Chemistry lab copper -- silver nitrate reaction 1 introduction in this experiment you will mass solid silver nitrate (agno 3) and prepare a water solution of it you will also mass a piece of coiled copper wire, place it in the silver nitrate solution and observe the reaction by massing the copper wire at the end of the experiment, you will be. Copper / silver nitrate lab part deux write down your observations of the beaker and it's contents ring the bell - grabbing the hook part of the copper coil ring it like a hand bell in the beaker to knock the crystals off of the copper coil that is remaining rinse the remaining crystals from the. I was just trying to get you to think about your lab procedures is the copper wire actually the limiting reagent (how much silver nitrate did you use) was your filter paper dry was your product dry did you round your masses at all i noticed you only used xxxx decimal places when most scales go to the xxxxx place. Copper & silver nitrate lab – part i: partner: ya-sheng lin purpose: the purpose of this experiment was to study the reaction between copper and silver nitrate in order to practice using stoichiometry. Carefully add one drop of silver nitrate solution to the copper and refocus the microscope crystals of silver will start to grow from the edges of the copper enough silver is produced at this magnification to fill the view within minutes.
How it happens is that the silver nitrate is a liquid and a molecule of silver nitrate can find itself touching the copper surface when this happens the copper atom transfers two electrons to silver atoms, oxidizing the copper to a dissolved ion and reducing the silver ions to silver metal. Best answer: 1 copper was left over at the end of the reaction, so silver nitrate was the limiting reactant 2 copper was left over at the end of the reaction, copper was in excess. The reaction of copper wire with silver nitrate in aqueous solution shows chemistry in action silver crystals grow on the wire surface, and the color of copper(ii) ions appears in solution students measure the mass of the silver produced, determine the mass of copper wire that reacted and calculate the number of moles of each.
Copper in silver nitrate lab 1005 words | 5 pages copper in silver nitrate lab: making silver sabrina kate s carranza – chemistry hour 6 i purpose: the purpose of this experiment is to distinguish the relationships between reactants and products, in addition to expanding on concepts such as single displacement reactions, mole ratio values. A the silver nitrate is in solution and the metallic copper will dissolve to form copper nitrate as it does so, the silver in solution will be precipitated out as metallic silver that is, the silver in solution is exchanged for copper and the copper that is not in solution is substituted for. 8 add the silver nitrate solution just made to the clean beaker 9 place the stirring rod on top of the beaker of silver nitrate 10 suspend the copper coil in the silver nitrate solution by hanging the hook over a glass stirring rod. All students have to submit a handwritten lab report for the copper + silver nitrate labthis is as close to a formal lab report as you will submit this year this lab will inform the learning and behaviour outcomes in powerschool and aid in your understanding of stoichiometryon a single piece of paper. Silver nitrate is an inorganic compound with chemical formula agno 3 this compound is a versatile precursor to many other silver compounds, a typical reaction with silver nitrate is to suspend a rod of copper in a solution of silver nitrate and leave it for a few hours.
Silver nitrate (nitrate being the conjugate base of nitric acid which is how i’m relating this demo to lab this week) dissolves readily in water to give a solution of silver nitrate just about everything silver nitrate touches gets stained black. Purpose: the purpose of this experiment is to observe the single displacement reaction that occurs when copper reacts with silver nitrate there will indeed be a single displacement reaction because according to the activity series copper is above silver, therefore it is expected that copper reacts with nitrate. Chemical reactions of copper and percent yield key pre-lab (review questions) 1 give an example, other than the ones listed in this experiment, of redox and metathesis reactions. For honors chemistry i have to do a lab on copper and silver nitrate i don't understand the calculations/ computations here is the quantitative data table (based on my observations.
When zinc is added to copper (ii) sulfate, a single displacement reaction will take place, creating a solid, copper, and zinc sulfate when zinc is added to hydrochloric acid, hydrogen gas will be released a solid, zinc chloride, will be formed. The silver nitrate/copper reaction materials: # 16 copper wire 010 m silver nitrate solution large test tube balance 150 ml beaker watch glass wash bottle safety precautions: at the beginning of the next lab period, very carefully bring your beaker back to your lab bench record any observations. Mass of silver nitrate = 116 g mass of copper coil before reaction = 142 g mass of copper coil after reaction = 123 g wear safety goggles and lab apron silver nitrate will stain clothes and skin flush with water in the event of contact wear goggles, gloves, and an apron.
Chemistry unit 7 lab copper-silver nitrate reactionintroduction in this experiment, a solution of silver nitrate will react with copper wire silver metal will be produced careful measurements will enable you to determine the mole relationships between the reactants and productsprocedure1. Copper background information in this experiment, you will perform a reaction between copper and silver nitrate solution where silver metal should be produced.
Copper in silver nitrate lab: making silver sabrina kate s carranza – chemistry hour 6 i purpose: the purpose of this experiment is to distinguish the relationships between reactants and products, in addition to expanding on concepts such as single displacement reactions, mole ratio values, moles to mass, theoretical yields, limiting reactants, excess, stoichiometric relationships and. Also, silver nitrate is soluble in water, glycerine and hot alcohol it is most commonly used in photographic film, in silver plating, in gold raku pottery glazes, and as a laboratory reagent. After sulfuric acid was added to the beaker, copper was found as copper ions with a 2+ charge instead of the previous copper(ii) oxide form 6 in the final step of the lab when the copper precipitate was washed, zinc ions were removed. In this experiment copper wire will be placed in a solution of silver nitrate this single replacement reaction will produce a blue solution of copper(ii) nitrate and solid silver by weighing the reactants before the reaction, the mass of silver produced can be predicted.
