Laboratory
experiments were
conducted to
determine the
amount of water in
samples of a
hydrate of
magnesium sulfate.
The hydrate was
heated gently. The
anhydrous salt
remained after the
water was
evaporated from
the samle. The
percentage of
water in the
sampleis 51.14%.
What is the
formula for the
hydrate?
magnesium sulfate, 51.14% MgSO4 ⋅ x H2O
