Suppose that you did not completely convert the hydrate to dehydrate compound. Explain how would this affect the calculated percent by mass of water in a compound.

asked by mitchel
  1. %H2O = (mass H2O/total mass)*100 = ?
    If all of the H2O is not driven out, then mass H2O is too small. How will a smaller numerator affect the calculated number?
