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.

  2. The rate of reaction between magnesium and sulphuric acid.

    The graph indicates that if you double the concentration the rate of reaction doubles, this proves my prediction correct. If there is an increase in the number of particles in the solution it is more likely that they will collide more often.

  1. Determine Solubility of KClO3 Salt.

    Supersaturated solutions are unstable. When prepare for crystallization, the molecules or ions of solute must arrange themselves properly to form crystals. The unit we been use for solubility in this experiment is gram/100-mL. There are many kinds of units to describe how much solute we have in a solvent.

    It is because when the concentration of the acid and alkali increases, the acid and alkali particles also increase, since the volume is kept constant. When there are more reacting particles (H+ ions and OH- ions) more heat will be liberated, thus temperature difference between the initial and final temperature,

    Another reason for not touching the water too much is that if water gets onto the floor there is a risk of people falling over; therefore this risk should be minimized Variables Although these do not affect the value of the reaction constant I will still aim to control some variables.

    25cm3 of ethanol was added to the filtrate and any formed crystals were redissolved by gentle heating. The solution was covered with a filter paper and was put in a dark cupboard for crystallisation to occur. The crystals were filtered off and washed with a 1:1 mixture of ethanol and water.
