    hi, can someone help with this question:

    its the february 2010 paper, question 8(c):

    A chemical company has a waste tank of volume 25 000dm3. The tank is full of
    phosphoric acid (H3PO4) solution formed by adding some unwanted phosphorus(V)
    oxide to water in the tank.
    A 25.0cm3 sample of this solution required 21.2cm3 of 0.500 mol dm–3 sodium
    hydroxide solution for complete reaction.
    Calculate the mass, in kg, of phosphorus(V) oxide that must have been added to the
    water in the waste tank.


    this is what the mark scheme says:

    Moles NaOH = 0.0212 × 0.5 = 0.0106
    Moles of H3PO4 = 1/3 moles of NaOH (= 0.00353)
    Moles of P in 25000 l = 0.00353 × 106 = 3.53× 103
    Moles of P4O10 = 3.53 × 103/4
    Mass of P4O10 = 3.53 × 103/4 × 284 = 0.251 × 106 g
    = 251 kg

    I dont get how they worked it out . I undestand the first line of the mark scheme and that is it.
    write an equation of what happens when NaOH reacts with H3PO4

    well without it you're pretty stuffed.

    Its
    H3PO4 + 3NaOH --> Na3PO4 + 3H2O

    we know the number of moles of naoh.

    how do we find the number of moles of h3po4

    i can work the rest out now !!!

    i couldn't find the equation in my notes anywhere! or in the textbook!

    why do you divide the moles of P in 25000dm3 by 4?

    this is the equation i do know

    its


    P4O10 + 6H20 -> 4H3PO4

    How is your chem revision going, this unit seems to be a lot of memory work i think learning all the colours and equations etc.

    definitely lots of memory. tbh i prefer Unit 4 to Unit 5, even though all the people in my college prefer unit 5 to unit4.

    It's coming along fine. Haven't really revised much. Chemistry is like second nature to me. :p: I need not be complacent though. come to think of it, after finishing the biology questions that i'm doing right now, i'll do some chemistry questions.

    How's yours?

    i think this exam is the same as chem4 tbh but i do agree that learning the colours is quite hard
    there must be an easier way to learn all the colours there must be

    but the good thing about the colours is that the exam can only ask normal questions unlike biology so in that sense its ok

    It's a weird day when you realise that dissolving your sugar in your hot coffee is remarkably easier than dissolving sugar in cold water because the enthalpy of solution is endothermic and the equilibrium of the reaction shifts to the right at increased temperatures. And that since the enthalpy change is positive and the reaction is spontaneous, then entropy must also be positive for the free energy change to be negative, so there is an increase in disorder when you dissolve your sugar.

    Cooking will never again be the same for me.
