When 6.724 g of one of the hydrates of sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) was heated to drive off its water of hydration, the residue of anhydrous sodium sulfate has a mass of 2.964 g. What is the value of x in the formula for the hydrate, Na2SO4•xH2O?

  1. 6.724g hydrate
    -2.964g anhdrous Na2SO4
    3.760g H2O driven off.

    Convert to mols.
    3.760/18 = ? mols H2O
    2.964/molar mass Na2SO4= ?

    Now find the ratio of the water to 1.00 mol Na2SO4.
