Mn04- + 8H+ + 5Fe2+ -------> Mn2= + 5Fe3+ + 4H2O
a multi-vitamin tablet contains vitamins A B C D and iron.
0.325g of a powdered tablet was dissolved in water and a little bit of H2SO4.
12.10 cm3 of 0.002 moldm-3 potassium manganate solution was titrated until permanent pale pink colour was observed.
Calculate the percentage mass of iron in the tablet.
amount og MnO4- = cxv=2.42x10-5 mol
amount og Fe2+= 5 x 2.42 x10-5 = 1.21 x 10-4 mol
so mass is n x M = 1.21 x10-4 x (55.8 x5) = 0.0338
BUT IN THE ANSWER IS DOESNT MULTIPLY THE 55.8 BY 5 AND GIVES THE ANSWER 0.00675 - why do you not x5 when there is 5 moles of Fe2+ ?
0.00675/0.325 = 2.08 %
