ions. Also, they may over-focus on the concept that weak acid can react with strong alkali to produce acidic salt, instead of normal salt. e.g : H3PO4(aq) + NaOH(aq)--> NaH2PO4(aq) +H2O(l) H3PO4(aq) + 2NaOH(aq)--> Na2HPO4(aq) +2H2O(l) These above reactions are absolutely correct, but we have to answer carefully for what the question asks.It said 'In which of the following cases may it obtain a complete neutralization?' It is not necessary for the salts produced is acidic, we cannot eliminate the case that normal salt is formed. Whether the neutralization is complete or not can only be determined by mole calculation. H3PO4(aq) + 3KOH(aq)--> K3PO4(aq) +3H2O(l) Mole ratio of H3PO4: KOH = 1:3 Using the formula, ? Molarity of a solution M or mol dm-3 = Number of moles of solute (mol) / Volume of solution (dm3) ?Number of moles of solute (mol) = Molarity of a solution M or mol dm-3 X Volume of solution (dm3) Number of moles of H3PO4 given: 0.100 X (20.0 /1000) ...read more.

Conclusion

If a student chooses A, it means he has wrong concepts on mole calculation (reacting masses and volumetric analysis), neutralization and strength of acid and alkali. If a student chooses C, it means he has wrong concepts on mole calculation (reacting masses and volumetric analysis). If a student chooses D, it means he has wrong concepts on strength of acid and alkali. To conclude, The steps to tackle this question are as follows: 1) See if there are reactions that are not considered as neutralization first. Option (2) can be eliminated instantly, thus the correct answer can only either be B or C. 2) In both answers B and C, we can see that option (3) is included so it implies that options (3) must be correct. It is unnecessary to determine whether it is correct or not by mole calculation. 3) We only need to determinate whether options (1) and (4) is correct or not based on mole calculation. If the calculation is correct, we can deduce that option (1) is correctwhereas option (4) is incorrect. 4) Finally we can conclude that only options (1) and (3) are correct, which lead to the fact that the correct answer should be B. ...read more.

    Because the gas trapped between the polystyrene material hinders the convection currents, heat loss is reduced. This ensures that accurate temperature readings are taken. Goggles Used to protect the eyes from the corrosive substances which will be used in the experiment.

  1. Acid-Base titration of Sulphuric acid and Sodium Hydroxide

    Hence the number of moles of sodium hydroxide reacting will be twice that of sulphuric acid. If the acid is added drop wise to the base with phenolphthalein solution then, when it reaches the end point the colour will change from pink to colourless.

  2. Investigate the factors, which affects how quickly Calcium carbonate reacts with hydrochloric acid.

    I had trouble timing the watch because sometimes the gas given off was pretty quick and it was difficult for me and my assistant to stop the watch accurately. I also had trouble with filling the measuring cylinder with water and then Turing it over, because a lot of water began to fly out as I tuned it over.

    As the amount of liquid ester in the system decreased, the forward reaction rate increased to replenish the loss. As a result, the amount of ethanoic acid decreased to reach another equilibrium position. Although the equilibrium constant would not be affected.
