Determine concentrations in mixture using determinants

Please see attachment. A solvent called "mixed xylenes" contains the o-xylene, m-xylene, p-xylene and ethyl benzene. In the table below, the absorbances of each of the pure components and the absorbance of a sample of "mixed xylenes" were measured at four different wavelengths. All measurements used the same cell and, theref


Imagine that we give N2(+), O2(+) and (NO)+ ions the same velocity of 30.0 km/s and then send them into a mass spectrometer where the magnetic field strength is B=8.5MN/C. How far would the spot on the photographic plate be from the entry point for each ion, assuming that each ion completes one-half of an orbit. The atomic mas

Determine Concentration of Potassium Chromate to Use (Mohr Titration)

A titration of 0.100 M Cl^- with 0.100 M Ag^+ used an end point where silver chromate gives an orange precipitate. Select the concentration of potassium chromate that must be present so the orange-colored silver chromate precipitate will appear just when 99.5% of the chloride has been precipitated. Given: Ksp of AgCl = 1.0 x 10

Oxygen reactions

Oxygen can be preparead in a lab by the reaction: 2KCLO3 = 2H2(g) + O2(g) Question: How many grams of KCLO3 must be reacted to produce 100 g of O2?

Daltons Law of Partial Pressures

Dry air near sea level has the following composition by volume: N_2, 78.08%; O_2 20.94%; Ar, 0.93%; CO_2 0.05%. the atmospheric pressure is 1.00 atm. calculate the partial pressure of each gas in atm and the concentration of each gas in moles per liter at 0 degrees C.

Gas stoichiometry

C2H5OH burns in air: C_2H_5OH(l)+O_2 --->CO_2(g)+H_2O(l) balance the equation and determine the volume of air in liters at 35.0 C and 790 mmHg required to burn 227 g of ethanol. assume that air is 21.0 percent O_2 by volume.

the percent silver of the dime in the oxidation reaction

For my AP chemistry lab, I was supposed to find the percent of silver in a dime. I started out with the formula: Ag + NaCl → AgCl +Na. The dime was put in a covered beaker with NaCl. However, during the experiment oxygen was added as one of the reactants, accidentally. The precipitated silver chloride was obviously con

Mass percentage of sodium chloride in a mixture

A sample of a mixture containing only sodium chloride and potassium chloride has a mass of 3.5650g. When this sample is dissolved in water and excess silver nitrate is added, a white precipitate (silver chloride) forms. After filtration and drying, this precipitate has the mass 7.9143g. What is the mass percentage of sodium ch

Find the mass percent of Tl2SO4.

The thallium (present as Tl2SO4) in a 7.80-g pesticide sample was precipitated as thallium(I)iodide. Calculate the mass percent of Tl2SO4 in the sample if 0.890g of TlI was recovered.
