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?
