The lab was to include a purpose, procedure, data/observations, all reactions and side reactions written out with qualitative data beneath each product and reactant except H20, and a summary.The purpose of this experiment is to observe the qualitative aspects of a series of reactions involving copper.Procedure1.Measure about 1g of solid copper.2.Place Cu in Erlenmeyer flask and place flask underfume hood.3.Add dropwise 15M HNO3 until solid copper is completely reacted.4.Place flask in water bath.5.Add 4M NaOH slowly until no more solid forms.6.Mix contents by slowly swirling flask.7.Place flask back in water bath, heat to boiling, and stir.8.Heat until separation of solid and solution.9.Cool flask and allow contents to ...view middle of the document...

We begin with copper as a pure solid with an orange/bronze color. Then, it becomes part of a clear, blue solution when HNO3 is added. Next, we see it as a solid, blue precipitate with the addition of NaOH. Then, it becomes a black crystalline solid when heated. Next, a blue/green solution in formed when HCl is added. And finally, when solid aluminum is added it reverts back to pure solid copper. If we had enough time for complete reactions to occur, the mass of copper at the end should have been the same as the mass of copper we started with.Sorry if its a little confusing, copy and paste didn't work out so well. I tried to fix it the best I could.CorrectionsFor some reason I can't change this.In reaction 2, clear,colorless liquid should be under NaOHIn reaction 5, silver solid should be under 2AlIn reaction 6, colorless gas should be under 3H2

The Chemistry of Powder and Explosives

2245 words - 9 pages Chemistry Of Powder And Explosives Introduction An explosive can be defined as a chemical compound that can be ignited by friction, heat, shock or impact when detonated to release rapid heat and pressurised gas. The energy released by the gases causes rock displacement, rock fragmentation, ground vibration and massive air blast. Thexplosivs theory states that detonation usually produces a high-velocity vibration and shock waves which in turn

Matters exist in three physical states viz. solid, liquid and gas. 3. In solids, these particles are held very close to each other in an orderly fashion and there is not much freedom of movement. In liquids, the particles are close to each other but they can move around. However, in gases, the

521 words - 3 pages our Lab Reports. Conclusion: In conclusion I have noticed that without cells we wouldn’t be able to function or neither without cell theory because we would not know how to treat our body or our cells. I also learned the difference between the Animal Cell and the Plant Cell. There aren’t many differences, but there are a few here and there. I learned the Organelles of both the Animal Cell and Plant Cell even more than I knew them from before. I feel that knowing about and understanding Cell Theory and all the cell organelles is very important because you will know how to treat your body and live a healthy life.
