Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Phat Pat on Friday, May 7, 2010 at 9:03pm.

Find the mininum ammount of 5.0 M HNO3 needed to dissolve 2.72 g of Cu (s). I have the balanced equation here:


Obviously it is a 2 moles NO3- to 3 moles of Cu (s) ratio. I converted grams Cu to moles (0.04280)), then multiplied by 2/3 (ratio of NO3- to Cu) which gave me moles of NO3- (0.02853). I then solved for the volume required by dividing those moles by 5.0 M, however when I submit the answer I is not correct. Can anyone see my error? The answer I am getting is 5.7 mL.
