EXPERIMENT 5: DETERMINATION OF NICKEL BY GRAVIMETRIC ANALYSIS

Name: CHAN SIEW LING Student ID: 0903483 Group members: 1. CHONG BOON RUI 2. KHEW POOI LEE 3. YOW CHAN HOU

Title Objective

: Determination Of nickel By Gravimetric Analysis : To determine the weight percent of nickel by gravimetric analysis.

Result & Calculation: Mass Empty beaker Beaker + NiSO4(NH4)2SO46H2O NiSO4(NH4)2SO46H2O Empty sintered glass crucible Sintered glass 1st reading crucible + Ni 2nd reading complex Average Ni complex Two ± decimal balance(g) 104.93 105.27 0.34 52.16 52.39 52.40 52.40 0.24 Analytical balance(g) 105.0906 105.4349 0.3443 52.2405 52.4758 52.4756 52.4757 0.2352

(Table 6.1 Gravimetric determination of Ni complex in NiSO4 (NH4)2SO46H2O)

Weight percent !

weight of Ni complex v 100% weight of NiSO4(NH4)2SO46H2O 0.2352 ! v 100% 0.3443 ! 68.31%

Conclusion

: The weight percent of nickel in nickel ammonium sulphate is 68.31%
