Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Kenneth on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 5:35pm.

I am enrolled in analytical chemistry after a 4 year break from any chemistry. I was recently given a problem set and I need some help on the following:

A 0.899g sample containing epsom salt, MgSO4 & 7 H2O, and other non-hydrated materials was dehydrated completely in a stream of hot, dry nitrogen. The resulting air stream was passed through a tube containing the desiccant magnesium perchlorate. The original weight of the desiccant tube was 61.997g and, after the determination, the tube weighed 62.318g. What is the % epsom salt in the sample.

I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
