Given the following equation:
2CH3CO2H + Ca(OH)2 --> Ca(CH3CO2)2 +H2O

If you start with 30 ml of a 5% solution of acetic acid, how much of a .1M Ca(OH)2 solution would it take to completely neutralize the acid?

I'm not quite sure how to start? Should I convert 30 ml to moles? and then use stoichiometry from the equation to convert it to Ca(OH)2?

  1. Yes. Convert 5% soln to M then M x L = mols and use stoichiometry from there.

  3. Is that 5% w/v; if so then it is 5g/100 mL soln. It may be easier to convert to grams. How many g acetic acid are in the 30 mL? That's 5.0 g x (30/100) = ?
    Then mols acetic acid = ?/molar mass.

    How would you balance this equation?? Ba(NO3)2 + NH2SO3H + H2O -> Ba(NH2SO3)2 + HNO3 Would you have to make the H2O 0, ultimately removing H2O from the equation (is that even allowed?), or is there another way of balancing it??
