PROBLEM 115P

Consider the reaction for the synthesis of nitric acid:

3 NO2(g) + H2O(l) → 2 HNO3(aq) + NO(g)

(a) If 12.8 L of NO2(g), measured at STP, is allowed to react with 14.9 g of water, find the limiting reagent and the theoretical yield of HNO3 in grams.

(b) If 14.8 g of HNO3 forms, what is the percent yield?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 115P

Given:

3NO2(g) + H2O(l)→2HNO3(aq)+NO(g)

Volume of NO2 = 12.8L

Mass of water = 14.9 g

Here we will have to calculate the limiting reagent and the theoretical yield of HNO3 in grams.

Explanation

First we have to find the no of moles in 12.8 L of NO2.

The molar volume of a gas at STP is 22.41 L/mol so you have

12.8 L NO2 = 12.8/22.41 = 0.5712 mole

Now, number of mole of H2O is equal to = given mass / molecular mass

Thus for 14.9 g of H2O = 14.9/18.01 = 0.8273 mole

The mole...
