STEPS ON CALCULATING DEHYDRATION OF CRYSTALS

asked by EMMANUEL
  1. Surely you aren't serious.
    1. Weigh the sample.
    2. Heat the sample at whatever temperature to drive off the water until constant weight is obtained.
    3. Weigh the dehydrated sample.
    4. The difference is weight is the weight of the H2O released.
