Forms of Copper Sulphate
May I know if copper sulphate comes in what forms? Why do they have different forms?
ps. This is NOT a homework assignment,okie?Cindy J. Jett
Telling us that it is not a homework assignment, doesn't exactly supply the full context to enable us to answer your question properly, Cindy. The most common form of copper sulfate [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] is the blue crystal CuSO4.5H2O. But you can dissolve that in water and have it as a blue liquid, or you can heat it to drive out some of the water of hydration, and you would have anhydrous copper sulphate -- a white powder.
