Question

# The weight of a mixture containing HCl  and H2SO4 is 0.1 g. On treatment with an excess of an AgNO3 solution, the acid mixture gives 0.1435 g of AgCl. Weight percentage of the H2SO4 in the mixture is: (Molecular mass of H, Cl, S, O, Ag, N are 1 u, 35.5 u, 32 u, 16 u 108 u,and 14 u)

Solution

## AgNO3 reacts with HCl to give AgCl. AgNO3+HCl→AgCl+HNO3 Given, mass of  AgCl=0.1435 g ⇒moles of AgCl=0.1435143.5=10−3 mol Accroding to the stoichiometry, Moles of AgCl = moles of HCl Hence Moles of HCl=10−3 mol Mass of HCl=36.5×10−3=0.0365 g So, mass of H2SO4=(0.1−0.0365) g=0.0635 g weight % of H2SO4=.0635×1000.1=63.5%Chemistry
