1. You want to prepare 50cm cube of 0.1m NaOH frrom exactly 50%(wt/wt) NaOH solution. What volume of the 50% solution is required?

2, what is a primary standard? Can KOH be used as a primary standard? Explain.

3. An aqueous sample is analysed and found to contain 4% NaOH.

(i). Calculate the concentration of the molar concentration of the solution assuming the density of water is 1.00g/cm cube.

(ii). If the solution is neutralized with 1.0M H2SO4, what volume of the acid will be needed.?

First of all what is the Molar conc of 50% wt/wt of NaOH?

50% wt/wt means 50g NaOH/100g water.

If we assume density of water is 1...

then you have 50g NaOH /100mL water.

thus the mass conc = 50g/0.1L (note that 0.1L = 100 mL).

thuse mass conc = 500g/L.

but molar mass of NaOH is ~ 40g/mol

and more so molar conc = mass conc/ molar mass

therefore the molar conc = 500g/L ÷ 40g/L

= 12.5mol/L or 12.5M

now using C1V1 = C2V2 .....(1)

where C1 is the initial molar conc = 12.5M

V1 is the volume of the initial solution you will need to measure out = unknown.

C2 is the Molar conc of the solution you want to prepare = 0.1 M

V2 is the volume of the solution you want to prepare = 50mL.

thus making V1 subject of the formula from equation (1) you will have ;

V1 = (C2V2)/C1

thus V1 = 0.4 mL.
