Formula of a Hydrate Lab Report Purpose: The purpose of this lab was to find the empirical formula of a hydrate by the heating of a hydrate. Procedure: First, a crucible and crucible cover were placed on a pipestem triangle with clean crucible tongs. The crucible cover was placed slightly askew, having left only a small opening for any gases to escape. The empty crucible and cover were then preheated over high heat for 3 minutes. The crucible tongs were then used to remove the crucible and cover from the pipestem triangle, and placed on a ceramic tile. The crucible and cover were cooled for 5 minutes. After the crucible was cooled, the mass of the crucible and cover was determined with a balance. The mass was recorded in the data table. The mass was rounded to the nearest 0.01g. Approximately 3g of fine copper sulfate crystals were added to the crucible with a small spatula. The mass of the covered crucible and crystals was determined with a balance. The mass of the covered crucible and crystals was then recorded in the data table. The mass was rounded to the nearest 0.01g. The covered crucible with the hydrate was then placed on the pipestem triangle with crucible tongs. The crucible cover was placed slightly askew, having left a small opening. The crucible was then heated on a high heat for 2 minutes. After the crucible had been heated, crucible tongs were used
