Please enlighten me as to the difference between Cus04 and CuS04.5H20. Also how would i "convert" calculations between the two types, as I have used both for an experiment, and need get their concentrations into an equivalent form.

One has water in it (no surprises for guessing which). Done by coordinate bonds methinks? :confused: What do you mean "convert" calculations by the way? If you're just doing concentrations, then find the Mr of both substances then substitute in to find the mol dm^-3 of both solutions.

One is 'hydrated copper sulphate', the other 'anhydrous copper sulphate' - hydrated just means there is water in it.
