Step 1

The balanced chemical equation of Ca(OH)2 and HNO3 is –

Step 2

Since, 2 moles of HNO3 reacts with 1 mole of Ca(OH)2.

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

To calculate the amount of solid Ca(OH)2 required to neutralise 17.4 ml of a 1.30 M HNO3, we will first calculate the no. of moles of Ca(OH)2  and HNO3. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseNo. of moles of HNO = 1.30 M x 17.4 mL 1.30 mol/L x 0.0174 L 0.02262 mol fullscreen
Step 3

Now as per the balanced equation, I mole of HNO3 reacts with 0.5 mole of Ca(OH)2.

Hence, 0.02262 mol of HNO3 reacts with 0.5 mole of Ca(OH)2 gi... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMass No. of moles of Ca(OH) Molecular mass Mass 0.1131 mol 74 g/mol = 0.1131 mol x 74 g/mol Mass 0.83694 mol Mass fullscreen
