Pre-Lab Questions: 1.) 28.198 g (crucible, lid, unknown) – 26.384 g (crucible, lid) = 1.814 g (unknown sample) 28.030 g – (crucible, lid, residue) – 26.384 g (crucible, lid) = 1.646 g (residue) 1.646 / 1.814 x 100% = 90.7 % BaCl 2 in unknown sample. 2.)

Reference: Bishop, Carl B., Bishop, Muriel B. and Whitten, Kenneth W. Standard and Microscale Experiments to accompany General Chemistry with Qualitative Analysis , 5 th ed.
Florida: Saunders College Publishing, 1996. Balanced Chemical Reactions: BaCl 2 ● 2H 2 O (s) → BaCl 2 (s) + 2H 2 O (g) Hazards and Safety Issues: 1. Keep the Bunsen burner away from skin and flammable objects 2. Be careful to NOT DROP the crucible top, it will easily break. 3. After crucible is heated, allow for adequate cooling time. Place on a wire gauze because a drastic heat change will cause the crucible to shatter. Materials: Glassware Crucible and cover Hardware Crucible tongs Bunsen burner Bunsen burner stand Clay triangle Heat resistant gloves Reagents Sample of BaCl 2 ● 2H 2 O Other substance
