Other three contain water of crystallization blue vitriol (CuSO4 .5H2O), washing soda (Na2CO3 .10H2O) and gypsum (CaSO4 .2H2O).
The number of water molecules that are attached to a molecule of salt is called its water of crystallization. It is also known as water of hydration. This is necessary to maintain the crystalline structure of a salt. The salts that contain water of crystallization are called hydrated salts.
