Question

What is the molarity of a solution of nitric acid if 0.167 g of barium hydroxide is required to neutralize 16.99 mL of nitric acid?

Step 1

The balanced chemical equation between barium hydroxide and nitric acid is shown as,

Step 2

To calculate the molarity, it is required to calculate the moles of nitric acid, which can be calculated as, help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMass Moles of Barium hydroxide Molar mass Moles of Barium hydroxide = 9.74 x 10-4 moles 171.34 1 mole of Barium hydroxide requires 2 moles of nitric acid Therefore, 9.74 x 104 moles of barium hydroxide will require 2 x 9.74 x 104 moles of nitric acid Moles of nitric acid = 2 x 9.74 x 10-4 1.94 x 103 moles. fullscreen
