The Solubility Curve of KNO3 DATA, CALCULATIONS AND GRAPHS Part I: Fractional Crystallization of KNO3 with (NH4)2Fe(SO4)2.6H2O Impurity Does the absorbance exceed the desired range (0 to 2.0 A)? _____yes_______ If so, what dilution factor did you use in order to get the absorbance in the desired range? ____1:10_________ Plot a graph of percent of (NH4)2Fe(SO4)2.6H2O vs.number of crystallization steps (0,1,2) and place it here. Cover this instruction box so that your graph is an appropriate size. Be sure to include a title, axis labels, and use the chart type that connects the data points. Plot a graph of percent of KNO3 recovered vs. the number of crystallization steps and place it here. Cover this instruction box so your graph is appropriately sized. Your graph should have three points with the first point being 100%. Be sure to include a title, axis labels, and use the chart type that connects the data points. II. Determining the Solubility Curve of KNO3 Results and Discussion 1. Do your results indicate that fractional crystallization works? Why or why not? The results we obtained from this experiment do support the method of fractional crystallization as a means to isolate pure KNO3. Our impurity percentages decreased first from 27.92 to 1.423, and then from 1.423 to 0.285 at our final crystallization. This inherently demonstrates the efficiency of fractional crystallization to isolate impurities from solutions. 2. What is the disadvantage of fractional crystallization? The dissadvantage of fraction crystallization is that in each crystallization the percent of the final product will undoubtedly decrease. This is because not every KNO3 molecule will crystallize, therefore losing some of the product. In addition, the final product will not be completely pure because a small amount of impurity will enter into the crystals. Lastly, fractional crystallization takes a lot of time to get only a relatively small final product. 3. The Handbook of Chemistry and Physics list the enthalpy of solution of KNO3 as 34.89 kJ/mole. How does your value compare?

### What students are saying

• 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.
