Question

# The number of moles of $$H_{2}O_{2}$$ needed to reduce $$1$$ mole of $$KMnO_{4}$$ in acidic medium are:

A
2 moles
B
2.5 moles
C
5 moles
D
3 moles

Solution

## The correct option is D $$2.5$$ molesThe overall reaction is, $$6H^+ + 2MnO_4^- + 5H_2O_2 \rightarrow 5O_2 + 2Mn^{2+} + 8H_2O$$.Therefore, the valency factor of $$H_2O_2$$ is $$2$$. Since, the valency factor of $$KMnO_4$$ is $$5$$ in acidic medium, the number of moles required to reduce is $$\dfrac{5}{2}$$ moles.Option B is correct.Chemistry
