In this lab we used a series of calculations to determine the molecular formula of the Zinc Iodide. A couple of basic equations used are: Atomic weight= (mass of atoms in grams/moles of atoms) Molecular weight= (mass of molecules in grams/moles of molecules). In order to calculate the moles of Iodine atoms reacted from the weight of Iodine used, we converted the 0.498g of Iodine we used into moles which equals 0.0078 mols used. To calculate the weight of Zinc that reacted, we simply subtracted the ending amount (0.321g) from the beginning amount(0.502g) to show that 0.181g of Zinc reacted Using the results from the previous calculation, we converted the remaining weight into moles of Zinc to show that 0.0028 moles of zinc reacted. We then expressed the moles of Zinc and Iodine as a ratio:
