Purpose: The purpose of this lab was to devise and implement a procedure involving the ideal gas law and a reaction between sulfamic acid and an unknown nitrate salt, in order to determine the identity of the nitrate salt. An unknown nitrate salt, MNO 2 (M being either Li + , Na + , K + , or Rb + ), was reacted with sulfamic acid so that the N 2 gas produced would displace an amount of water into a beaker, allowing the volume of nitrogen to be measured. The reaction followed this equation: MNO 2 (aq) + HSO 3 NH 2 (aq) → MHSO 4 (aq) + H 2 O(l) + N 2 (g) Observations: As the flask was tipped and the reactants mixed, bubbles violently formed The nitrate salt in the test tube slowly disappeared Heat was produced The water level in the Florence flask slowly decreased Water entered the beaker fairly slowly and continuously throughout the reaction Data and Calculations: The following data was collected:
