I have 2 questions on my homework that I have been stuck on for the past few days so I was wondering if anyone here could help. The questions are:

50 ml of a .1 M sodium oxalate solution is titrated with a .2 M potassium permanganate solution to it's endpoint in acid solution. The redox products are manganese +2 ion and caebon dioxide gas. Determine the volume of potassium permanganate required to complete the titration.

AND:

A 300 ml water sample was taken from a stream in Mexico City and analyzed for dissolved oxygen. Using the winkler method, 58.88 ml of 2.42 x 10^-3 M solution thiosulfate titrant was required. Calculate the dissolved oxygen in the water and express this as mg/L.

Any help on either problem would be amazing! Thanks!

### Re: Homework help

For the first one develop the chemical equation, C

If you have the equation read how many mole oxalate refers to how many mole permanganate. With this ratio you can calculate with the given samples.
