Students will measure the production of CuCO3 (s) + Na2SO4 (aq) from the reaction of CuSO4 (aq) + Na2CO3 (aq).
This lab requires excellent lab skills to achieve correct results that are probably beyond all but your most capable students. Your results will vary greatly and it is important to post the student results and discuss the validity of the class findings. Keeping a tally of all your classes will be a way to collect additional data.
Students should understand that the reactants in a reaction do not all form product and that the equilibrium of the reaction depends on a number of factors. This reaction forms a pasty blue solid and a clear filtrate that dries to a white solid.
