How many grams of Ca(OH)are needed to neutralize 25.0 mL of 0.1 M HNO3?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The balanced chemical equation between Ca (OH)2 and HNO3 is given as,

Step 2

To calculate the amount of Ca (OH)2 required to neutralize 25 mL of 0.1 M HNO3, let us first calculate the number of moles of both.

Step 3

Now as per the balanced equation,

1 mole of HNO3 reacts with 0.5 mole of Ca (OH)2,

Hence, 2.5 x 10-3 moles of HNO3 will reacts with 0.5 x 2.5 x 10-3 moles of Ca (OH...
