WATER OF HYDRATION
WATER OF HYDRATION Objective: To determine experimentally the water of hydration for the hydrate Borax. Theory: In this experiment, we examined and found the water of hydration of the hydrate borax. Borax is derived from the element Boron, which is a metalloid chemical element with properties between those of carbon and aluminum(95CI). Boron is relatively rare, constituting only 3 PPM of the Earth’s crust(95CI). It is most commonly found in the borate minerals borax, and kernite(95CI). Borax is
