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.

    I thought that 100% acid wouldn't activate these enzymes but it did (before denaturing them). EVALUATION The only problem I had whilst doing the practical work was taking the seedlings from the cotton wool to measure them. They kept getting caught in the cotton wool and I had to be very careful not to break them.

    increase in concentration will increase both the factors affecting heat of neutralization so that no difference can be noted in the ?H whether the concentration is increased or decreased. From this I can conclude that concentration will be directly proportional to temperature change and heat evolved, and heat of neutralization will be constant at any concentration.

  2. 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.
