0.76 g of a silver salt of a dibasic acid was ignited. It gave 0.54 g of pure silver. The molecular mass of the acid is .
Mass of the silver salt taken = 0.76 g
Mass of silver left = 0.54 g
Basicity of the acid = 2
We know that,
Weight of silver saltEqivalent weight of silver salt=Weight of silverEqivalent weight of silver
Solving for E, we get E = 45
Since the acid is dibasic,
