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.

What is the oxidation reaction for Ag + NaCl?

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

Calculating ppm

The chloride in a saline solution was determined by the Volhard method. A 25 ml aliquot of the solution was acidified with 2 ml of dilute HNO3 and treated with 25 ml of .1749 M AgNO3 (fw 169.9), causing precipitation of AgCl. After addition of several ml of nitrobenzene, the solution required 26.40 ml of .1575 M KSCN to reach t

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.

Atomic masses: relative abundance

The element Europium exists in nature as two isotopes: 151Eu has a mass of 150.9196 amu, and 153Eu has a mass of 152.9209 amu. The average atomic mass of europium is 151.96 amu. Calculate the relative abundance of the two europium isotopes.
