This would change the ratio of moles of water to moles of MgSO4.2. If the anhydrous MgSO4 pops out of the beaker, it leads to overestimation of average number of watermolecules.This is because you are missing some amount of MgSO4 and calculated number of moles of MgSO4 will be less than actual value.3. Decomposition would have started to take place. The mass after heating would have been lighter as
