Homework Help: chem

The mass of the CuSO4 x 5H2O sample is 1.664 g. The mass of the recovered copper is 1.198 g.

1. Compute the experimental percent by mass of copper in the sample:
1.1664/1.998x 100=71.81%


2. Calculate the percent copper in pure copper sulfate pentahydrate(this is the theoretical percent copper). One mole of copper has a mass of 63.55 g, and by addition, one mole of CuSO4 x 5H2O has a mass of 249.5 g:

63.55/249.5x100= 25.47%

3. In order to calculate the error of the % Cu and the percent error of the % Cu I know I am suppose to use 1.198 as the experimental value, but I am not sure what to use for the true value.
