1. Calculate and record the following for the experiment performed with 20g KClO3:

(a) mass of the crucible with manganese(IV) dioxide (in grams): 53.300g
(b) mass of the crucible after potassium chlorate has been added (in grams): 73.300g
(c) mass of the crucible after heating (in grams): 21.00 degrees C
(d) mass of potassium chloride (in grams): 8.64
(e) mass of oxygen in sample of potassium chlorate (in grams): 65.367g
(f) mass percent of oxygen in potassium chlorate:

2. Calculate a theoretical mass percent of oxygen in KClO3 according to:

theoretical mass percent of oxygen = (mass of 3 oxygen atoms) / (mass of KClO3)

3. Calculate the percent error in the experiment using the experimental and theoretical values of the mass percent of oxygen. The percent error is defined as:

|(experimental value) - (theoretical value)| / theoretical value * 100%

4. How well does your experimental result match the theoretical value? What sources of error may explain the discrepancy?

(b) mass of the crucible after potassium chlorate has been added (in grams): 73.300g

(c) mass of the crucible after heating (in grams):
If the mass of potassium chloride is 8.64 g and the mass of crucible is 53.500 g, then, the mass of crucible after heating (that's including potassium chloride) should be 62.14 g (from adding 8.64 g and 53.500 g)

(d) mass of potassium chloride (in grams): 8.64

(e) mass of oxygen ...

Solution Summary

This solution deals with calculating results for an experiment that involves 20 grams of KClO3. This solution also answers why discrepancies might exist in the calculations.

Which 3 by 3 symmetric matrices A produce following functions f = X^T A X ?
Why is the first matrix positive definite but not the second one?
a) f = 2 (X1^2 + X2^2 + X3^2 - X1X2 - X2X3)
b) f = 2 (X1^2 + X2^2 + X3^2 - X1X2 - X1X3 - X2X3)

Please help with the following problem.
I need to test the hypothesis (? = 0.05) that the population proportions of red and brown are equal (pred = pbrown). You are testing if their proportions are equal to one another, NOT if they are equal to one another AND equal to 13%. NOTE: These are NOT independent samples, but we w

Please provide assistance in getting this z-test done. The chapter has to do with testing the difference between two means, two proportions, and two variances.
