Calculation problem

Post by ned_yas »

Hi people,

I'm trying to solve the following problems:

Problem 1:
1) How many grams HCl with mass fraction ω=36,5 % will fully dissolve 6 g Mg?
2) What's the mass fraction ω of MgCl2 in the formed solution?

For 1) I've calculated that 18,25 g HCl will fully react 6 g Mg - is this correct?
For 2) will the MgCl2 solution have ω=36,5 %? - is this correct?

Problem 2:
How many grams HCl with ω=30 % are needed to neutralise 500 ml NaOH solution with density ρ=1,2 g/ml and ω(NaOH)=10 %?
My calculations give 182,5 g HCl needed to neutralise the given amount of NaOH - is this correct?

Thanks for verifying and helping in advance.

Greetings,
Ned

1) you calculated the 100% of HCl, not 36,5%
Second one is also wrong
2) is correct

Yes, many thanks @ChenBeier - meantime I realised my mistake and corrected - it should be for 1) 50 g solution of HCl, and for 2) 42,8 % MgCl2 :)
