Given a 10.0g sample of MgCO3*5H2O, what weight of anhydrous magnesium carbonate can be obtained after driving off the water?

The GFM of the sample is 174.3amu. Now.. how do I go about finding the weight of the magnesium carbonate?

  • Chemistry -

    magnesium carbonate consist of one atom of Mg,one atom of c,three atoms of O.SO weight of magnesium carbonate is
    24 + 12 + (3*16)
    =24 +12+ 48
    =84
