2. when a 1.5937 g sample of an uknown hydrate was dehydrated upon heating, 0.8788 g of the anhydrous salt remained
(a) what percent of the original compound was water?
(b) how many moles of water were driven off during heating?
(c)the formula weight of the anhydrous salt is 155.0 g/mol. determine the number of moles of the anhydrous salt
