Unformatted text preview: This lab was fairly easy. It was a three-day part lab. All we really had to do was mass objects and observe. However, there were a few sources of error. 1) While decanting the silver, we lost some of the silver. A possible solution to this would be to have a small filter that would only allow the water to pour out. 2) Another possible error could have been massing it. The electronic device itself may not always be the most reliable. A possible solution to this would be to use a triple beam balance and mass it that way. 3) A third source of error could be the calculations. During this lab, we always rounded to the tenths place, and as you keep rounding, you are getting less and less exact with the most accurate answer. A solution to this would be to not round. CONCLUSION In this lab, I learned to observe the reaction of a weighed quantity of copper wire with a solution of silver nitrate. I figured out the moles of silver and copper and compared them to each other....
