Homework Help: Chemesitry!

Posted by Anonymous on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 4:02pm.

Sodium thiosulfate, Na2S2O3, is used as a fixer in photographic film developing. The amount of Na2S2O3 in a solution can be determined by a titration with iodine, I2, according to the equation: 2Na2S2O3(aq) + I2(aq) --> Na2S4O6 +2NaI(aq).

Calculate the concentration of the Na2S2O3 solution if 48.50 mL of a 0.1780 M I2 solution react exactly with a 100.0 mL sample of the Na2S2O3 solution. Use 4 sig. fig.

Aside, the end of the titration is determined by the color. NaI is a pale yellow and I2 is a deep purple. Just when the purple color persists, all the iodine that can react has reacted.

Please help! I tried the question and got 14.68 which wasn't right.
