Unformatted text preview: sulfate is toxic and an irritant. Zinc sulfate is an irritant and could be toxic. Copper (II) nitrate is toxic, corrosive and an oxidant. Hydrogen gas is produced as part of a reaction, and is highly flammable. This reaction should be performed under the hood. If any of the chemicals come into contact with skin, you should immediately flush with water. We disposed of all the chemicals into the ‘Conservation of Mass’ waste bottle. Initially, I used 0.357 g of copper metal. At the end of the experiment, I recovered .309 g of copper metal. The percent recovery was 86.6%. Theoretically, the mass of the end result should have been the same as the original amount. Errors made have been made during some of the reactions, such as not allowing enough time for it to react completely or perhaps not using enough of a chemical to completely react with the other....
