Results and Discussion: An unknown salt was mixed with sulfamic acid to release nitrogen gas. The resulting data was plugged into the PV=nRT to find out the identity of the salt. The procedure displaced 230ml of water, which is equivalent to the volume of nitrogen gas produced. P = 756.2mmHg/760; P = .995atm V= 230ml; V = .23 L T = 20 oC ; T = 293.15 oK R = .082057 n = unknown PV=nRT .995atm (.23 L) = n(.082057)(293.15 oK ) n = .009513 mol of nitrogen

Unformatted text preview: The molar mass of the unknown metal M was determined by using molar ratios and the masses of the two other elements (oxygen and nitrogen) in the compound. .009513 mol of Nitrogen = .009513 mol of MNO 2 .009513 x .816g MNO 2 = 90.5g MNO 2 The molar weights of oxygen and nitrogen were subtracted. 90.5g MNO 2 – 14g N – 32g O = 44.5g M 44.5g = element Scandium Conclusion: The unknown metal was identified as Scandium 2...

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
