I thought about the syntax of the problem and I have surmised that what I thought were two questions was actually one. I'm slow but not dead yet.

75g of tartaric acid in 1 liter is used in a titration. 25mL of tartaric acid solution is titrated against 31mL of NH4OH. What is the normality of the NH4OH?

  • chemistry -

    I kept telling you there had to be some connection somewhere. Tartaric acid is H2T.
    H2T + 2NH4OH ==>(NH4)2T + 2H2O
    mols H2T in 75 g = grams/molar mass = 75/150.087 = about 0.5M
    mols H2T used = M x L = 0.5 x 0.025 = 0.0125.
    Convert to mols NH4OH using the coefficients in the balanced equation.
    mols NH4OH = 2x mols H2T.
    Then M NH4OH = mols NH4OH/L NH4OH = ? and that's the same as normality for NH4OH.

    You can do it in normality from the start.
    H2T = 75g/L.
    equivalents = 75g/eq weight = 75/75.043 = about 1M
    Then mL x N = mL x N
    25 x 1 = 31 x N
    N = 25 x 1/31 = ?N
    Should be the same answer either way.
