Hi, I just want someone to check my work and to explain further. We did the experiment about the spectral analysis

for CU2+(aq). Hope to receive answers in an hour or two.2D8F839D-5B76-4EF4-824A-83252DEB8695.jpegA74C67A8-4667-4CE7-A6FB-7C6B3B4040B0.jpeg


III. Data Analysis: Absorbance of Standard Cuz+(aq) Solutions
A Find a notes
In part L.D you speculated on what reaction occurs when copper (IT) sulfate reacts with potassium
hydroxide. How can the data on page 37 be used to confirm or deny this reaction? Below, show
calculations for your two reaction solutions. Do the data from other students fit this logic as well?
Briefly explain your reasoning using numbers.
The data collected can be used to confirm this reaction because the amount
of moles for the reactants side and products side are equivalent; therefore
the reaction is balanced and can be used to confirm this reaction.

The data from other students do fit this logic as well because their
balanced equation is the same as the balanced equation that I observed;
therefore, their data too can be used to confirmed this reaction.
V. Conclusions
Summarize the data for and against the chemical equation you wrote for copper (II) sulfate reacting with
potassium hydroxide. In particular, explain how spectroscopic data can be used as evidence for a given
reaction idea. Finally, do you feel your equation reflects what nature is really doing? Briefly explain.
In the chemical reaction between copper ( II ) sulfate and potassium
hydroxide, a double-replacement reaction occurred, thus producing copper ( II) hydroxide
and potassium sulfate. spectroscopic data can be used to identify pure substances
or compounds and the elements in them because each
natural element has a
characteristic light spectrum that assists in the identification of unknown substances.
My equation does reflect what nature is really doing because a
double replacement reaction occurred where
In this case, copper (II) sulfate became copper ( II) hydroxide and potassium
hydroxide became potassium sulfate.
