Problem 102P

PROBLEM 102P

Lakes that have been acidified by acid rain can be neutralized by the addition of limestone (CaCO3). How much limestone in kilograms would be required to completely neutralize a 5.2 × 109-L lake containing 5.0 × 10−3 g of H2SO4 per liter?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 102P

Given:

Volume of lake is 5.2 × 109-L and Amount of H2SO4 present is = 5.0× 10−3 g

We have to find out the amount of CaCO3 in kg required to neutralize a 5.2 × 109-L lake

5.0×109 L × 5.2×10-3 g/L = 2.6×107 g H2SO4 

2.6×107 g H2SO4 / 98.1 g/ mole = 2.65×105 mole H2SO4 

CaCO3 +...
