Atomic Mass Experiment

  • To determine the relative atomic mass of magnesium and calcium from the resulting gas volume,
  • To establish the proportionality between the volume and substance amount,
  • To study the stoichiometry of the reaction and the atomic mass concept.




In this experiment, we are going to study the atomic mass. The atomic mass of an element is the average of the isotopic masses. The relative atomic mass makes it possible to weigh equivalent numbers of particles of various atoms and compare with the atomic mass of carbon-12. As a result, the relative atomic masses of different metals will be determined by chemical reaction with the acid.
