Solving a Reaction Problem
If you had 3g of 4-chlorobenzoic acid dissolved in ether, how many ml of a 4M NaOH solution would be needed to react with it all?
Molecular weight of 4-chlorobenzoic acid = 171.578 g/mol
Therefore,the number of moles of 3 gms of the acid
= weight/ mol weight = ...
The solution gives the concise, clear steps to finding how much sodium hydroxide is necessary to react with the specified acid dissolved in ether.
