Just so nobody has to look this up the B.P of Nitric Acid:
Boiling point of 100% Nitric Acid: 83°C (181.4°C)
Boiling point of Azeotrope (68%) Nitric acid: 120.5°C (248.9°C)
In an acid digestion, we add 1.00ml of concentrated (65-70%) Nitric Acid to 100.0ml of water. The measured temperature of the water once it stabilizes is 97.1°C (206.8°C).
Does that 1.00ml of conc. Nitric Acid boil off at any point during this digestion? If so, to what approximate degree?
All replies are greatly appreciated.
