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.

  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.

    This means that I had to measure two 25 cm3 quantities of acid into the calorimeter, which in turn could double the possibility of error. Enthalpy is an extensive property the magnitude of ?H depends on the quantity of reactant, so measuring the correct quantity of acid is important. ?
