Students will be able to
- define the volatilization method in gravimetric analysis,
- describe the experimental procedure involved in volatilization gravimetry,
- connect the loss of mass of a hydrated compound with the loss of water molecules from the compound,
- calculate the percentage of water of crystallization in a hydrated compound,
- calculate the stoichiometry of a hydrated crystal based on the hydrated and dehydrated masses of a sample.
