Question

# When $$KI$$ is added to acidified solution of sodium nitrite :

A
NO gas is liberated and I2 is set free
B
N2 gas is liberated and HI is produced
C
N2O gas is liberated and I2 is set free
D
N2 gas is liberated and HOI is produced

Solution

## The correct option is A $$NO$$ gas is liberated and $$I_2$$ is set freeReduction of the acid gives different products, depending on the reducing agent.With $$I^-$$ and $$Fe^{2+}$$ ions, $$NO$$ is formed.$$NaNO_2 + KI + H_2SO_4 \rightarrow H2O + I_2 + K_2SO_4 + NO + Na_2SO_4$$$$2 NaNO_2 + 2 FeSO_4 + 2 H_2SO_4 \rightarrow Fe_2(SO_4)_3 + 2 NO + 2 H_2O + Na_2SO_4$$Chemistry
