Determining Precipitate Yield (g) in Aqueous Solution

Given Question: Given the reaction: K3(PO4)+ Ni(SO4)→ K3(SO4)(aq)+Ni(PO4)(s), with 100.0 ml of K3PO4 and 200.0 ml of NiSO4 under standard conditions, how many grams of precipitate form?  Step 1: Determine the limiting reactant and the precipitate.  In order to determine the limiting reactant, one must convert all reactants to moles (mol). In this case, we can … Continue reading Determining Precipitate Yield (g) in Aqueous Solution

Balancing Equations (Chem.libretext example)

The point of this exercise is to practice balancing reactions. Many students get overwhelmed when they face having to balance equation usually because it's hard to determine where to start. Given Problem: Lead (IV) Hydroxide and sulfuric acid react as: Pb(OH)4+H2SO4→ Pb(SO4)2+H2O Balance the equation: 1. The first step to balancing a chemical reaction is to identify … Continue reading Balancing Equations (Chem.libretext example)
