##### Titration Problem
« on: March 31, 2006, 10:58:09 PM »
Help, I'm not sure if I'm doing this right...

"The volume of a sample of pure HCl gas was 189 ml @ 25 deg celsius and 108 mmHg. It was completely dissolved in about 60 ml water and titrated with an NaOH soln; 15.7 ml of NaOH soln were required to neutralize the HCl. Calculate the molarity of the NaOH soln."

Here's what I did:

NaOH + HCl --> H2O + NaCl

PV = nRT
(.142 atm)(.189 L) / (.082057)(298.15 K) = .001097 mol HCl

.001097 mol HCl * (1 mol NaOH / 1 mol HCl) = .001097 mol NaOH

Molarity (M) = .001097 / .0157 L = .0698 M for NaOH

Am I on the right track, or way off?

Tia!

Looks correct.

OK

Classic question for EBAS, in fact I even didn't bothered myself with checking your approach - I just calculated what the final result should be

Oops, Albert was faster

Thanks guys!

Jeez, I wish I had the answer keys, so I don't have to ask everytime -I always doubt myself when doing problems...

Anyway, back to doing more...

R=8.314 J/(K*mol)!!!!
You have mistake!

No, the value used is correct. It all depends on the units used:

0.08205783 L*atm/(K*mol)
8.314510 kPa*dm3/(K*mol)
8.314510 J/(K*mol)
8,314472 L*kPa/(K*mol)
62,3637 L*mmHg/(K*mol)
83,14472 L*mbar/(K*mol)
1.987216 cal/(K*mol)

8.314510 and 8,314472 are basically the same, they are from different sources and I don't remember now why do they differ.

Yes, I'm sorry.
