What kind of reaction is this if it is. Precipitate write down the formula if you said acid-base right down the formula you said redox write down the formula then calculate the mass percent of FE in the sample be sure your answer has to be significant digits. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseTo measure the amount of iron in a certain type of iron ore, an analytical chemist dissolves a 20.0 g sample in strong acid and titrates it to the endpoint with 40.5 mL of 0.2400 M potassium permanganate (KMnO,) solution.
