rate of ltration We cannot pour the liquid into the center of the lter paper because it will break First ltration l removed oxidized compounds and ne carbon particles Without stirring Second ltration

precipitation reaction Ba2 aq 20H39aq 2Haq SO4239aq l BaSO4s 2H20 Procedure for conductimetric add 0100 M H2504 slowly to BaOH2 and measure conductivity with conductivity probe Units of conductivity microseism per cm uScm The conductivity graph is V shaped conductivityvolume The end point is where not more titrant should be added Requirements for gravimetric analysis to work 1 The compound formed must be pure and of known stoichiometry 2 The precipitation reaction must be virtually complete that is the percent yield of the solid product should be 999 or better 3 The precipitation reagent should be speci c for the sample being determined interference by other types of compounds forming precipitates should be minimal 4 The solid that is precipitated should be in the form of reasonably large wellformed crystals This is necessary so that the precipitate can be easily ltered and the compound will have the highest possible purity 5 The molecular weight of the precipitated solid should be high enough that a reasonable weight of precipitate is generated when the weight percent of substance being determined is low in the unknown sample Flocculate cause to aggregate into a mass by heating the solution of precipitated barium sulfate just to boil Strontium mercury l and lead ll could interfere and co precipitate Common ions don t interfere 0 Caution Sulfuric acid is a strong acid The barium hydroxide solution is caustic avoid spilling Crucible in the oven in order to dry the precipitate if we don t put it in the oven a higher content of sulfate will be present CALCULATIONS 1 Given the concentration of sulfuric acid this will be equal to the concentration of barium hydroxide at the equivalence point Conductimetric titration 2 Gravimetric Determination you get the moles of barium sulfate from the mass of the precipitate mass crucible and precipitate mass crucible mW of barium sulfate Remembering that this number of moles is equal to the moles of barium hydroxide at the equivalence point 3 Then use the formula M1 V1 M2 V2 to calculate the concentration of barium hydroxide Lab 5 Types of reactions Visual indicators precipitation color change bubbles Nonvisual

dense than ice because of the intermolecular arrange in the water the molecules are more close to each other which makes it more dense rather the ice molecules have more space between them Impurities
