When an unknown substance weighing 2.386g is heated for 5 minutes and cooled to room temperature, it's new weight is 3.183g. No smoke rose for the sample while it was heated and it turned from white to a slight yellow. Were the students performing this experiment successful at separating components of the mixture? Why/why not?
