How many grams of solid zinc metal will completely react with 100.0 mL of 0.0525 M HCl, if zinc chloride and hydrogen gas are the only products?
The first step is to write the stoichiometric equation, in order to establish the molar equivalence.........
And then we use the relationship,
And so here..............
And thus we require a half equiv of zinc metal, i.e.
But typically we would add a known stoichiometric EXCESS of hydrochloric acid, and either collect the dihydrogen gas evolved, OR back titrate with standardized
