Separation of a Mixture 16 Oct. 08

  • Objectives: 1.
  • 2.
  • Techniques: 1.
  • 2.
  • Materials
    • (skip 5 lines)
  • Procedure: Observations:
  • Find the mass…
  • To separate a mixture of manganese dioxide and sodium chloride.
  • To determine the percent of each obtained after the separation, and the percent error.
  • manganese dioxide, MnO2, insoluble black powder (manganese (IV) oxide)
  • sodium chloride, NaCl, soluble white crystals
  • Filtration
  • Evaporation


(removes water from a sample)

Stirring rod


Weighing paper

Drying oven (removes water from a sample quickly)


Alcohol burner

Ring stand/ring

  • Find the mass of the 100 mL beaker on the electronic balance.
  • Mass 2 grams of NaCl and 1 gram of MnO2 on weighing paper, and record their initial masses. Mix them together in the beaker.
  • Add 20 mL distilled water to the NaCl and MnO2 mixture. Swirl gently to mix, until all the NaCl is dissolved.

Record a qualitative description.

How would you separate this mixture (and record the mass of each compound after separation)?

  • Beakers(2, 100 mL), electronic balance (1), distilled water, graduated cylinder (1, 100 mL)
  • NaCl (powder, 2g), MnO2 (powder, 1 g)
homework 1
Homework 1
  • Draw a cartoon of the SIX main steps required to separate this mixture,
  • and to find out the mass of each compound collected at the end.
  • Write a sentence to describe each of the six steps, under each box of the cartoon.
  • Due: Fri.

Goals: Separate the manganese dioxide from the NaCl.

  • Find the mass of each compound after the separation, and compare it to your initial masses.
  • Calculate your percent error.
  • Due Thursday (with your cartoon)
  • On a separate piece of paper:
  • Write the procedure for separating these two compounds (don’t worry about collecting the water)and calculating % obtained/%error.
  • Write a list of materials and equipment required (include how many of each).
a good procedure
A good procedure…
  • Very specific – list every detail even if you think it is obvious!
  • In the correct order
  • Give the name of each piece of equipment you use
  • Write when you will make observations or take a measurement
  • Describe how to do each calculation

If you do not turn in this assignment, you will not be allowed to participate in lab.

  • We will edit your procedures before going to lab.
  • Do your best…draw pictures if you have a hard time writing sentences.
  • Come see me for help!

Process of Separation




Residue – manganese dioxide


Reacts with HCl acid, turns moist KI paper blue


Solute – sodium chloride


Reacts with AgNO3 solution to form white precipitate

common challenges

Common Challenges

Add to your procedure to fix these problems!!

when filtering
When filtering
  • How will you keep salt water from being absorbed by your filter paper?
when evaporating
When evaporating
  • How will you know when all the water is evaporated?

When the salt looks dry, mass the dish + salt. Heat it a little longer, and mass it again. Repeat, until the difference in mass is less than 0.01 grams.

when finding final mass
When finding final mass
  • Scraping the NaCl from the evaporating dish and the MnO2 from the filter paper onto weighing paper will cause you to lose a LOT of mass. How can you avoid this?

Mass the filter paper and evaporating dish at the beginning. At the end, mass the filter paper + MnO2 and the evaporating dish + NaCl. Then, just subtract!!

  • The procedure MUST show how to find the final mass of NaCl and MnO2.
  • Also describe how to calculate % obtained (the percent of each at the end), and % error.
  • Write a final draft of your procedure in your lab notebook (in the left column).
  • Under “Materials,” list all the pieces of equipment and compounds, including how many/how much of each.
  • Due Thursday, 30 October, in lab
  • No procedure = no lab
