suppose you heat a hydrate too quickly and some of it was lost as it spattered out of the container. Explain how this would affect the calculated percent of mass and the chmical formula

    Loss of some of the sample due to spattering will result in a larger weight loss and that is translated to a larger amount of water. Therefore, the percent water will be too high. If the formula of a hydrate is written as AB.xH2O, then x will be larger than it should be.
