Synthesis Problem (Slide # 74)

11. In 1986, Bednorz and Muller succeeded in making the first of a
series of chemical compounds that were superconducting at
relatively high temperatures. This first compound was La2CuO4
which superconducts at 35K. In their initial experiments, Bednorz
and Muller made only a few mg of this material. How many La
atoms are present in 3.56 mg of La2CuO4?

Group Activity

12. Within a year after Bednorz and Muller’s initial discovery of high
temperature superconductors, Wu and Chu had discovered a new
compound, YBa Cu O , that began to superconduct at 100 K. If we

wished to make 1.00 pound of YBa Cu O , how many grams of
2 3 7
yttrium must we buy?
