are you completely sure about it? because this is the explanation that I have got from a friend:
- molecular mass of CaCl is approx. 111
- molecular mass of 6H2O is approx. 108 (six molecules x 18 = 108)
overall weight of 1 molecule Calcium chloride hexahydrate is 111+108=219
so we need to determine how much of pure CaCl is in one molecule of Calcium chloride hexahydrate:
this means that I should add double amount
any thoughts on this?
