What is the mass of sulfate of ammonia that can be obtained from 1.00 tonne of sulfuric acid and 0.500 tonne of ammonia?
Well, we need (i) a stoichiometric equation..............and get
Two equiv of ammonia react with one equiv sulfuric acid to give one equiv of the salt,
And so we calculate the molar equivalence of each of the given reagents.......(ii)
Now clearly, there is a STOICHIOMETRIC excess of ammonia. Agreed? And the limiting reagent is sulfuric acid. At equivalence, there are
This represents a mass of
Now this is a hard question for an A-level student, or even a 1st year chem student. But all I have done is to (i) write the stoichiometric equation, and (ii) calculated the molar equivalence; and this is made difficult here because they quote mass in
As to the second part of your question, ammonia, is a BASIC species. It undergoes an acid base reaction in water according to the following reaction.........
were I do to this with hydrochloric acid, I would get:
