Step 1

(a). Given,

Mass of iron(III) sulfate, Fe2(SO4)3 = 3.55 g

Volume of solution = 1 L

Moles of iron(III) sulfate, Fe2(SO4)3 can be calculated as: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMolar mass of Fe2(SO4)3 (2x55.8) 3[32+(4x16)] 399.6 g/mol 3.55 g Mass Moles = 0.0088 mol Molar mass 399.6 g/mol fullscreen
Step 2

Molarity of Fe2(SO4)3 solution can be calculated as: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMoles Molarity Volume in litres 0.0088 mol Molarity 1 L Molarity 0.0088 mol/L = 0.0088 M fullscreen
Step 3

(b). Given, when Fe2(SO4)3 dissolves in water Fe3+ ions and SO42- ions in the crystal go into the solution.

This can be written as a balanced reaction as :

Fe2(SO4)3 → 2 Fe3+ + 3 SO42-

1 mole of Fe2(SO4)3 gives 2 moles of Fe3+ and 3 moles of SO42-

Therefore, 0.0088 mol of Fe2(SO4)3 will give:

2 × 0.0088 moles = 0.0176 moles of Fe3+ and
