Chlorine can be prepared in the laboratory by the reaction of manganese dioxide with hydrochloric acid, HCl(aq)HCl(aq), as described by the chemical equation

MnO2(s)+4HCl(aq)⟶MnCl2(aq)+2H2O(l)+Cl2(g)MnO2(s)+4HCl(aq)⟶MnCl2(aq)+2H2O(l)+Cl2(g)

How much MnO2(s)MnO2(s) should be added to excess HCl(aq)HCl(aq) to obtain 115 mL Cl2(g)115 mL Cl2(g) at 25 °C and 805 Torr805 Torr?

Step 1

Given values

Volume of chlorine to be obtained = 115ml

Temperature = 25°C

= (25+ 273.15)K = 298.15K

Pressure = 805 torr

Step 2

Volume of Cl2= 115ml

Since 1ml = 0.001L

Therefore, volume of Cl2= 0.115L

Step 3

According to ideal ... help_outlineImage TranscriptionclosePV=nRT to calculate the moles, rearranging the equation PV RT R 62.36 torr mol'K-1 L 805torr x 0.115L Bel 62.36torr mol'K'Lx 298K 0.00498 moles fullscreen
