Title: PowerPoint Presentation Empirical Formula

1
Determining the Empirical Formula of Copper
Chloride
Purpose of the Experiment Determine the
empirical formula of a compound containing only
copper and chlorine
2
Molar Mass or Molecular Weight
The molecular weight is the mass, in grams, of
one mole of a compound.
H2O MWt 18.0148 g/mol AlCl3 MWt 133.341
g/mol

Percentage Composition
The percentage composition is the percent of a
compounds mass that results from each of its
constituent elements.

Empirical Formula
The empirical formula is the simplest
whole- number ratio of the atoms in a compound.
Examples benzene, CH phosphorus pentoxide,
P2O5
Molecular Formula
The molecular formula is the simplest
whole- number ratio of the atoms in a single
molecule of a compound.
Examples benzene, C6H6 phosphorus pentoxide,
P4O10

Determination of the Empirical Formula
A white compound has been analyzed and found to
contain 43.6 wt. phosphorous and 56.4 wt.
oxygen. In a separate study it molecular weight
has been found to be 284 g/mol. What is the
empirical formula of this compound? Assume
exactly 100 g of the compound, then one has 43.6
g P 30.974 g/mol P 1.408 mol of P 56.4 g O
15.999 g/mol O 3.525 mol of O then the molar
ratios are 1.408 mol 1.408 mol 1.000 mol
P 3.525 mol 1.408 mol 2.503 mol O and the
empirical formula is P2O5.

Determining the Empirical Formula of Magnesium
Oxide The goal is to determine x and y in the
unknown magnesium oxide, MgxOy, by burning a
known mass of Mg in an excess of oxygen.

Copper is a transition metal with partially
filled d orbitals. A transition metal may
exhibit multiple oxidation states, such as 1,
2, or 3, oxidation states which are not easily
predicted by its position in the periodic
table. Because of the partially filled d
orbitals, a transition metal ion in aqueous
solution frequently is brightly colored, e.g.,
copper ions are blue in aqueous solution. Zinc
and aluminum are both stronger reducing agents
than copper, see their redox potentials, so
either will yield metallic copper from a solution
of a copper salt.
14
These potentials indicate the relative
thermodynamic tendency for the indicated
half-reaction to occur.

reaction Note Cu is below H (0.00 V ref) in
table, so It will not react with acids H(aq) to
form H2(g) Metals above H in the table will react

Wash with distilled water to remove aluminum
chloride
Transfer Cu residue to a pre-heated and
pre-weighed casserole
waste
CAUTION Do not overheat to avoid oxidation
heat
Determine the mass of Cu
waste
19
Procedure Notes
• Record all weights to 0.001g
• Weigh 25 ml of CuClx solution, use exact density
to calculate exact
• volume, then calculate the mass of CuClx
• Do not use metal forceps or spatulas
• Add Al foil until blue color is gone, allow
excess foil to dissolve
• Allow container to cool before weighing
• Speed up cooling by placing flask in front of
hood sash raised 4-6
• The second beaker does not have to be 150 mL
• A casserole will also work as an evaporating dish

20
Hazards
• 10 HCl is a corrosive strong acid
• CuClx solution-heavy metal, irritant
• Hot surfaces - hotplates, glassware

Waste
• Liquid waste Al3 solution and HCl
• Cu solids
