-Water of crystallization is the water forming part of the crystal structure of a certain substance, known as crystalline hydrates. Water of crystallization can generally be removed by heating a sample. In the experiment, when borax is heated at 130 0C, it loses the water of crystallization and from the weight loss we can determine the amount of water of crystallization.


  • To deduce the number of molecules of water of crystallisation in a given hydrated salt.


  •  Quantitative Analysis.

Tens of 3D simulations of science with you everywhere and all the time

You can easily access more than 130 of the 3D simulations of Physics, Chemistry and Biology anytime via your PC, laptop, tablet or even your smartphone, without any need to install an additional driver software.

Our virtual lab aims to facilitate the science teaching process for educators and also make it easy for students to absorb the theory and the application of all science experiments.

All of the 3D simulations are baked with a helping multimedia files to ensure that all learners can perform the science experiments without facing any difficulties.

Our virtual labs enable your institution to save most of physical labs budget

Save most of the money you always dedicate to spend on the materials and tools of the physical science labs. PraxiLabs will enable your students to repeat the steps of the experiments for unlimited times without any need to spend more money to get lab supplies.

Praxilabs will reduce the regular costs that allocated for the maintenance of the equipment of your physical labs as well as helps to increase its lifetime due to the lower frequency of usage.

You will also be able to teach your students how to perform the science experiments that requires a very expensive equipment without the need to purchase such equipment.
