Directions: Are based on the graph given below: Solubility-Temperature relationships for various salts. (The Y-axis denotes Solubility (kg/litre of water))
What is the correct answer?
If 1 mole of Potassium Chloride weighs 0.07456 kg, approximately. How many moles of Potassium Chloride can be dissolved in 100 litres of water at 36°C?
Correct Answer :
Solubility of potassium chloride at 36°C = 0.4 kg./lt. so, in 100lir solution the amount of Potassium chloride dissolved in = 40 kg. Number of moles = 40 / 0.075 = 533 approx. 540 moles can be dissolved in 100 lt. of water at 36°C.
