In this problem, we are asked to:
A) Determine if we can formulate a law from the observations in A and B
A chemist decomposes several samples of carbon monoxide into carbon and oxygen and weighs the resultant elements. The results are shown below:
|Sample||Mass of Carbon (g)||Mass of Oxygen (g)|
Next, the chemist decomposes several samples of hydrogen peroxide into hydrogen and oxygen. The results are shown below:
|Sample||Mass of Hydrogen (g)||Mass of Oxygen (g)|
Can you formulate a law from the observations in A and B? Can you formulate a hypothesis that might explain your law?
