Unformatted text preview: inutes the volume of the cobalt
solution should be reduced to one quarter of the original volume (you may want to
use another casserole with the targeted volume of water for comparison). As the
volume of solution in the casserole is reduced, a crust of crystals (like a thin slurry)
will begin to form on the surface of the liquid. Do not allow the solution to
completely evaporate from the casserole. Thus, you may have to add a few mL of
deionized water to avoid this, but only add a minimum. You may also need to add
small amounts of water to the beaker in order to maintain this volume of water while
Question E: Write a balanced chemical equation for this process. The product is
6. Carefully remove the casserole and place it in an ice bath. Let the casserole cool for 5
minutes and then add 4 mL of 95% ethanol to force more of the water soluble product
to crystallize. It is important here that you allow the casserole to cool before rinsing
your product with the 95% ethanol. Allow 5 more minutes for the product to fully
