Answer / dilip m patil
1)The gravimetric technique is used to perform the residue
ignition test or sulphated ash test. The residue obtained
after sulfuric acid treatemnt is chemically and thermally
stable and it fulfiles principles of gravimetric analysis
2)The residue obtained without use of sulphuric acid are
sensitive to carbon dioxide and moisture present in lab.
atomosphere. Hence the residues composition changes and
ultimately mass of residues changes during final weighing
of residue and the accuracy and precision of test will be

Answer / mrutyunjay tripathy
Sulphuric acid is a strong oxidising agent which oxidises
the carbon present in the organic samples resulting CO2 &
H2O and converts the metals into their sulphates which can
be easily extracted to perform the heavy metal test.
|Is This Answer Correct ?||26 Yes||3 No|
Answer / mrutyunjay tripathy
To convert the metals present in the sample into their
metalic sulphates which can be easily extracted to perform
the heavy metal test . Infact sulphuric acid is a strong
oxidising agent .

Answer / aamir sohail
it converts most of the metals into their sulphates but not all like phosphorus does not converted into sulphates it remain same till the end of the test, than these metal sulphates further proceed for heavy metal test that how much amount of which metal present in it...
