Concept Questions :-

Equivalent Weight & Normality

(d) M eq. of HCl = 5 x1 =5;

M eq. of H2SO4 = 20 x (1/2) = 10;

M eq.of HNO3 = 30 x (1/3) =10;

Thus, total M eq. of acid = 5+10+10=25

Total volume = 1000mL

Also M eq. = N x V,

N = 25/1000=1/40

The chloride of a metal contains 71% chlorine by mass and the vapour density of it is 50. The atomic mass of the metal will be:

(a) 29

(b) 58

(c) 35.5

(d) 71

Concept Questions :-

Equivalent Weight & Normality

(a) Molar mass of metal chloride = 50x2=100;

Let metal chloride be MCln then 

Equivalent of metal = Equivalent of chloride, or 29/E = 71/35.5

E=29/2

Now a+35.5n =100

or n.E+35.5n = 100

n=2

therefore a = 2 x E= 2x(29/2) = 29.3
