Step 1

(a) A balanced net ionic equation for the reaction between potassium permanganate and oxalic acid to give carbon dioxide and solid manganese oxide is given below.

Step 2

(b) From the above balanced chemical equation, it can be stated that 2 moles of KMnO4 is reacting with 3 moles of oxalic acid to pro... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMoles of potassium permanganate mol x 20.0mL x L 1L =0.006mol -Molarity x Volume = 0.300- 1000mL 3 Moles of oxalic acid = -x0.006 mol = 0.009mol 2 Molarity of охаlic acid Moles of solute 0.009mol =0.657M 1 1L Volumeof the solution 13.7mL x 1000 mL Therefore, the molarity of 13.7 mL of oxalic acid is 0.657 M. fullscreen
