Chemistry groups began the process of figuring out the empirical formula of Zinc Chloride today.  Groups started with a known amount of solid zinc, and then reacted it with hydrochloric acid.  The reaction was then placed on a hot plate until the liquid was boiled away.  The solid zinc chloride remains in the beaker.  Groups will finalize the drying and check the mass of the product tomorrow.
