The solubility of Potassium Nitrate lab report.
The Solubility of Potassium Nitrate
The aim of this experiment is to find out by how much the solubility of potassium nitrate into distilled water increases when the solution is heated, and if yes, by how much.
According to data on the internet, 3.75 × 10¹ moles of potassium nitrate dissolve in 100g of water. I believe this information may be correct. I also believe that as the solute is absorbing outside heat, the energy is increased causing it to dissolve both faster, with more potassium nitrate.
25g Potassium nitrate
1) Weigh out 25g Potassium Nitrate into a boiling tube.
2) Add 10ml water
3) Heat solution over bunsen until potassium nitrate dissolves, moving the tube in and out of the flame so it doesn't boil over.
4) Allow to cool and record temperature at which crystals appear
5) Add 5ml of water and repeat steps 3) and 4)
6) Repeat step 5) until you have 30ml of water in the boiling tube
7) Transform data so it is expressed as a mass of potassium nitrate per 100g of water.
Water (ml)Temp at which crystals appear ( C)Potassium Nitrate (g) per 100g of water
Mass of potassium nitrate dissolved at 40 : 64g
Mass of potassium nitrate dissolved at 80 : 169g
Mass obtained as crystals when solution cooled from 80 to 25 : 134g or 79.3%
Two graphs: one from the internet, one made according to our results.
From the results we can see that the solubility of potassium nitrate is increased as the temperature is increased. The relationship is nonlinear, which means it doesn't form a straight line when plotted on a graph. Now, there are three...
