Deducing the composition of iron in oreWatch
We have to plan an experiment to determine the proportions by mass of iron(II) and iron(III) in a sample of iron ore. It cantains impurites but they do not react. I was thinking about doing a titration with potassium manganate, and a reduction of Iron(III) using sulphuric acid and zinc.
Any help appreciated
see you when i turn around these_apples
What will be provided in your test?
Ok, i found one website ...plz check this. Hope it can help
it talks of reducing Fe(III) to Fe(II), but i think that if we were to reduce Fe(III), we would not be able to then calcalute the porportions of both ions present in the sample of iron ore.
this is the toughest piece of work i've had to deal with because the internet seems to not have the answer!
any more ideas?
