24Sept2013 Chem Lab # 7

redo of lab 6.3

We weighed out 125 grams of copper sulfate added 75ml of warm water to the copper sulfate and slowly boiled it on a hot plate. Once the copper sulfate had dissolved we funneled it through into a beaker and put in into an ice bath. After washing it with acetone we filtered it a second time we put it aside to dry. We saved the leftover solution for the next part of the lab.

For the second part of the lab we took 25 grams of washing soda and mixed it with 50 ml of warm water. We mixed the washing soda solution with the leftover copper sulfate solution and filtered it saving the copper carbonate.
