Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Kenji on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 9:36pm.

If performing a gravimetric sulfate experiment and you use ordinary filter paper instead of ashless filter paper, would results be too high or too low?

If I'm trying to calculate percentage of sulfate in a sample and I used ordinary filter paper, the paper will turn to ash when ignited and be in addition to the precipitate. So wouldn't that make the % sulfate lower?
