DISSOLUTION OF CUPRIC SULFATE CRYSTAL<br />
(Variations Available)<br />
CuSO4*5H2O (Copper II Sulfate)<br />
Cupric sulfate pentahydrate crystal dissolves in water. Fast moving water molecules strike vibrating exposed ions of the crystal. Positive side of H2O molecule attracts SO4 2- ions & negative side of H2O molecule attracts Cu 2+ ions, causing dissolution.
