# A 6.00 gram sample of a dry mixture of potassium hydroxide, potassium carbonate, and potassium chloride is reacted with 0.100 liter of 2.0?

A 6.00 gram sample of a dry mixture of potassium hydroxide, potassium carbonate, and potassium chloride is reacted with 0.100 liter of 2.0 molar HCL solution

A 249 milliliter sample of dry CO2 gas, measured at 22*C and 740 mmHg, is obtained from the reaction. What is the percentage of potassium carbonate in the mixture?

Relevance

Supposing the given amount of HCl is sufficient to react with all of the KOH and K2CO3:

n = PV/RT = (740 mmHg) x (0.249 L) / ((62.36367 L mmHg/K mol) x (22 + 273) K) = 0.01002 mol CO2

K2CO3 + 2 HCl → 2 KCl + CO2 + H2O

(0.01002 mol CO2) x (1 mol K2CO3 / 1 mol CO2) x (138.2055 g K2CO3/mol) / (6.00 g) = 0.230803 =

23.1% K2CO3

Its very simple. I will give you the answer, but you first have to choose my answer as best answer then I will edit my answer and put the answer to your question showing full calculations as well.

• Nice idea but once BA is awarded the question is closed and cannot be edited. .

There should be some way of rewarding the answerer ... the asker is under no pressure to respond
