This would reduce the volume, and you have more volume than would be assumed that the gas is ideal. This allows you to exclude one more option

A white powder is known to be a mixture of MgO and Al2O3.

100 cm3 of 2 M NaOH(aq) is just sufficient to cause the Al2O3 in x grams of the mixture to dissolve.

the reaction occurring is
Al2O3 +   2OH- + 3H2O ..2Al(OH)4-

800 cm3 of 2 M HCl(aq) is just sufficient to cause all the oxide in x grams of the mixture to dissolve.

AL2O3   +    6H+ ...2Al3+   +    3H2O
MgO      +    2H+ ...Mg2+    +  H2O

how many moles of each oxide are present in x grams of the mixture?

Answer is :   Al2O3  ..0.10 g
                   MgO ..0.50 g


For moles of Al2O3....According to first equation moles of NaOH = 0.20 ; so moles of AL2O3 will be 0.10

for moles of MgO...There are 1.6 moles of HCl but this is used for BOTH oxides. so will it be

Moles of MgO = [Total moles of HCl] – [Moles of HCl used for Al2O3] /2 .??? but did not get the right answer ??

Show your result. The given answer in grams is wrong.

it's 0.10 moles (Al2O3) and 0.50 moles (MgO).

1.6 moles of HCl are available..

Al2O3  :  H+
1         :  6

if 0.1 moles of Al2O3 then 0.6 moles of HCl are used up....leaving 1.00 moles to be reacted with MgO

MgO   :   H+
1        :   2
 x       :1.00 ..x= 0.50.....Is this correct working ??

Answer in moles is correct
