A 35.0mL sample of an unknown #HClO_4# solution requires 50.3mL of 0.109M #NaOH# for complete neutralization. What was the concentration of the unknown #HClO_4# solution? The neutralization reaction is: #HClO_(4(aq))+NaOH_((aq))→H_2O_((l))+NaClO_(4(aq))#
The molarity of the perchloric acid solution is equal to 0.166 M.
Start with the balanced chemical equation for this neutralization reaction
Use the sodium hydroxide solution's molarity and volume to determine how many moles were needed to completely neutralize the acid
Automatically, this is equal to the number of moles of perchloric acid present in solution. This means that the molarity of the initial perchloric acid solution was
Rounded to three sig figs, the answer will be
