IMPORTANT POINT: WHEN CONFRONTED WITH A LENGTHY PROBLEM, JUST TACKLE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME. EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET THE ANSWER AT THE BEGINNING, JUST START DOING WHAT YOU CAN DO.

I'LL SHOW YOU HOW.

===============================

Step 1: Determine the moles of NaOH reacted

(2.4862 mol/L)(0.02750 L) = 0.06837 mol NaOH

According to the titration, this is the amount of NaOH that reacted with the leftover HCl. Therefore, it equals the moles of HCl leftover

Step 2: Determine the moles of HCl that we started with

(1.5222 mol/L)(0.12000 L) = 0.18266 ...

Solution Summary

This solution involves step by step calculations with explanations for finding moles or molecules in a chemical reaction.
