If you heat CuSO4 in a crucible the amount of water lost can be obtained by subtracting the mass
of the CuSO4 from the mass of CuSO4 times 5H20.

Chemistry is the science of matter and the changes it may undergo given a set of circumstances. While this is also a discipline that is addressed by physics, chemistry is a much more specialized approach. It is one of the physical sciences that is concerned with the study of atoms, molecules, and other matter whether it is in isolation or in a combination, and the study of reactions of these combinations.

There are several disciplines within the field of chemistry such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. The field of physical chemistry involves the in-depth study of chemical processes using the physical concepts of thermodynamics and quantum mechanics.

Analytical chemistry involves the study of actual material samples to better understand the chemical make-up and structure of the material. In the last few years even more disciplines of chemistry have emerged such as neurochemistry, which is the study of the human nervous system.

The reactions and transformations that are the focus of the study of chemistry are either the result of the interaction between chemical substances or the interaction that can occur between matter and energy. A chemical reaction is the transformation of one or more substances into one or more target substances.

To be successful either in high school or college in the study of chemistry, a student should have a strong grasp of mathematics and the science basics including the scientific method. Anyone who wants to study chemistry in order to become a chemist can expect a rigorous course of study over four years of college. The reward is a stable career that can translate into jobs in a number of different fields.

Set the mass of CuSO4.5H2O is x.then the water lost is 90/251x.
