What is the general formula for the decomposition of a hydrate?
What do you think it is? If you know the general formula for a hydrate, then it should be obvious.
We never really went over hydrates, but since some vocab words were thrown at me, the decomp would just be an anhydrous solid and water.
Exactly. So, if the fomula for the hydate is AB.xH2O (Ex: CuSO4.5H2O), then it will decompose to form...?
As a point of interest, it's also possible for partial decomposition to take place.
