Introduction:

The goal for this experiment is to determine the stoichiometric ratio between silver and an unknown ion. By mixing various solutions of these two ions together, and varying the ratios of one to the other (but keeping the volume constant), we can remove the ions in varying proportions via the precipitate formed. This can be used to calculate the stoichiometric ratios of ions in solution.

 

Given that the conductivity of a solution is dependent upon the amount of ions within it, I hypothesize that by combing these two solutions, having them react, and measuring the conductivity of each solution, that we should then be able to recognize the least conductive of the solutions as having a stoichiometric ratio that is closest to the theoretical stoichiometric ratio for silver ions and the unknown ions. By examining the distribution of the data gathered, we should be able to find that the most feasible of these ratios falls somewhere between the most conductive, and second most conductive solution.
