Page 2 of 10 Introduction The purpose of the laboratory experiment is to identify the composition of the liquid solution containing unknown amounts of two ionic salts. Also, to udestand the principle of the spectrophotometer and the refractometer and to be able to analyze calibration curves. The ionic salts used in the experiment are sodium nitrate (NaNO 3 ) and cupric sulfate (CuSO 4 ). To indentify the concentration of CuSO 4 and NaNO3 in a liquid solution a spectrophotometer is used to find the absorbance of solutions with different concentrations of CuSO 4 . Using the data from the spectrometer a standard calibration curve will be plotted from the different concentrations and the index of refraction measured by the refractometer.

Maximum possible (soluble) concentration of NaNO 3 in mol/L solution : Assumption: ideal solution MW of NaNO 3 : 84.99 g/mol Solubility of NaNO 3 = 92.1g/ 100cm 3 H2O Since 100 cm 2 = 0.1 L Solubility of NaNO 3 = 92.1 g/0.1L= 921 g/ L Concentration of NaNO 3 (mol/L) = (921 g/L)*(1 mol/ 84.99g) = 921 mol/84.99L [NaNO 3 ]= 10.84mol/L B. Maximum possible(soluble) concentration of CuSO 4 in mol/L solution : Assumption: ideal solution MW of CuSO 4 : 249,68 g/mol To find the solubility of CuSO 4 at 25°C we have to do an interpolation:

Concentration = 0.25 mol/ L : MW of CuSO4.5 H2O: 249,68 g/mol [CuSO 4 ]= number of mole of CuSO
