In the reaction between sodium hydroxide and sulphuric acid solutions, what volume of 0.5 molar sodium hydroxide would exactly neutralise 10cm3 of 1.25 molar sulphuric acid?

  • A. 5cm3
  • B. 10cm3
  • C. 20cm3
  • D. 25cm3
  • E. 50cm3
Correct Answer: Option E

\(2NaOH + H_{2}SO_{4} = Na_{2}SO_{4} + 2H_{2}O\)
V x 0.5M = 2(10 x 1.25)
0.5V = 2 x 12.5
0.5V = 25
V = \(\frac{25}{0.5}\) = \(50cm^{3}\)

Yes the best formula is CaVaNb= CbVbNa / CbNa we have CaVa Nb/CbNa hence 1.25x10x2/0.5x1= 25/0.5 =50cm3
  • Lilian: please how did they got v=250.5=50cm3

  • Elbrain: In this kind of question you will have to state the balanced chemical equation of the reaction before doing the calculation.
    H2SO4 + 2NaOH ---> Na2SO4 + 2H2O;
    Using the formula:-
    (CaVa)/(CbVb) = na/nb
    Ca (conc of the acid) = 1.25M
    Cb (conc of the base) = 0.5M
    Va (volume of acid) = 10cm3
    Vb (volume of base) = Unknown
    na (number of moles of acid) = 1
    nb (number of moles of base) = 2
    Substituting the values in the equation we have;
    (1.25M x 10cm3)/(0.5M x Vb) = ½
    Making Vb the subject of formula we have;
    Vb = (1.25M x 10cm3 x 2)/(0.5M x 1)
    Vb = 50cm3, Therefore the correct answer is option E

Usin cava/cbvb:na/nb therefore,ca=1.25,va=10cm,cb=0.5,vb=?,na=1 from d equation ,and nb=2 frm d equation therefore,goin to d formular 1.25*10/0.5*vb=1/2 wen u crossmultiply,d ansa u get is 50cm

It'z quite easy. Using the volumetric analysis formulae, CaVa/CbVb =Na/Nb where C, V and N are the concentrations, volumes and moles of the reactants, we get:( 1.25x10)/(0.5Vb) = 1/2. Calculating that will give us 50cm cube. NB: Don't 4get to multiply by 2.

Since 2 was added to NaOH to balance the equation, in the calculation why is d 2 use to multiplied both volume and mole of the acid??
