precipitate forms.
a. What is the mass of the precipitate when 2.76g of aluminum sulfate in 125mL of solution is
combined with 85.0 mL of 0.2500 M sodium hydroxide?

Step 1

a) The equation for the reaction is

Step 3

Since 1 mole of aluminum sulphate reacts with 6 moles of NaOH, the mole ratio is 1:6.

The mole ratio of the moles obtain... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose6 moles of NaOH form 2 moles of Al(OH) when there are 0.02125 moles of NaOH present 2x0.02125 moles of Al(OH, formed 6 = 0.00708 moles mass moles x molar mass = 0.00708molesx 78g/moles = 0.553 g fullscreen
