Silver Nitrate/Copper Reaction

  1. Jan 20, 2007 #1
    I am currently typing up my lab report for Chemistry but I've come across a question that I'm stuck on.

    2. Using the data obtained in the experiment and the equation you balanced above, calculate the mass of the copper you originally reacted. Show all steps clearly and include all units.

    Equation: Balanced

    Cu (s) + 2AgNO3 ---> 2Ag + Cu(NO3)2

    Copper (before) .93 (g)
    Silver (After) .17 (g)
    Filter Paper (Alone) 1.47 (g)
    Filter Paper and Silver 1.64 (g)

    If you are able to help me in any way let me know or contact me please.

    Next time, use the Homework & Coursework subforums.

    To help you, we need to first see some effort from you. What do you know about stoichiometry? If you translated the balanced equation into a regular English sentence, what would it look like?
