What happens when ferrous sulphate crystals are heated?

Answer :

On heating the ferrous sulphate crystals loses water and becomes anhydrous ferrous sulphate. It also changes its colour from green to white.


FeSO4.7H2OFeSO4 + 7H2O


If we further heat ferrous sulphate then decomposition occurs and ferric oxide, sulphur dioxide and sulphur trioxide are formed as a result of decomposition.


FeSO4Fe2O3 + SO2 + SO3
