    Ive looked at this over and over and really dont no where to start, any help or hints would be appreciated.

    "To determine the concentration of a saturated aqueous solution of chlorine

    The conc of a saturated aqueous solution of chlorine(approx 7g dm-3) can be determined bya back titration method.

    In the first stage of the procedure the solution of chlorine is added to an excess of a suitable reducing agent such as an iron(II) compound.

    In the second stage the amount of reducing agent left over is determined by titration. (The conc of chloride ions formed in the first stage is too low to affect the titration)

    Plan and describe a procedure that you could use safely to determine the exact concentration of a saturated aqueous solution of chlorine by back titration"

    We've only ever done one back titration at school and i didnt understand it that time! lol

    ok so ive got most of wat im gonna do sorted in my head now. but theres just two things im not sure about (so far anyway lol). is there any way of working out the volume of chlorine solution you should use?
    secondly i'm using FeSO4 as the reducing agent. Is this fine to use just as it is or do i need to add anything to it?

    thanks in advance!
