write the reaction for the dehydration of CuSO4 . XH20?

  • chemistry -

    CuSO4.5H2O ==> CuSO4 + 5H2O

  • chemistry -

    Why is it 5 H2O?

  • chemistry -

    You had X. The USUAL amount of water of crystallization in CuSO4 is 5 mols H2O so I used that number. If you rather I had used X, then
    CuSO4.XH2O ==> CuSO4 + XH2O
