A 4.50−g quantity of a diprotic acid was dissolved in water and made up to exactly 250 mL. Calculate the molar mass of the acid if 25.0 mL of this solution required 12.0 mL of 1.00 M KOH for neutralization. Assume that both protons of the acid were titrated.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Diprotic acid = 4.50 g in 250 mL
