Rough- 24.10,0.00,24.10
First- 23.80, 0.00, 23.80
Second- 23.75, 0.00, 23.70
Third- 23.75, 0.00, 23.75
Average volume of A used = 23.80 + 23.70 + 23.75cm^3/3
=23.75cm^3

==================================
(2)Tabulate
Test
(a)(i)Fn+H2O,then
filter
Observation
White residue and blue
filtrate was observed
Inference
Fn is a mixture of
soluble and insoluble
salts
Test
(ii)Filtrate+NaOH(aq)in
drops,then in excess
Observation
A blue gelatinous
precipitate which is
insoluble in excess
NaOH(aq)was formed
Inference
Cu2+present
Test
(iii)Filtrate+NH3(aq)in
drops,then in excess
Observation
A pale blue gelatinous
precipitate was
formed. The precipitate
dissolves or is soluble
in excess NH3(aq)to give
a deep blue solution
Inference
Cu2+confirmed
Test
(iv)Filtrate+dil.HNO3
+AgNO3(aq)
Observation
No visible reaction
White precipitate
formed
Inference
Cl-present
Test
+NH3(aq)in excess
Observation
Precipitatedissolvedin
excessNH3(aq)
Inference
Cl-confirmed

3a)
I)Desiccator- use for preserving moisture sensitive items

ii)Volumetric flasks are used for precise dilutions and
preparation of standard solutions.

iii)Glass rod are used to mix chemicals and liquids for
laboratory purposes .

3ii)
i)Amphoteric is Al2O3

ii) Neutral oxide is H2O

3iii) Crystallization

3b.
1. hno3aq to cuco3 solid. a light blue solid,
precipitates is formed

2. acidified kmno4 to c2h4. c2h4 is oxidized to
ethane-1,2-
diol

3. iodine solution to a paste of unripe plantain. a
bluish-black color is produced with iodine
