how much of khp do you measure out to get a value of 240mg/l

• science -

This makes no sense at all. What is khp?

• science -

khp is potassium hydogen phthalate I need to know how much to measure out to get a value of 240mg/L for a Bod standard

• science -

KHP. Much different that khp.

What volume do you want to make? 200ml, or 45liters?

mass= concentration*volumeDesired
mass= 240mg/liter*VOLUME

• science -

need to make up one liter

• science -

Add 240 mg to a liter of water. You may end up with a volume > 1 liter. In that case, add more KHP until M(KHP)/240 = V'. Then discard V' - 1 liter, leaving yourself with 1 liter containing 240 mg of KHP.

Potassium hydrogen phthalate (molar mass = 204.2g/mol) is used to standardize sodium hydroxide. If 26.37 mL of NaOH(aq) is required to titrate 0.7719g KHP to the equivalence point, what is the concentration of the NaOH(aq) (26.37 mL …

Okay, mol KHP = (0.7719)(mol KHP/204.2g KHP) = .0038mol Since this is a titration then the moles of NaOH = the moles of KHP M = mol/L M = .0038mol/02637 M = 0.01441
