[Iron filing + Copper(II) Sulfate]

The purpose of this lab is to determine whether the product of the reaction will be Iron(II)
Sulfate or Iron(III) Sulfate.

Write the equation for the single displacement of Iron with Copper giving Iron(II) Sulfate as a
product: (Balance!!!)

Write the equation for the single displacement of Iron with Copper giving Iron(III) Sulfate as a
product: (Balance!!!)

1. Weigh out approximately 0.20 grams of Iron filings                  actual mass ____________
2. Place 75.0 mL of CuSO4 into a 100 or 250 mL beaker
3. Place the Iron filings into the beaker (stir constantly for 5 minutes)
4. Observe: (what happens?)_____________________________________________________
5. Weigh out a piece of filter paper                                   Weight = ______________
6. Filter the solution capturing the copper on the filter paper
7. Heat (gently) to dryness
8. Remass the filter paper and copper                                  Weight = ______________
9. Weight of copper formed                                             Weight = ______________
10. Moles of copper formed                                             Moles = _______________
11. Moles of copper expected from FeSO4 reaction:                      Moles = _______________
12. Moles of copper expected from Fe2(SO4)3 reaction:                  Moles = _______________
