Problem 106

Problem106: (a) By titration, 15.0 ml of 0.1008 M sodium hydroxide is needed to neutralize a 0.2053-g sample of a weak acid. What is the molar mass of the acid if it is monoprotic? (b) An elemental analysis of the acid indicates that it is composed of 5.89% H, 70.6% C, and 23.5% O by mass. What is its molecular formula? ?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: Here, we are going to determine the molar mass of the monoprotic acid used. Also, we are going to determine the molecular formula of the acid. Step1: a) Given, molarity of the NaOH solution used = 0.1008 M 15.0 Volume of the NaOH solution used = 15.0 mL = 1000L = 0.015 L Therefore, number of moles of NaOH solution = Volume of solution in litres X Molarity = 0.015 L X 0.1008 M = 0.0015 mol Since, the acid is monoprotic, so 1 mol of NaOH will neutralize 1 mol of the acid Therefore, 0.0015 mol of NaOH will neutralize 0.0015 mol of the acid. Step2: Given mass of the acid sample = 0.2053 g Therefore, molar mass of the acid sample = given mass of the acid / number of moles = 0.2053 g / 0.0015 mol = 136.9 g/mol Thus, molar mass of the acid is 136.9 g/mol. Step3: b) The percentage by mass composition...
