Apparatus:

  1. Porcelain crucible with lid
  2. Tongs
  3. Clay triangle
  4. Analytical balance
  5. Ring clamp
  6. Spatula
  7. Fisher burner and lighter
  8. Three large test tubes
  9. Test tube rack
  10. Desicooler

Solutions:

  1. Dilute nitric acid (HNO3) solution
  2. Silver nitrate solution (about 0.1 M)

Solids:

  1. Solid potassium chlorate (KClO3)
  2. Solid potassium chloride (KCl)
