Discussion:
Week #1:
The percent yield of Potassium Ferric Oxalate from the product was 34.4 %. This number
coming from the theoretical yield which is 6.28 grams of Potassium Ferric Oxalate however the
actual yield from the experiment was 2.16 grams of Potassium Ferric Oxalate. The magnitude of
the percent yield is low, because only 34.4% was obtain. More product could have been obtained
if all measurement were more exact such as instead of having 5.03 grams of Ammonium Iron (ii)
Sulfate (Fe(NH

O, having 5.00 grams exactly. Along with all the other
measurements, these little differences could have an effect on the outcome of the product.
However, with that also comes the time constraint, so if an unlimited amount of time was given
for the procedure than the experiment could be more precise and might have a greater accuracy
for the product.
The observations I made during the synthesis of the complex that indicated that a reaction
was occurring where the changes in colors and states. Such as when adding the Oxalic Acid
(H2C2O4) to the solution it would turn yellow. Than when adding heat to the solution the
