Hello everyone
I need your help at once.

How many grams of CO2 are needed to neutralize a 5 L tank of water with a pH of 11.5?

my answer is around 220 grams of CO2.
is that true or not?

  1. I don't get anywhere near that figures but I may have made some wrong assumptions. If you wish to show your work I'll be happy to check it.

  2. Thank you very much indeed for your effort and quick response Sir.

    Please, kindly write your valuable solution down.
    I guess that my solution is likely to be wrong.

    it is necessary to mention that co2 is a one of oil reservoir components at the following conditions: mole percent= 3.6%, reservoir Press. = 3000 - 5000 psi and reservoir Temp. = 200-240 oF.

    meanwhile, the figure above has been mistaken and must be corrected to 0.220 gr co2.

  3. honestly speaking, my field is chemical engg. and don't have a good knowledge in this regard.

    I solved my question through the solution method of the following sample that had answered in this website and used co2 instead of HCL and set a pH of 7!!!! therefore, the figure of .220 gram of co2 must be wrong.

    How many grams of HCl are needed to change 1000 L of water with a pH of 11 to a pH of 5.5?
