  • Explain The Empirical Formula Of Magnesium Oxide

    Abstract: In this lab our main objective is to find the empirical formula of MgO, magnesium oxide. To do this first we have to make sure when we burn Mg in the crucible and it reacts to with O. This lab experiment Mg is complicated by another factor. Mg is so reactive that it reacts with N in the air so some of the Mg which is suppose to react with O will react will N instead. This obstacle can be overcome by simply adding water to the Mg3N2 to yield MgOH2 and NH3. This will undo the reaction so O can react with Mg to make MgO and then we can get the empirical formula of MgO. Introduction: The correct formula for magnesium oxide is MgO which is a 1.0 to 1.0 ratio. Meaning for every 1 mol of magnesium, Mg, there one mol of O, oxygen. However,…

  • Magnesium Oxide Lab Report

    The burning of magnesium in open air causes a chemical reaction that forms the compound, magnesium oxide. This reaction occurs due to the heat that provides energy to activate the reaction. A blinding white flame will burn as the reaction occurs. In this lab, magnesium is burned in an open crucible over a Bunsen burner several times until the magnesium ceases to burn. This process allows for the magnesium to completely react with the oxygen found in the open air, forming the chemical compound…

  • Carbon Dioxide In Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    The removal of carbon dioxide in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) has been an important topic of research due to the increasing amount of recirculating aquaculture systems being employed in the aquaculture industry. Carbon dioxide, as well as ammonia, are excreted by the fish and can be present in high quantities. Elevated levels of CO2 accumulation within the recirculating water could have toxic effects on fish. The maximum level of CO2 and ammonia that can be present in the tanks…

  • Soil Characterisation Essay

    A detailed description of soil locations, textures and physio-chemical properties can be found in Sections 2.3.1(page 41) and 3.3.1(page 56). We selected four types of soils out of seven types of soils, namely MGA, KBA, TAA and DUA. Key soil characterisation of these four soils is summarised in Table 4.2. The reason why these four types of soils were chosen for this chapter was that they had distinct soil parameters in terms of total organic carbon (TOC), Fe oxide, Al oxide, pH which have been…

  • Errors In Avogadro's Law

    manipulated to find the volume and divide that volume by moles of magnesium. Being close to the theoretical value, 22.4L, it verifies that one mole of all gases occupy 22.4L in any container under standard temperature and pressure. This information could be valuable in many ways. For example, it proves Avogadro’s Law which states that at a standard temperature and pressure, one mole of any gas will occupy the same value which is 22.4L. Like a puzzle piece, once discovered, it…

  • Chemical Change Lab Report

    A. Heating Magnesium: This station consisted of magnesium, a slim, flexible, silver metal and a Bunsen burner. We used crucible tongs to hold the magnesium over the Bunsen burner until it began to ignite. When it first ignited, sparks were seen and the flame emitted a bright, white light. The flame spread across the magnesium and eventually turned it into a white, ashy substance. The combination of fire and magnesium caused a chemical change. This is evident as there were many signs of a…

  • Mechanochemical Methods In Chemistry

    3.2 Mechanochemical synthesis The mechanochemical method was employed to synthesis CP and MgCP where calcium hydroxide (CaOH2), phosphoric acid (H3PO4) and magnesium hydroxide (MgOH2) were used as precursors. Table 3.1 shows the parameter used by varying the weight percentages (wt. %) of Mg. Table 3.1: The weight percentages ratio for magnesium doped calcium phosphate Samples Parameter Calcium Hydroxide Ca(OH)2 (g) Phosphoric Acid H2PH03 (g) Magnesium Hydroxide Mg(OH)2 (g) Undoped CP…

  • Emperical Formula Lab Report

    Introduction The purpose of this lab is to find the emperical formula of a compound made of magnesium and oxygen. We took a strip of magnesium and combusted it to figure out how much of the strip was magnesium by weighing the remaining ashes. The weight that wasn’t transferred to ashes was burnt off in the smoke as oxygen. To find the emperical formula, you had to take the average mass of both magnesium and oxygen and divide by the average mass to get the amount of mols in the compound.…
