment, the mass was 716.00g. The Mass of H 2 O displaced was calculated: 716.00g -443.80g= 272.20g H 2 O displaced Given that at 27.0ºC, the density of H 2 O is 0.9965162g/mL, the volume of water produced was calculated: ( 29 L mL L O gH O mlH O gH 273 . 0 1000 1 9965162 . 0 1 20 . 272 2 2 2 H 2 O displaced Temperature The temperature of the H 2 O in the Erlenmeyer Flask was measured as 27.0ºC (+273 = 300.15 K).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
