Finding Composition of Minerals: Finding Composition of Minerals The mineral hydromagnesite is a hydrated carbonate of magnesium, with the formula Mg x ( CO 3 ) y (OH) z . n H 2 O and a molar mass of 466. When 2 grams of a pure sample of hydromagnesite is heated until its mass is constant, 0.756 grams of carbon dioxide was given off, together with steam. The remaining white solid from the above decomposition was completely dissolved in 100 cm 3 of solution of 1.0 mol dm -3 hydrochloric acid. The resultant solution was transferred into a volumetric flask and diluted to 500 cm 3 with deionised water. A 50 cm 3 aliquot of this diluted solution required 57.0 cm 3 of a 0.10 mol dm -3 solution of sodium hydroxide for complete neutralization. Calculate the value of x and y. Deduce the values of z and n.
