Density of solutions answers
The concentration of solutions is often conveniently described in terms of the solutions’ percentage
composition on a weight basis. For example, a 5% sodium chloride solution contains 5g of sodium
chloride in every 100g of solution (which corresponds to 5g of sodium chloride for every 95 g of water
Prepare solutions of sodium chloride in distilled water consisting of the following percentage by weight:
5%,10%,15%,20%,25%. Prepare 25 g of each solution (you do not have to prepare 100g of each solution
to be able to use the percentage composition). Make the weight determination of solute and solvent to
the nearest milligram.
Using the method described earlier for samples of pure liquids, determine the density of each of your
sodium chloride solutions. Record the temperature of each solution while determining its density.
Construct a graph of the density of your solutions versus the percentage of NaCI the solution contains.
What sort of relationship exists between density and composition?
Use a handbook of chemical data to determine the true density of each of the solutions you prepared.

What is a standard solution of acid or base?
Rather than titrating the active ingredient in an antacid tablet directly with a standard solution
of a strong acid in our buret, in this experiment we first dissolve the antacid tablet in a
measured excess of standard acid, and then titrate(with standard sodium hydroxide solution)
the portion of the acid that was not consumed by the tablet. Explain.
Some of the common bases used as the active ingredient in commercial antacid tablets are
listed below. Calculate the number of milliliters of 0.100 M HCI solution that could be
neutralized by 1.00g of each of these substances. Show your calculations at the bottom of this
Write the balanced redox equation for the reaction of iron (II) ion with permanganate ion in
acidic solution.
Another common anaylsis for iron is titration of iron (II) with potassium dichromate,
K2CR2O7. Divide the following reaction into half-reactions, balance the half-reactions, and
combine the balanced half-reactions into the balanced overall equation for the reaction.
Fe^2++Cr2O7^2-+H+ -->Fe^3++H2O
Use a chemical dictionary, handbook, or encyclopedia to list several other uses of potassium
permanganate (other than in the analysis of iron samples as in this experiment).

sulfate hexahydrate, FeSO4(NH4)2SO46H2O, calculate the molarity of the KMnO4 solution.
