Product Details

The quantitative stoichiometric relationships governing mass and amount will be studied in this demonstration using the combustion reaction of magnesium metal.  Magnesium is reacted with oxygen from the air in a crucible, and the mass before and after the oxidation is measured.  The resulting masses are used to calculate the experimental empirical formula of magnesium oxide, which is then compared to the theoretical empirical formula.  A crucible and Bunsen burner will be used to heat magnesium metal to burning.  This lab illustrates the (i) law of conservation of mass and (ii) law of constant composition.

Kit includes:

1 Roll  Magnesium Metal, Ribbon UN1869

Each bottle of our reagents come standard with an MSDS sheet included. If you require a copy of this prior to purchase, please contact us.
