# In the photographic developing process, silver bromide is dissolved by adding sodium thiosulfate.AgBr(s) + 2 Na2S2O3 (aq) → Na3Ag(S2O3)2(aq) + NaBr(aq)If you want to dissolve 0.225 g of AgBr, what volume of 0.0138 M Na2S2O3, in milliliters, should be used?Silver chemistry.(a) A precipitate of AgBr formed by adding AgNO3(aq) to KBr(aq).(b) On adding Na2S2O3(aq), sodium thiosulfate, the solid AgBr dissolves.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

It should be determined that the volume of 0.0138MNa2S2O3, in milliliters, which is required to dissolve 0.225gofAgBr

Concept introduction:

Numberofmole=GivenmassofthesubstanceMolarmass

• The molar mass of an element or compound is the mass in grams of 1 mole of that substance, and it is expressed in the unit of grams per mol (g/mol).
• For chemical reaction balanced chemical reaction equation written in accordance with the Law of conservation of mass.
• Law of conservation of mass states that for a reaction total mass of the reactant and product must be equal.
• Stoichiometric factor is a relationship between reactant and product which is obtained from the balanced chemical equation for a particular reaction.
Explanation

Balanced chemical equation for the given reaction is,

â€‚Â AgBr(s)â€‰+â€‰2â€‰Na2S2O3(aq)â€‰â†’â€‰Na3Ag(S2O3)2(aq)â€‰+â€‰NaBr(aq)

The amount (moles) of AgBr Â available can be calculated by using the equation.

â€‚Â Numberâ€‰ofâ€‰moleâ€‰=Givenâ€‰massâ€‰ofâ€‰theâ€‰substanceMolarâ€‰massâ€‰

â€‚Â 0.225gâ€‰â€‰AgBrâ€‰Ã—1â€‰molâ€‰AgBr187.77â€‰â€‰gâ€‰AgBrâ€‰â€‰=â€‰0.001198â€‰molâ€‰AgBr

By using the stoichiometric factor calculating the amount of Na2S2O3 required based on the amount of AgBr as follows,

â€‚Â 0.001198â€‰molâ€‰AgBrâ€‰Ã—2â€‰molâ€‰Na2S2O31â€‰molâ€‰AgBrâ€‰â€‰=â€‰0
