titration question help watch

1. I got 1.54x10^-6 moles for the answer for the first question, and 3.3x10^-6 mg for the second, but im not confident with these answers, so if anyone who knows what they are talking about can help, that would be great thanks

IO3 + 5I + 6H+ → 3I2 + 3H2O   Equation 24.1

1. i. The student dissolves some of the iodised salt in a small volume of dilute hydrochloric acid. The student then transfers this solution to a 250 cm3 volumetric flask and makes up to the mark with distilled water.

25.0 cm3 of this solution is then added to a conical flask containing a solution of excess iodide ions. The iodine produced is titrated with a standard solution of 0.00100 mol dm−3 sodium thiosulfate, Na2S2O3, using starch indicator.

The reaction equation is:

2Na2S2O3(aq) + I2(aq) → 2NaI(aq) + Na2S4O6(aq)   Equation 24.2

The student’s results give a mean titre of 15.40 cm3.

Calculate the amount (in mol) of IO3 in the 25.0 cm3 of iodate solution.

amount of IO3 = ................................ .......... mol [2]

ii Calculate the amount of IO3 in the original solution and hence the mass, in mg, of potassium iodate(V) in the iodised salt dissolved.

mass of KIO3 = ................................ .......... mg

Hi,

I'm not sure if my answer is right either but this is the method that I used:

Moles sodium thiosulphate = CV = 0.001 x (15.4/1000) = 1.54 x 10^-5 mol.

From equation 24.2: 2 moles of thiosulphate react with 1 mole of iodine so the moles of iodine used are 1.54x10^-5/2 = 7.7 x 10^-6.

From equation 24.1: 3 moles of iodine were produced from 1 mole of the salt so the moles of the salt are moles of iodine/3 = 7.7×10^-6/3 = 2.57 x 10^-6.

For the 2nd part. If there are 2.57 x 10^-6 moles of the salt in 25cm^3 then there are 2.57 x 10^-6 x 10 moles in 250cm^3 = 2.57 x 10^-5.

m (KIO3)= n × Mr = 2.57 x 10^-5 × 214 = 5.49 × 10^-3 g x 1000 = 5.49 mg.

Hope this helps
3. thanks very much i think youre right, youve been a huge help

No problem, I'm not completely sure if it's right but glad that I could help a bit.
