Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Asuna on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 at 4:21am.

Consider a mixture of the two solids BaCl2.2H2O (FM 244.26) and KCl (FM 74.551). When the mixture is heated to 160C for 1 hour, the water of crystallization is drive off:

BaCl2.2H2O --> BaCl2(s) + 2H2O(g)

A sample originally weighing 1.7839g weighed 1.5623g after heating. Calculate the weight percent of Ba, K, and Cl in the original sample.

I calculated the mass of the water lost which is (1.7839g-1.5623g)= .2216 g. Trying to calculate %Ba first. The answer for Ba is 47.35%, but my calculations for getting this answer is not quite there.
