想問一個chem既experiment

有冇人可以將 "simple experiment to determine the percentage of oxygen in air" 既實驗話我知個concept....我睇完本書都係唔明佢點樣去test

個experiment係用 copper + oxygen 變左 copper (II) oxide 既 equation去做..

希望有人答到我...我地學校冇教呢課

一萬個多謝to答到既人^o^

    You may aware that N2 and O2 are the major components of the air. The air composition are as follows:

    Nitrogen 78.0842%

    Oxygen 20.9463%

    Argon 0.93422%

    Carbon dioxide 0.03811%

    Water vapor about 1%

    Since Copper metal will not make any reaction with N2 during heating, it only react with O2 to become CuO and CuO will remain into the central part.

    If you push 100cm3 of air using gas syringe to the copper turning, you will find that the resulting volume of the collecting gas syringe will be smaller, it is becuase O2 is reacted with copper. Therefore, the volume difference between the original and the resulting volume is the volume of O2 in the air.

    So you can determine the percentage of O2 in air.

    Please surf the reference site for the details of this experiment.
