(Hint: What was the percent difference between the sum of the four separated components and the initial mass of the mixture of solids?) The percent difference was 14% over the initial mass. There are things that could have contributed to the overage, such as the filter not being 100% dry despite doing the experiment late last night. My scale could have also been off slightly too....

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.
