This video demonstrates the steps that are to be taken for the experimental determination of the empirical formula for magnesium oxide.
In order to experimentally determine the percentage composition and empirical formula of magnesium oxide, a piece of magnesium is heated strongly to react with the oxygen in the air the reaction of magnesium with oxygen occurs relatively slowly, so a bunsen burner will be used to enable the reaction to take place more quickly. In both the initial mass of magnesium and the final mass of the magnesium oxide are measured, the increase in mass must correspond to the mass of the oxygen that combined with magnesium the percent composition and empirical formula of magnesium oxide can then be calculated, based on the combining ratios of magnesium and oxygen in the reaction. Empirical formula of magnesium oxide the purpose of this experiment is to determine the empirical formula of a mass of magnesium oxide 3 mass of oxygen that. Since the product of your reaction should be pure magnesium oxide (containing magnesium and oxygen), and the initial material taken was pure elemental magnesium, the mass of oxygen reacted should just be the difference in these two masses.
