Homework Help: AP Chemistry

Posted by T on Monday, May 18, 2009 at 11:37pm.

I need help with figuring out an appropriate way to do this sort of lab: how to determine an unknown compound.

With this one however, the teacher just gave us a white powdered compound - and asks us to figure out how to identify it using ANY lab procedures.

He gave hints that the powder DOES NOT react with water and it can be a SALT or just molecules.

I thought of doing a flame test, qualitative, finding molar mass, etc... but I don't know what to do specifically. Help?

Thank you!
