CM1021 AY 2014-15 semester 1 The reported value is -601. hydrated magnesium ions are formed [Mg(H2O)n2+]. When magnesium or magnesium oxide dissolves in aqueous hydrochloric acid. . why can we disregard enthalpy changes due to hydration? Discuss any difficulties that you experienced and any changes that you had to make to the experimental procedure.7 kJmol-1. suggests reasons for the source of the error. If your experimental value is different. In this experiment.
