Piper Gunderson June 9,2011 Chemistry Lab #2: Density of Salts Make-Up Salts surround us in everyday life and their properties are something that we simply take for granted or grow accustomed to. For example, that very salty water that you experience in the ocean is much denser than the tap water that comes through you kitchen Sink. It is properties like that, that help to make the world evolve and maintain the life that inhabits it. Of three solutions, Magnesium Chloride, Copper Chloride, and Potassium Chloride, Copper Chloride has the highest recorded density at 3.386 g/ cm 3. (1) The density of Magnesium Chloride varies depending on the type that is used. Pure Magnesium Chloride, for example, has a density of 2.32 g/cm 3 while magnesium chloride hexahydrate is approximately 1.569 g/cm 3 . (2) Potassium Chloride, on the other hand, has a density of 1.984 g/cm 3 . (3) 1 In order to find the densities of these salt solutions, you have to take the weight of the beaker before any water is added. By doing this the weight of the beaker will not be
