100% VERIFIED CHEMISTRY PRACTICAL ANSWERS

(1a)
Burette reading (cm)³|1st reading|2na Reading|3rd reading|
Final |15.25|30.53|45.79|
Initial |0.00|15.25|30.53|
Volume of acids used |15.25|15.28|15.26

Average volume of acid used =15.25+15.26/2
=15.255cm³
=15.26cm³
Or =15.27cm³

(1b)
Given; mass con of A =5g/500cm³ = 5g/0.5dn³
CA=10g/dm³
A is HNO3
Therefore molar mass =1+14+(16*3)=15+48=63g/mol¹

Molarity of A = gram con/molar mass
CA=10/63=0.1587mol/dm3

(1bii)
Using CAVA/CBVB =Na/NB
With reacting equation ; HNO³ + NaOH—NaNO3+H2O
nA=1 nB=1
0.1587*15.26/CB*25.00=1/1
25CB=0.1587*15.26
CB=0.1587*15.26/25
CB=0.09687mol/dm³

(1biii)
B is NaOH
Molar mass
23+16+1=40g/mol
Conc of B in g/dm³=molarity * molar mass
= 0.09687*40
=3.8748g/dm³

(1biv)
No of moles present in 250cm³ of NaOH is =molar conc * volume
=0.09687*250/1000
=0.0242moles
Mole ratio of NaOH and NaNO3 is 1;1
No; of mole of NaNO3 which reacted is 0.0242
Mass of NaNO3 formed =molar mass * no; of moles
=85*0.0242
=2.05grams
