Unformatted text preview: to produce a chemical formula of the reaction we conducted. Surprisingly, when we rounded our ratios to the nearest integer, it matched the estimated molecular formula of the balanced equation. In our two trials, we used proportionally more HCl when more calcium was initially added to the water. So overall, our experiment was a success. The error that could have affected our experiment most was any unreacted calcium in the water before we started adding HCl to it in part two. Other than that, there wasn’t any substantial error apparent in our reactions....
